Angel Rize – My Cedonia

July 19, 2015 in Singles

Angel Rize My Cedonia Delve Deeper RecordingsWe stay in deep house territory with this latest from Sheffield’s Delve Deeper Recordings.

In its Original form, My Cedonia is quite a lively, summery affair by deep house standards, with a vague hint of prog in its swirling synths and surging, chugging rhythm. Live house/techno don Saytek then surprises with a remix that starts out all floaty and Balearic then, four minutes in, drops some bad bwoy speed garage bass rumble. Completing the set is a remix from K-Bana that loses most of the swirly, proggy, Balearic elements, opting instead for crisp, no-nonsense beats, a staccato bassline, distorted vocal snips and, as the track progresses, some rave-y synths that bring Hurt You So to mind. Or at least they do to my mind.

All good, but the gold has to go to Saytek here.

Out: This week

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
