O.O.R.S – Les Deux Villes EP

October 3, 2015 in Singles

O.O.R.S Les Deux Villes EP Lucky Sun RecordingsJust looked back and it’s been over a year since London’s O.O.R.S featured on this blog, which is way too long when you remember he makes records as good as this one!

Maule is up first, which starts out in the uber-deep n’ throbby zone then builds slowly for two minutes until some gloriously old skool stabby Balearic synths and tinkling ivories come sweeping in. Howard Sessions then supplies a remix which is fairly faithful to the original, but ups the ‘chunky, chuggy’ factor and adds a dramatic breakdown in the middle followed by some harder-edged bass synth action. Completing the package is Mechelen, a slightly funkier, more rolling deep house groover with yet more old skool keys, this time nodding respectfully to first-wave house outta Chicago.

Not picking a fave here – all three tracks are very, very playable indeed.

Out: This week

Pop Out And Play – Spray Crazy

August 30, 2015 in Singles

Pop Out And Play Spray Crazy EP Lucky Sun RecordingsFirst out on 2014 on the late lamented 5 And Dime, this deep house nugget from Simon Tappenden and Wil Russell, AKA Pop Out And Play, gets a re-release with new mixes courtesy of Tom Lown’s Lucky Sun Recordings.

The original’s quite a lively affair by deep house standards, with a shimmery, Balearic disco kinda feel, while Mr Lown’s own remix  is a deeper variation on the same theme. Harold Heath’s remix opens with old skool Chi-town drums and gradually works its way up into a deep, acid-tinged bubbler, but the standout for yours truly is Mark Slee’s Deep Feelings Dub – a warm, meandering slice of driftaway late-night deep house par excellence.

Out: This week
