Brooklyn based artist, Mike Isai, has been making waves since his debut release on the seminal Hope Recordings back in 2020. He’s gone on the sign with a host of influential imprints, not least onedotsixtwo, Mango Alley and Pure Progressive. Drawing inspiration from the sounds of New York City legendary club scene, Mike’s music is a unique blend of deep beats and soaring melodies.
Now, he makes his Sudbeat Music debut with an exciting double header EP, ‘Exit.’
The title track opens with tribal rhythms reminiscent of Satoshi Tomiie’s excellent Saw Recordings jump from the speaker with fresh appeal. Deep growling bass and spacious percussions draw you in to the rhythmic circus and enchant you with consummate ease. A solid mid set groover that’ll get the floor bouncing. Next up, ‘Tunnel’ with its saw-toothed low end rattles the speakers from the off. Floaty pads keep the energy high in the breaks providing a moment of calm against the cavernous beats. A tougher groove for the late floors, this one has some serious weight.
You can now listen to “Tunnel’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
