S-Man feat Mr V – 6AM

January 31, 2016 in Singles

S-Man ft Mr V 6AM Undr The RadrIn which Mr V waxes poetic over tuff house beats supplied by the legendary Mr Sanchez, on his own Undr The Radr label.

Six mixes to choose from. The original is the kind of ‘big dark room’ house music that Rog does better than almost anyone, propelled by a sinuous bassline and tuff-but-not-stoopid 4/4s, with some brain-frying rising synths thrown in for good measure. But it’s the lyric that’s most striking… at first you think he’s talking about some girl, but eventually you realise that 6AM is really a love song to house music itself.

Mixwise, the original’s accompanied by a matching Dub, prolific Romanian tech-house hero Horatio (try saying that at 6am!) supplies a remix and dub for the relevant floors, Dario D’Attis takes us down slightly darker, more driving pass and finally there’s an acapella for the creative jocks.

Roland Nights – Til The Morning

June 2, 2013 in Singles

Roland Nights Til The Morning Lost My DogSome awesome garage-y goodness for you here courtesy of Roland Nights and Lost My Dog.

Til The Morning itself is a deep Jersey organ jam with a soul-drenched male vocal in its original form; Mr V then supplies a Main Mix that opts for more driving percussion, (largely) drops the organs and adds some killer jazzual sax, as well as an Instrumental. Elsewhere on the EP, Vision is another garage gem working sparse beats, Rhodes and sweet fem vocal cut-ups, while Breezin’ gets the organ out again and gets seriously down and dirty on yo’ ass in a 4am kinda way.

‘Till’ should have two Ls. Which I only mention because that, and the fact that there’s a picture of a bearded man in a vest on the cover which is never required, are about the only things about this EP that aren’t freaking PERFECT. Go seek.
