Various – Back To The Deep EP

March 31, 2013 in Singles

Back To The Deep EP Xoom RecordingsNew label alert! Xoom Recordings is a new deep house imprint from the Emerald Isle, and this V/A ep is just their second release…

LP’s My Lady combines a soulfully-inclined female vocal with some slightly too-hectic-for-me percussion but also a squelchy, Chi Town-ish bassline. I’m preferring When The Beat Drops personally, though, which also comes from LP and is a deep, acidic groover with snatches of poetic female vocal. Elsewhere, Florian Muller’s Solar is an instrumental cut that starts out a lil’ bit Balearic and ends up a lil’ bit crazy cosmic freeform, while Jemaho’s Lift Me Up is a deep, soulful and tribal-tinged workout that wouldn’t have sounded out of place at Body & Soul back in the day.

It’s definitely When The Beat Drops that works best for me here, but it’s always good to hear from new artists and new labels so do check this one for yourself and make your own mind up!

Out: This week
