Terry Grant – Sound Principle EP

October 13, 2013 in Singles

Terry Grant Sound Principle EP Something DifferentNow officially two years old – so happy birthday to Jesus Pablo and co – Something Different explore slightly, er, different territory from usual on this two-track, four-mix EP from Terry Grant.

On the A, Life Without Principle is an epic floaty, Balearic thang driven by insistent shakers, lingering piano chords and occasional flutters of geetar, brought to a proper old-school climax by some hands-in-the-air ivories action, while the Kirby Remix is a slightly more full-on pass that tones down the White Isle-isms and adds squelchy rave bass and a long breakdown section. Over on the B, Sophie Loves Sound is another dreamy, drummy excursion sporting fat funk bass and some disembodied female laughter, while Harold Heath’s remix takes us into more traditional deep house pastures in a very late night kinda way.

A little less straight-up dancefloor bumpin’ than Something Different’s usual fare, then, but every bit as good.

Various – Something For You Vol 3

September 29, 2013 in Singles

Something For You Volume 3 Something DifferentMore fine deep n’ techy house grooves on this latest in Something Different’s series of V/A eps.

Evan Iff is up first with Minor Luck, which (in Justin Harris Remix form, at least) is a sumptuous female-vocalled affair sitting right on the deep house/garage borderline. Junior Gee’s Stop And Spin [Funkdamentalist Remix] is a techier, glitcher and drummier cut, while Matches gives us Get Loose [Terry Grant’s Couples Only Remix], a seriously chunky, funky deep house dancefloor stomper. Skeleton Army are up next with Version X [Pete Moss Remix], an atmospheric cut probably best suited to warm-up or post-club play, while bringing the EP to a close is WLF’s Triplete M [Leigh Clark Remix], a proper journey of a track that marries dreamy disco elements to no-nonsense beats and a seriously ass-shakin’ bottom end.

If pushed, it’s the latter track and Minor Luck that stand out, but only just – this is sterling stuff throughout, making this definitely one to check.
