Various – nUMusic: Deep House Vol 5

May 17, 2015 in Singles

nUMusic Deep House Vol 5 UM RecordsA four-track V/A EP from UM Records here… and the last in the series, as the nUMusic name is now being used for their promo system.

Our old friend Tim Andresen is up first with Falling Down, an instrumental affair that sits right on the deep/prog cusp and has a decidedly Man With The Red Face-ish main riff. Phasen follows with Lofty 14, an uber-deep late-night gem aimed at those ladies and gentlemen who are floating in inner space. Stannis’s The Source Of Happiness is a much more dancefloor-oriented deep houser with dancer-exhorting male vox (“I want you to feel your body, your mind and your soul… no fear, no worries, no control,” etc) and bowel-churning bass, and then lastly Juanma Lopi’s Marrakech is  another quite dreamy, drifty affair with, unsurprisingly, a vaguely casbah-y, opium den kinda feel.

As usual with UM the quality’s impeccable throughout but if pushed then Phasen and Stannis take top honours for me.
