Tony S – Gotta Have It

July 25, 2014 in Singles

Tony S Gotta Have It La Pitti RecordsSomething of a ‘familiar faces’ theme to tonight’s reviews line-up, starting with this latest from Tony S, who’s featured on this blog many times before. Here, though, he’s doing the do for a brand new label, Italy’s La Pitti Records.

In its Original form, Gotta Have It is a lively, funk-fuelled deep houser with garage-y chopped fem vox and bags of space in the production at the start, adding layers of hand percussion, twittery bird noises and such as it goes on. The dEEPoint Remix tones down the garage-y swing in favor of a more dreamy, heads-down vibe, while bonus cut Solstice Sun is a blissed-out late-night drifter par excellence.

Classy stuff as ever from Mr Stevenson.

Various – DeepWit Spring Moods

March 28, 2012 in Singles

A five-artist, five-track sampler from Denmark’s excellent DeepWit here, showcasing the label’s trademark subterranean house sound perfectly.

The artists in question are Asona, Jonny Bee, Ejeca, Ev Darko and dEEPoint. I’m not gonna go into every track individually but suffice to say that if you dig 4/4 beats that are thumping yet unhurried… atmospheric synth washes… warm, phat yet understated b-lines… nods towards classic Chi-town deepness à la Larry Heard… and the odd garage-y vocal snippet… then you’re going to be pretty much in heaven here.

Essential stuff.
