Fresh imprint, we_ctrl, make its debut this July with production duo and label founders, Tomson & Benedict delivering ‘we_ctrl [1]’.

Manchester based duo Tomson & Benedict have been steadily developing a catalogue of solid deep house releases over the past five years on respected imprints such as Freerange, Hudd Traxx, Morris Audio and Urban Torque. The pair journey through garage, house and techno tropes in their collaborations, blending their individual skills and techniques in to chuggy, groove led compositions.

A Side 'Switch' is a straight-forward slab of solid house music, built around tight-knit drum programming hypnotic Rhodes and synth stab melodies and a sternum punching bass hook, showing an evidently dexterous approach to writing music.

On the flip, Tomson & Benedict’s DNA code is split up for two solo cuts. Benedict's 'Automatism', is built up of warm stab sounds, raw drums that create a natural loose swing and a constant progression throughout its near six and half minutes. Tomson's 'Time for Change', features punchy lows and shimmering highs with classic house chords throughout, resulting in a heads down 3am slice of deepness.

With solo releases from the both artists forthcoming before the autumn end featuring remixes from hotly tipped Medlar and Fulbert, we_ctrl is clearly worthy of your attention.
