Jacktone Records and Naive have joined forces to release a new split EP from gayphextwin and Pépe.
Both labels have had a pretty superb 2019, with Detroit’s Jacktone Records releasing EPs and albums from the likes of mukqs and label co-founder Doc Sleep, and with Lisbon’s Naive – founded by Violet – blossoming into the underground spotlight with EPs by Ilana Bryne, Overland, Almaty and Photonz.
They’ll both be kicking off 2020 with the ‘Naivetone’ split, featuring original cuts from both artists, who also remix one another to dazzling effect.
San Francisco's gayphextwin brings her typically raw and raging techno to the fore on ‘Where Is My Prairie Sun’, ‘Saunter’ and ‘Spz1’, while previous DJ Mag Fresh Kicks mix selector Pépe once again steps up with radiant takes on electro-infused house and breaks.
Below, you can hear Pépe’s Hyperoxygenation remix of ‘Spz1’ is bouncy and sprinkled with colour with hazy atmosphere. It’s a dream.
‘Naivetone’ will be released in January. Pre-order it here.
