Premiere: Jordan Brando reps Australian tech-house on his new EP, Shake It

The Melbourne-based producer drops a new two-side through Torren Foot and Hey Sam's Jump To This label.

Australia's heaving tech-house scene has been given a leg-up recently, with names including Made In Paris joining the big dogs of Europe, the UK and the US as some of the sub-genre's finest producers. Shake It - the debut, two-track EP from emerging Melbourne name Jordan Brando - hopes to help, with the two lengthy singles boasting a punching, tech-house sound that'll have you floored. Released through Torren Foot and Hey Sam's Jump To This label, Shake It's two singles both feature a grimy, techno-leaning groove, pairing bouncy basslines with raining percussion and repeating, easily-memorable vocal loops placed over the top. Shake It - the EP's title track - is more a calm and collected kicker, with a breezy vocal line making it suitable for chilled moments just as much as it is suitable for the club. Meanwhile, the EP's second single Body Move is just a flat-out heater that'll no doubt leave you dirty and sweaty by the time its relentless, seven-minute drive is over. The young producer has already built a name for himself in Melbourne by supporting names such as the Australia-bound Claptone, but Shake It really takes things in an exciting new direction for the young-gun that'll no doubt see him become a national tech-house staple by the year's end.
