Milan based collective Just This present the ‘Enter The Block’ EP from label mainstays Hunter/Game due November 2nd as a digital-only release. Featured in this five-track package are two remixes from Cassegrain and Amandra.
Title track is a minimalist roller featuring subtle acid inflections and a pointillist melody. For their remix, Cassegrain morph the unfurling hypnotism of the original into something more twisted, punctuating its cyclic nature with drawn out tones and frenetic rhythms.
‘Second Floor’ is an exercise in restraint, slowly building around one motif that swirls in and out of focus above stripped back percussion. Amandra provides an unexpectedly angular interpretation for his remix, repurposing the original into a molecular structure of atonal textures driven forwards by marching percussion.
Closing off the EP, ‘Explore’ revolves around a tiny, glistening melody, teetering on the edge of something bigger in a way that builds a brooding tension.

After releasing their debut full length Album on Kompakt last year, Hunter/Game return to Just This with another immersive offering.
On the ‘Dead Soul EP’ the duo continue to refine their expressive yet subtly arranged sound. The title track unfolds slowly, sculpting the melody, texture and suspense. Joey Anderson’s take on ‘Dead Soul’ is airy and atmospheric without losing its pulsing flow. ‘Isolation’ covers a broad spectrum and is filled with contrasts in which intense bass interacts with a delicate and breathy melody.
Balance is key to Hunter/Game’s music and this EP is no exception.

Hunter/Game’s new imprint Just This has just announced their 6th release – Lost EP by Christian Löffler. Featuring exclusive remixes by Lake People and Nuno Dos Santos, this will be the young German producer’s debut on the Milanese label, out digitally December 11 with vinyl coming in February.
Christian’s sound comes from a small city next to the Baltic sea. “Lost” drifts between landscapes, his music expresses a unique vibe drifted from a dialogue through an inspiring nature. Walking alongside “unknown” paths, passing through mysterious boundaries of a unique soul.
Lake People’s interpretation is a strong melting pot of different energies, breaking through a journey that brings flashbacks of a stroboscopic basement, flashing lights and a tipsy dance floor mood.
Nuno Dos Santos is a magnetic translation of a dialogue between soulful ambients and dark atmosphere. Hidden voices whisper melancholic anthems of a never ending night.
Just This label owner and 1/2 of duo Hunter/Game, Emmanuele Nicosia, states “This is one of our label’s most exciting releases – one of our favorite EP’s of 2015”.
