Lee Pennington – Earthworm Dancing EP

January 16, 2014 in Singles

Lee Pennington Earthworm Dancing EP Endemic DigitalWell now… I did have several interesting bits n’ bobs to tell you about tonight, but it’s been a long, busy day and by the time I sit down to write this I’ve nearly run out of Thursday! Just quickly then, here we have a neat little two-tracker from Endemic regular Lee Pennington.

The title track takes a minute or two to really get going, but at around the 1.30 mark in comes the subtle little acid (sorry, acieeeeeed!) squiggles that are its main attraction… even if there are a full two acid-free minutes at the end during which a looped “you make me feel like dancing” vocal, put through a vocoder or talkbox effect of some kind, comes to the fore instead.

Flip it over and you’ll find Creeping Behind The Shovel, presented here in Inkfish Remix form. It’s another nicely understated little cut that’ll play on deep and tech house floors equally well, with a nice dreamy, garage-y feel to the teensy-tiny female vocal snips, but it’s the A-side that stands out for me.

Out: This week

About: I always say this, but you know where to find Endemic by now…

So many tunes, so little time 26

Sorry for the paucity of updates at the weekend, I was helping my girlfriend move house so when I wasn’t lugging huge boxes of utterly needless kitchenware up and down stairs I was mostly collapsed on a sofa. So before we get on with this week’s reviews here’s the rest of the goodies from last week…

On a tech-house tip Dekontrol‘s Now/Addicted on Detroit’s Incorrect Music, J&S Project vs Raffaele Rizzi‘s White Sands on Southpark and George Privatti‘s Lomato on Selected Records are all well worth checking, as is The Twister & West On 27th [Jerome Robins Mixes] on Primal Recordings, which sees a couple of Hooj Choons prog/trance faves from the late 90s given a 2012 tech-house makeover.

Moving into deeper territories, Ramon Tapia‘s Wonderland EP is the third fine release on his own Say What? label, Inkfish‘s Altar Server on Form-and Function brings some deep tech-soul, and there’s more soulfully-inclined deepness from Unrivaled Music in the form of the Black Sunset/Sylvie EP from Georgeous. Haldo feat Henri Kohn & Miss Ann-P serve up some glitzier house grooves with Rhythm on Conya DigitalJoe Morris gets down, discoid and sleazy with Yello Haze on 3am Recordings, while the third and final installment in the Love Is The Devil Remixes series from Blu Mar Ten on his own label is a very solid bet for deep, chilled, liquid-y D&B.

King Street offshoot Street King come strong with two different After Hours Ibiza 2012 EPs, one available on Beatport and the other on Traxsource. Between them there are 23 tracks so you can’t fault ’em on VFM! Expect various shades of deep/tech house and, yes, the usual high quality standards apply.

And finally a shout going out to my man Jesus Pablo… thanks for the kind words on Facebook, it’s very nice to be someone’s “favourite blogger”. But as you point out, I do pretty much review everything Something Different releases so for the (admittedly very fine) Something Different Remixes EP you’ll have to make do with this lil’ mention right here!
