iO Mulen - Jam - Propaganda Records
Sascha iO from Kiev has been releasing steadily since 2009, starting out big on labels such as Diynamic, Leftroom and Rejected. In the last few years he kept a fairly low profile until a recent release on Adam Shelton and Subb-an's One Records; so it seems his star is on the rise again. Propaganda Records is a vinyl only label from the Ukraine and they've taken it upon themselves to showcase his dreamy and breaks driven tech house. It's all about "Le Song" on the A side with its driving funky bassline and swirling synths. On the flip "Hindsight" packs just as much funk and that rhythm is totally tight, backing some splashes of Ry Cooder style guitars and mesmerising melody.
