Tom Luka – Straight Up

September 26, 2015 in Singles

Tom Luka Straight Up MVMTAnother single-track release here, and more tuff, no-nonsense house beats.

In this case, said beats are lovingly crafted by Brighton-based producer (and Horizon Recordings boss) Tom Luka, and come accompanied by a chunky walking bassline, and topped with some lovely hip-swayin’ garage keys and male vocal snips. The end result is a very solid cut that should move any house/garage floor worthy of the name…

About: This comes not on Horizon Recordings but on Mark Lawrence’s MVMT label, who you can find on Soundcloud and Facebook. This is MVMT’s 13th release.

Tom Luka – Hustle EP

June 27, 2015 in Singles

Tom Luka Hustle EP Horizon RecordingsBrighton’s Tom Luka serves up some fine house music on this three-tracker for his own (well, his co-own, anyway) Horizon Recordings label.

Up first is Dead Or Alive, which sits right on the deep/tech cusp and sports warping synth/organ sounds, cowbells a-gogo and a spoken vocal featuring some producer type talking about the health of “this music” (whatever music that may be). Colour, which follows, is a more straight-up deep houser with a blissed-out, Balearic kinda feel, and then finally we come to the title track Hustle, a more soulful affair with an excellent jazzy vocal from Gemma Jayne and some great piano chords/stabs.

Dead Or Alive takes the gold for me, but it’s also good to hear a range of styles represented on one EP.
