Test Pressing mix #456 (that’s correct) comes from Moscow based production duo Odopt, who first surfaced in 2016 on Born Free Records with a scuzzy set of box jams entitled Sickert Art Bartel. Staying with a plug for Stockholm’s Born Free for a moment, they were one of our picks from 2017, releasing all sorts of goodies from off-kilter DIY dub from Pedrodollar (which made my end of year list) to warm and textured productions on the housier end of things from Samo DJ – a label to watch in 2018 for sure. For record number two, Odopt upped their game with a 12″ for Berlin’s Discos Capablanca. Belgrade is a record guaranteed to keep discerning dancers on their toes – check out the haunted techno-disco of Croque Trans Croque below.
As DJs, Odopt keep the emphasis on mystique, conjuring a spell of itchy techno-disco, ill tempered post-punk and fuggy electronics, check their excellent episode on Born Free Radio here and listen to our exclusive Test Pressing mix below – it’s killer. Happy New Year everyone!
Belgrade is out NOW on Discos Capablanca.
