Melinki and Revaux - Totem EP [A R Records]

New Release – Melinki and Revaux – Totem EP

label has rolled its fifth release off the production line, throwing its latest signings together for the heavyweight Totem EP.

After joining the Bristol label’s roster in the summer, – a production duo made up of Yorkshire brothers Ru and Joe Brooks – and South Coast producer Melinki have teamed up for a killer EP just in time for the imprint’s second birthday.

‘Totem’ doesn’t roll so much as prowl, a slickly-produced track with obvious power lurking below the surface, while ‘Unorthodox’ – led by Ozone’s vocals – stomps like a skanking elephant. Revaux go it alone on ‘Overpass’, a dreamy intro giving way to a pounding high-octane roller before the EP closes with ‘Swordplay’, which combines intricate synths with a straight-up bassline that builds up a real head of steam.

The Totem EP is out on A R Records as a double 12″ vinyl this month. Head to to buy.
