A few Bandcamp Fridays ago, I got a recommendation to buy Spring/Summer Dubs 2019, a collection from Manchester-based producer and DJ Anz. It's a two-sided tape of teflon-tough, dominating underground sounds orbiting around a central influence of UK garage. On October 15, Anz will share a new EP, appropriately titled After Hours. After sharing the twinkling 24-karat collaboration with George Riley "You Could Be," today Anz drops off another track called "Real Enough To Feel Good."
Soaked in afterglow but not lacking for energy, the new song is glazed with deep-house chords, razor-sharp synth stabs, and classic garage beats tying the whole thing together. ‘Real Enough To Feel Good’ was the first new track I made for All Hours," Anz said in a statement, "built as a direct continuation from ‘You Could Be’. With the 24 hour concept fully front of mind, I tried to make something sleek and bouncy for the evening with nods to Baltimore Club, and of course UK Garage - the genre I listen to every time I’m getting ready to go out."
