Tommy Bones – Love & War EP

July 5, 2015 in Singles

Tommy Bones Love & War EP Strictly RhythmNYC veteran Tommy Bones serves up a three-tracker for the seemingly immortal Strictly Rhythm here.

Love & War itself is quite a dark house groove, built to power busy but more discerning house floors on through till dawn. Something of an E-Smoove’ish feel to this one, particularly in the off-kilter pianos… but it’s actually bonus cut Get Down (yes, another one – see below) that’s the standout for me. In its original form, Get Down tops classic NY-style house drums with a bouncy bass hook, female “up, down, up, down” vox and sax parps, as well as backing diva wails. It’s ‘trad-leaning’ for sure, yet sounds thoroughly contemporary at the same time – and much the same can be said for the bigger and even bouncier Remix, where the M1 comes out to play.
