Casino Times returns to Omena with a second EP, Recoded. For those of you that could not get enough of 'Decoded', released in 2017, here's four more tracks - all hitters, no shitters.
Casino flexes his muscles once again. The man hits the jackpot more often than not showing his versatility and eclecticism, running away from easy pigeonholing. You are greeted with a weapon on "Voices". Proper house tune to heat it all up with playful effects and gracious synths.
After making you sweat, we bring things down a notch with "This is My Channel", an electro tune that probably has been heavily influenced by Kraftwerk. The vocal sample is a nice touch. Electro I said, but on the soft warm side of the spectrum.
You also get two more downtempo pieces. My favourite is the closing track which is worth the entire vinyl imho. "Display End Sequence" is a calm, deep house number full of dreamy effects and a cosy, soft bassline that does not let go. A beauty in its own right and my top track in this very very good ep. Casino wins once again. No signs of fading away.

Casino Times turn at Omena towers. Uncompromising straight to the jugular house tracks that will not leave you indifferent. But also offering an introspective affair take on the house genre. Synth ridden, bubbly and warm. Casino hitting the jackpot again. True form.
