Mick Verma – Smooth Edges/Fonder

October 3, 2015 in Singles

Mick Verma Smooth Edges/Fonder Vision Collective RecordingsSome typically excellent deep house grooves here from Cork label Vision Collective Recordings, coming from label co-owner Mick Verma.

On the A, Smooth Edges comes the more soulful end of the deep house spectrum with its shufflin’ beats, lingering pads, some killer NJ organ chords and snips of soulful female vocal, the overall effect being not unakin to classic west coast deepness of the late 90s/early 00s. Great as Smooth Edges is, though, it’s pretty much the kinds of thing we’ve come to expect from VCR – more surprising is the flip’s Fonder, a more sprightly cut with a full Scissor Sisters-ish falsetto vocal (“I’m giving in, I’m getting out, I’m gonna live my life without you”).

Fonder has to take the gold just because it’s a bit of a departure for the label, but both tracks here are straight out of the top drawer.

Out: This week (on general release)
