Maread 07:16
The Mage 07:48
Streets 05:56


Items and Things return with Maread, the labelʼs twenty-third release and a label debut for Argentinean producer Seph. Hailing from Buenos Aires and having previously released on labels that include Dumb-Unit, Cityfox and igloo, Seph (real name Sebastian Galante) provides three exceptionally strong examples of melodically driven house and techno that jump from pole to pole along both the stylistic and tempo divides.
With its distorted vocal line, bouncing bassline, and sharp hi-hat patterns that resonate throughout, EP title track Maread acts as a slice of uplifting main room rhythm that slowly builds with its lyrical tale of sensual deprivation and emotional chaos. As the deep, luscious pads cut through the mix the EP reveals its “shutter moments” to the enchanting, sensually impairing male echoes of someone who “canʼt see”... “canʼt touch.” Tempos rise on The Mage, and while rhythmic intensity may increase, the melodic beauty of the track synthetic bells compliment a dark underlying groove-led techno composition, the trackʼs musical dichotomies providing a welcome sense of magical dance-floor confusion.
Maread rounds itself off with Streets, a slow grooving slice of infectious electronic funk. The trackʼs driving bass and FM chimes hit at the root, the early morning haze of the EP closer completing a memorable package of poignantly atmospheric cuts.
