James Benedict – B’s Melody EP

June 18, 2015 in Singles

James Benedict B's Melody House Trip RecordingsWe move into deeper house territory now with this two-track, four-mix EP from James Bendedict.

B’s Melody, in its original form, is a garage-leaning deep houser with skippy beats, chopped-up male vox and whooshy synth/organ sounds. Angel Rize’s NY Mix of the same rides tuffer, more straight-up 4/4s but retains the garage feel via the addition of some raw-sounding piano. The sultry and quite slow-moving W.N Street, on the other hand, is in its original form a bleepier, shape-throwing affair that looks to vintage Chicago deepness for inspiration, while Liam Dunning supplies a slightly tuffer, more upbeat remix that again gets busy with the piano sprinkles.

A strong package, with the Angel Rize rub of B’s Melody my pick of a fine crop.

Out: This week on Traxsource, on general release from 29 June
