Earlier this week, fledgling Spanish label Discomaths released its second vinyl effort, the four-track Love Harder EP from rising Barcelona producer Clip! (whose two-track outing for hometown label Classicworks was featured on the site back in June). On Love Harder, Clip! is said to shed some of his harder techno tendencies in order to reveal his "more emotional side," which—in terms of the EP's closing cut, "You Don't Have To"—finds him crafting a lovely piece of pop-flecked house. Imbued with just the slightest skip, "You Don't Have To" focuses on a series of glassy chords and tastefully chopped R&B vocals; spread across five minutes, Clip! uses his simple array of elements to great effect. Out now, the rest of the Love Harder EP can be previewed after the jump.
