Perhaps more than any other artist currently on the Yoshitoshi roster (excluding Sharam), Sinisa Tamamovic has a lasting legacy on Yoshitoshi. His work for the label dates back almost a decade, and his trademark chunky, driving bass lines have become essential elements in Sharam’s sets. Sinisa returns now for another epic EP on the label that is chock full of the heavy, rolling grooves that the Bosnian producer is known for.
The title track ‘Rings’ boasts an abstract melodic hook that sounds like an alien transmission from another galaxy. Translation: PLAY ME! There’s not much to it, but the steady repetitive groove is expertly crafted, keeping listeners constantly on edge with its tense, dissonant build ups. Next up – it’s been a few years, but Dutch techno phenom Egbert is back on Yoshitoshi for the first time since 2011 with a hard-driving remix of ‘Rings.’ Egbert stays true to the original (something we wish more artists would do these days!), but adds plenty of his own flare to beef things up. Stuttery, frenetic drum hits jump in and out of the mix, adding an almost-IDM aspect to the music. Last we have ‘Jam,’ another original from Sinisa that throws frenzied synth riffs over some banging drums for seven minutes of techno thunder. If you need big trax that will keep dancers moving through the night, look no further.
Support and feedback received from Adam Beyer, Hot Since 82, Technasia, Paco Osuna, Eats Everything, Sasha, Audiojack, Sharam and many more!

Sinisa Tamamovic returns to Mindshake once again with his 3rd EP for the label, cementing him as one of Paco Osuna’s most frequented go-to soundmen in recent years. This time he holds nothing back.
The sure stand-out is the title track ‘Green Light’ with it’s prominently rolling yet driving baseline and intricate percussion. It’s spacey overtones fill out the track, making it a pure floor mover.
‘Check It Out’ gets a bit more heady, with perfectly displaced drum fills, change-ups, deep hits and a repeating vocal that gets in your head instantly.
‘Fairy Tale’ takes us on a trip down minimal lane. The perfect aesthetic for those late night or early morning tripped out moments with plenty of atmosphere and stomping percussion.
And lastly, ‘Feedback’ follows the line of ‘Green Light’ in pure techno fashion, with a rolling and driving baseline, complemented perfectly with a subtly effective acid lead that arpeggiates throughout the entire ride of the track.
Don’t sleep… follow the Green Light. Living Atope.
