Moralez "Motion Elements (Snuff Crew Remix)"
Although the Facebook profile for Helsinki imprint Top Billin promises "energetic, loud, and nasty" beats, its latest release from Russian producer Moralez takes a welcomed left turn toward temperate moods and old-school sounds. Moralez's Motion Elements EP features a squelchy acid-house tune for its title track, along with remixes by the mysterious German duo the Snuff Crew and Portugal's Photonz. The Snuff Crew focuses on the low end of Moralez's original, molding the bassline into a flat-footed march and sprinkling in sunny chord stabs between bouts of stark drum breaks.
