Deep Spelle – InHouse EP

January 16, 2016 in Singles

Deep Spelle InHouse EP DeepWit RecordingsWe kick off tonight in (very) deep house territory, as Deep Spelle serves up the latest in DeepWit’s artist-focused InHouse series of EPs.

Five tracks make up the EP: three originals, plus Deep Spelle’s remixes of two tracks by other artists. Taking the originals first, Wet Road (feat Gee) starts out with deep tribal drums and heads even deeper, with a LARGE but muted dub bassline, pads that go on forever and cut-up snatches of sweet fem vox. Everyboy’s Smiling is a little livelier and more overtly floor-friendly, albeit it’d still be one for warm-up or end-of-night play, but the standout among Deep Spelle’s own cuts is The Way You Treat Me feat Jon Juster, a delicate, haunting, garage-leaning affair with mournful sax and a barely-there “I love the way you kiss me” female vocal… look up ‘gorgeous’ in an encyclopaedia and you’ll find a picture of this record!

Moving on to the remixes, the Deep Spelle Back To The 80s Remix of Sumsuch’s Chop Shop is the paciest cut on the EP – though still a laidback, late-night affair by most labels’ standards – and features that familiar “In the 70s, melodies were ruling the world. In the 80s, grooves are ruling the world” spoken vocal, while finally the Jeff Fontaine & Deep Spelle Remix of Proj3kt Dharma’s Forgotten By The Universe is a chuggy lil’ deep houser with a dreamy, drifty feel overall and a man and woman babbling about space by way of a vocal.

The Way You Treat Me takes the gold, but truth be told there’s not a duff cut in sight – this is a superb EP from one of the best deep house labels in the game, so go seek!
