Playin’ 4 The City – Backfire

June 21, 2015 in Singles

Playin' 4 The City Backfire Plastik PeopleFrench deep house veteran Olivier Portal, AKA Playin’ 4 The City, serves up a three-track EP for Marc Cotterell’s Plastik People here.

Backfire was first released on Tropism Records in 2002, but it doesn’t sound nearly a decade and half old! Which I guess means its languid deep house grooves can safely be described as “timeless”. Backside, from the same 2002 EP, is a slightly more uptempo number with a soul/jazz-style female vocal and some lovely understated organ work, while completing the EP is brand new composition Minor Track, a summery, outdoors-y kinda cut with Latin elements.

It’s Backfire that takes the gold for me, though.
