We're back with a new release from a new artist... Hendrik Zöphel aka JiMMi Hendrik hails from Germany and following a string of cracking releases last year, we are absolutely delighted to present "What Do You Expect",. featuring two original tracks from the man himself, backed up with a remix from label favourite Tom Lown, and Sud Up co-founder Dom Ahtuam under his Syndrome moniker.
Take it Back is a no-nonsense dancefloor track, welding jazz hooks and vocal snippets to an infectious tech house groove, and the title track What Do You Expect builds on this, with its vocal sample, relentless beats, a druggy peak time track for sure!
Tom Lown's reinterpretation of Take It Back slows things down and adds a deeper layer while still retaining that jazzy hook from the original. Syndrome's remix of What Do You Expect is a percussive deep house affair that takes a more melodic stance.
Some great reactions on this release:

I dig the lush deepness of Tom Lown\'s Remix and the percussive jazziness of the Syndrome Rework. I\'ll give them a try, thanks.
Jamie Le Vack (F*** House Music, 2's Company) -

Tom Lown's Remix is by far the best!

Jimmi Hendrik dropps some tight glitchy beats . The tunes have that infectious minimal groove thing going down . A sneaky sax riff braks up the vibe sending it down a sultry side of house..A deffint groover .. Take It Back is smooth as silk .. What Do You Expect is set for the dance floor bompty beats .. I be using these for sure in the up coming house shows on Volcano Radio. Sud Up are delivering quality beats .. fat bass lines with infectious grooves .. 5 star !!
