When we ain’t busting it hard with a fat bassline, we like things a bit deeper here at TYP HQ. Surfacing towards the end of last year and already boasting an array of taste-maker DJ/blog support, dadahack is a new cross-country production duo made up from 1-part James Banbury (based in UK) and 1-part Pete Davis (based in Sweden). The first material they have teased out under their dadahack moniker is a 5-track EP called ‘Hellos’; a heady mix of house, nu-disco, electro and sleaze.
The lead track ‘Hello Dust’ features vocals from Hannah Robinson, but for me it’s all about the sensational 11-minute gritty electro workout from Freelance Hellraiser that never ceases to tires my ears.

The ‘Hellos’ EP drops ahead of a clutch of forthcoming remixes and new tracks from the duo, paving the way for a dadahack album due for release in the next coming months. The full ‘Hellos’ EP bundled with alternative remixes by håkan lidbo and Tranquility Bass can be purchased in high quality via the dadahack homepage.
