HeartWerk – The Man Who Shot The Sheriff (Low Recordings, LOWLA003)
Tulsa resident HeartWerk is hard at work in the state of Oklahoma spreading the soulful sounds of authentic house & techno to the masses. His excellent U Don’t Dance label which he uses as a platform for his music, in addition to others, has carved out a tight-knit community in Tulsa’s local electronic music scene and continues to do so with every release and party. HearWerk now returns to the dynamic, LA- based collective and label, Low Recordings following their exquisite compilation that picked up an array of support from James Zabiela, Gene Farris, Nick Holder, Photonz and many more.
“When I got asked to make an EP for Low I was super excited. I had looked up to the label and the parties they put on in LA since discovering them a few years earlier. It was the end of summer during the pandemic and for some reason I was hopeful lol. This EP became an intense battle with myself. When we had first talked about it I was like oh yeah I can crank that in like a month and a half. Instead it turned into six months of me battling myself during constant changes in my day to day. I’m super happy with how this turned out and serves as a reminder that even when we get down we can still giddieup“. – HeartWerk
‘There’s A New Cowboy In Town’ kicks off with sultry pads, fluttering melodies and irresistible subs that draw you in instantly before ‘Plans That Never Pan Out’ lays down vibrant rhythms fused delicately with soul-infused leads and graceful bass that reverberates underneath. Up next, ‘Oklahoma Corral’ is a dreamy cut combining sparkling synths, infectious grooves and divine atmospheres whilst ‘Printing Clouds Above Us’ displays organic field recordings that harmonise with soothing keys, and celestial ambience. Rounding off the EP with pure energy is ‘Still In Love’, which focuses on effervescent, shuffling drums, resounding bass stabs and rolling vocal samples.
