Rejected back at Studio 80!
Rejected 028 – Anton Pieete “Culture” out now
Arriving firmly on time for the approaching summer, Rejected welcomes back Dutch techno music maestro Anton Pieete for another killer double track EP fresh out of Amsterdam.
Known for his straight forward contemporary take on techno Pieete once again fuses together experimental synths, high-octane rhythms and rigorous patterns to bring us the next installment “Culture” & “Cotton”
Culture & Cotton both focus on solid groove-layered four to the floor percussion. Culture showcases a futuristic twist with a digital pattern lead, electric synth & a warping bassline, whilst Cotton throws up classical elements of house with its airy synth lead & warm bass both bouncing off a solid tech pulse.
Rejected 027 – Ross Evans – “Tamarind” out now
Entering fresh into 2013, Rejected’s first release is from highly respected DJ and producer Ross Evans aka Ross Evana. No stranger to the scene with his diverse selection of back catalogue releases on highly acclaimed labels, Ross’ consistent and versatile ability at providing solid funky 4×4 grooves shows us yet again he’s on top form with the heavy 2 track EP “Tamarind” which serves as his debut for the label.
From the off we see A side “Tamarind” deliver a powerfully patterned loop built from refined percussion, giving the track a firmly grounded groove throughout. Evans works this with a stuttered synth and a light sample of reverbed vocals, all neatly polished and built up to a sleek & subtle drop making Tamarind a functional addition in any collection. B Sides “Off The Chain” sees Ross concentrate more on synth and bass as a main attraction to the rhythm whilst cleverly adding foreign percussive elements against obscure steamy vocal samples. Evans use of unique and experimental sounds gives “Off The Chain” a curious edge yet keeping it sleek and groovy throughout.
Rejected 026 – Anton Pieete – “It’s A Plucker”
After the release of the mega sultry remix of “Lets Go Juno” with Fellow District One Partner Bart Skills, it’s no surprise Rejected had to have Dutchman Anton Pieete back for REJ026. Pieete certainly shows his consistency at producing driving patterns and original grooves and “It’s A Plucker” EP is no exception.
Straight from the cue “It’s A Plucker” has a clean and crispy percussive loop that’s perfectly patterned, flowing throughout this highly addictive percussive ride. Combined with the balance of a nitty-gritty jazzinfused hook and a trademark deep and dubby bass.
Over on the B side “Ambidancer” drives in full power into a bouncy, groove-ridden bassline. Pieete seamlessly introduces an eerie sounding synth combined with siren elements that work effortlessly together, giving the track a mysterious touch. Perfect for those late night dark dance floors.

Accompanying the punchy kick and groovy bass we have a driving melodic rhythmic lead, which will tear down a treat for any dance floor! With its underlying percussive ride and trademark groove it has all the ingredients for a 4×4 floor filler classic.
Meanwhile on side B of the EP we have “Varta”, with its rolling warm bass partnered with a canorous layout of percussion it’sguaranteed a jive.
