Ejeca and Citizen Ready Split 12"
- Words: Tim Gentles
UK-house rising stars Ejeca (pictured above) and Citizen have teamed up to deliver the inaugural 12" from new London-based imprint Loft. Opening the split 12" is Belfast producer—and recent XLR8R podcast contributor—Ejeca, whose "Rosario" is a classically-minded slice of garage-inflected house, complete with pitched-up vocals and just a hint of rave euphoria. The flip-side finds Citizen taking things in a deeper direction, with the producer's oblique "U Give Me Love" mixing classic house tropes with the sub-bass of the hardcore continuum. The forthcoming EP will also feature a pair of remixes from Mic Newman and Nicholas. Ejeca's and Citizen's split 12" will see a vinyl release on July 1; in the meantime a streaming preview of the effort can be heard below.
