Spennu – Deep It Right EP

March 15, 2014 in Singles

Spennu Deep It Right EP Haute MusiqueAnother one that’s been on Beatport for a couple of weeks but is only just getting a full release is this two-track, five-mix EP from Spennu, AKA Sezer Uysal.

The title track in its Original form is a classic-style deep house dancefloor groover, with quite busy drums, a fat n’ funky b-line, jaunty piano chords and a sampled, spoken inspirational vocal. Greenfish’s remix is sparser and more stripped-down, while the Kirby remix (my pick of a fine bunch) looks to vintage New Jersey for inspiration. I Could Not, meanwhile, is a more contemporary-style, bassy deep houser which is then given a rather lovely late-night makeover by Portofino Sunrise.

With mixes to suit deep house DJs of a range of micro-persuasions, this is one you’d be a fool not to check. Do you hear me? A fool.

Out: This week (see above)

Terry Grant – Sound Principle EP

October 13, 2013 in Singles

Terry Grant Sound Principle EP Something DifferentNow officially two years old – so happy birthday to Jesus Pablo and co – Something Different explore slightly, er, different territory from usual on this two-track, four-mix EP from Terry Grant.

On the A, Life Without Principle is an epic floaty, Balearic thang driven by insistent shakers, lingering piano chords and occasional flutters of geetar, brought to a proper old-school climax by some hands-in-the-air ivories action, while the Kirby Remix is a slightly more full-on pass that tones down the White Isle-isms and adds squelchy rave bass and a long breakdown section. Over on the B, Sophie Loves Sound is another dreamy, drummy excursion sporting fat funk bass and some disembodied female laughter, while Harold Heath’s remix takes us into more traditional deep house pastures in a very late night kinda way.

A little less straight-up dancefloor bumpin’ than Something Different’s usual fare, then, but every bit as good.

Out: This week
