The latest Night Slugs signing is steeped in mystery - a new project from two big producers (from the House and Dubstep scenes respectively) known only as Velour.

"The Velvet Collection" is a concept EP of four subtle variations on a distinct theme: sleazy, luminescent, synth-soaked cosmic boogie infused with functionalist 808s. The EP is as much futuristic dance/sex music as it is an homage to iconic Roland hardware of the 80s.

Opening track "Booty Slammer" announces Velour's intentions right from the intro, before its longing chords give way to cavernously low booming 808 sub bass. Bittersweet as it is seductive, the track rolls in half-time, punctuated by a vocal refrain: "inside of me". Very sensual!

"The Scent Of Romance" and "Kick It Till It Breaks" both adapt the kind of jackin' drums favoured by the Dirty Bird crew while Velour's distinctive vintage synth work elevates them to the celestial realm. Both tracks work as spectacular tech-house centerpieces, but with enough low-end pressure to dominate any UK soundsystem.

The EP is closed by "She Wore Velour", a theme song for the project, which refigures the record's sound palette into something more direct, driving and up-front. Arpeggiated twinkles and "Ripe Banana"-like pitch-bent beams of synth atop a massive diving sub are eventually consumed by an unforgettable chorus of keys.

From the dancefloor to the boudoir, Velour is a pornographic synth odyssey on Night Slugs.
