auntie flo, sarathy korwar – shruti dances (ep)

The sounds at play on this EP are exceptional in their variation. Taken from the now-famous London jazz scene, ‘Shruti Dances’ is buoyed by the work of DJ and producer Auntie Flo, who props up the trance with narrow melodic changes. On Korwar’s side, the deeply personal influences form a straight line from the US to India by way of London; there’s a metronomic, techno consistency about the record which feeds compellingly into its eastern instrumentation. A certain type of dancefloor is begging for these tracks: one that can balance its steady, tight grid with a search for something beyond it.
