Kurtz – Scarlet Diva

February 6, 2013 in Singles

Kurtz Scarlet Diva NeorecordsA three-tracker here from another artist I can’t tell you a lot about, Kurtz, coming on Italian label Neorecords.

It’s the title track that’s the standout for me. Scarlet Diva is an uplifting, summery cut, driven by crisp percussion and a nagging synth riff and topped with insistently looping vocal snips. Sporting some lovely warm, jazzy chords and a subtle nod to French Kiss to boot, it’s credible enough for the underground floors, yet accessible enough that it could well reach out beyond the deep house ghetto.

Elsewhere, Before We Gone is a jazz-tinged workout while Escape The Worst flirts with proggier vibes. Both are playable for sure, but it’s all about the A for me here.

Out: This week
