Yapacc & Ricky Erre Love – Jetstream EP

November 7, 2015 in Singles

Yapacc & Ricky Erre Love Jetstream EP LucidflowA two-track, five-mix EP here from Lucidflow that should appeal to lovers of deep house, deep techno/minimal and prog in equal measure.

Jetstream itself, in its Original form, is either a very prog-leaning slice of deep techno or a very techy deep prog cut, depending on how you look at it. Sebastian Albrecht’s Fluffy Cloud Mix takes us into wonky, glitchy territory and is underpinned by stuttering electro drums, while Sousk’s Epic Encounter is aptly named and gets almost trance-y in parts.

It’s the ‘other’ track, Barletta, that’s floating my boat more though. In its Original form this is a nice chunky slab of deep, dubby techno in classic Lucidflow style, but the cherry on the cake is an absolutely superb remix from label bosses Klartraum that’s as close to straight-up deep house as anything I’ve heard from the label, I think.

Out: This week

Various – Dub Over Moscow EP

July 14, 2015 in Singles

Various Dub Over Moscow EP Elusive RecordsA definite ‘deep n’ dubby’ theme to tonight’s reviews line-up, starting with this three track V/A ep from London-based Elusive Records.

Andrey Burtaev is up first with Dub Over Moscow itself, a skanking midtempo dub-houser with “no problem!” reggae vox and strange, otherworldly synth sweeps. Information Ghetto’s Sibero follows, another dubbed-out deep house groove with enough energy for the floor but enough of a spacey feel for post-club chilling too, while Sebastian Albrecht’s slightly more tech house-y but still dub-inflected Guam plays us out.

The title track takes the gold for me but to be fair the other two aren’t far behind.

Out: Today
