Making unstoppable waves within the electronic music world over the last few years, Greek artist Argyʼs expertly produced and hypnotic productions are combined with an innate ability to create seductive and highly strung soundscapes during his DJ performances. An unmissable combination, it is with great pleasure that we welcome Argy for his Cadenza debut alongside Lee Van Dowski for the ʻEthiopiaʼs Rise / Bimbamʼ EP.

Marching with shoulders back and head held high, Cadenzaʼs newest recruit treads calculatingly between the
streaming light shafts and echoing potholes of his latest creation - ʻEthiopiaʼs Riseʼ. Coaxing us into the fury
of the night, its creatures play with hollow synth swoops, metallic sparks and snarling drums. A soundscape
that appears to have been created for wild imaginations and underground basements alike, it is fuelled with
mystical suspense and arrogant beats; the depths of Argyʼs impeccable production skills on display for all to
see. Creeping ever forward with rhythmic allure, corners are turned, alleyʼs explored and shadows chased.
As the dust settles and the creatures retreat, ʻEthiopiaʼs Riseʼ and all its chaos descend into a hazy morning 

Argy is tag teamed by Lee Van Dowski and ʻBimbamʼ on the other side. No stranger to the Cadenza outfit, Lee appeared alongside Luciano and Guy Gerber on the ʻVersusʼ Ep in 2009. Here, his original and alternate versions of ʻBimbamʼ secure his seat as an artist we are proud to have onboard at Cadenza.

ʻBimbamʼsʼ scratchy shakers and dewy key arrangements are merely a teasing intro into the driving beats and bemusingly sexy vocal that follows. Riding high with percussive groove and driving force, a spiralling thread of funk on ʻBimbamʼ winds further and further, sparks flying ferociously as rhythmic determination pushes faster and harder. Itʼs impossible not to move to and makes the perfect partner for Van Dowskiʼs ʻAlternateʼ ego on the B2. Flirting with heavy techno kicks and dark stabbing chords, ʻBimbamʼs ʻAlternateʼ partner screeches with the type of impulsive debauchery and eerie mind trips that Lee Van Dowski has become so frequently praised for.
