The latest release on Belgium's Ensemble imprint arrives early next month from the mysterious Icarus Traxx.
The six-track EP, titled Commandment, is "aimed at dancefloors in sleazy bathhouses, seedy basements, and soiled warehouses," harking back to the days when anonymous artists delivered muscular house cuts for pure dancefloor moments. The 12", which is Icarus Traxx's debut offering, provides a range of varied floor-ready tracks, including three versions of the EP's title track, which also features the sensual vocal work of Jesse B. Simple and Charlotte B. Good—you also get two acapellas. From the energetic "Jack 88 Tape Mix" to the acid-drenched "Get Your Life" and the sultry and sleazy "Spanish Fly Reprise," Commandment is a perfect fit for the sweat-covered early-morning dancefloors.
Ahead of the release, Ensemble has offered up a full stream of the title track's "Spanish Fly Reprise" via the player below, with the EP available for pre-order here.
