Long-time collaborators Lazare Hoche and S.A.M. have linked up on new project ‘Perfect Pushup 01’, the first release on the duo’s newly founded Perfect Pushup label, out today.
two-track, vinyl-only release, ‘Perfect
Pushup 01’ kicks off with the warm, sensual vibes of ‘The AR’, a feelgood house cut that takes the listener on a
blissed-out 12-minute journey. On the flip-side, ‘The GB’ is a chugging, hypnotic slice of disco-inflicted house
that possesses a similarly floor-filling vibe. The launch of the new project, S.A.M.’s first release since the lauded
‘Fury’s Laughter’, will also be
marked with a run of bespoke t-shirts in collaboration with Everpress, available
“Perfect Pushup is the new
project from myself and S.A.M., we wanted to create a fresh brand to showcase
our love for feelgood and soulful house sounds, and we couldn’t be happier with
this EP to announce the label,” Lazare expands.
Lazare and S.A.M. make up two
thirds of Mandar, a house trio who
are prolific despite all living in different cities. Not only a well-respected
DJ and producer, but also the mastermind behind some of the most acclaimed
recent underground records, Lazare’s
journey has taken the Frenchman via several acclaimed underground vinyl
imprints, including Concrete Music and
his very own Access Records and Oscillat Music. Previously performing
at the likes of Ushuaïa, Boiler Room,
Fabric and Output NYC, Lazare
has proven to be a mesmerising performer and certified fan favourite.
Drawing on that irresistible French house sound, ‘Perfect Pushup 01’ marks a new chapter in the story of two prolific house heads.
