DJ Haus, one of the two illustrious club maestros in UK funky production outfit Hot City, has a fresh solo endeavor, called Unknown to the Unknown, under which he just dropped the new Assassin EP. We've got the title track from that release here, and it certainly proves itself to be a proper departure from the producer's day job. Instead of the slick, pop-heavy inclinations of Hot City's tunes, DJ Haus crafts a rough-and-tumble bit of hard-stomping dancefloor music chock full of lo-bit audio samples, distorted basslines, and kitschy synth melodies that could've been lifted from any of the boss levels in the Super Mario Bros. games. If that's your jam, you can check out the rest of the release, which includes a remix from Underground Resistance/Drexciya acolyte DJ Stingray, here, and also download a free version of "Assassin" that features Japanese grime MC Dekishi, here. Still not enough? DJ Haus just did an exclusive mix for Sounds of the Universe this month, which you can check out here.
