Tommy Bones – Arrival EP

April 24, 2016 in Singles

Tommy Bones Arrival EP Strictly RhythmGonna keep it nice n’ deep tonight after last night’s trek through stompier pastures, starting with this two-tracker from the mighty Strictly Rhythm.

It’s the B-side you’ll be wanting to head for. Not that the A’s Aisha isn’t a perfectly playable lil’ slice of peaktime house music: it is. It’s heavily indebted to French Kiss, admittedly, but the jaunty piano chords save it from being a mere pastiche. But Aisha pales in comparison next to T’s Jazzy Joint on the B, a far deeper jam that does very much what it says on the tin. Crucially, though, its fluttering synth-flutes, tinkling vibes and scatty vocal snips are underpinned by rock-solid 4/4s and a satisfying full-fat bassline.

No chin-stroking noodlefest this one, just 5:57 of sumptuous house music to lose yourself in. Which I suggest you do at your earliest opportunity.

Out: This week
