Various – Underground Sound Of Swink Vol 2

Underground Sound Of Swink Vol 2 Swink MusicWe’re back in deep house land now with this rather excellent V/A EP from Irish label Swink Music.

DJ Nav’s Two Blocks From The Spot gets the ball rolling in very fine fashion, a proper Jersey-style deep, late-night garage jam with pads to die for, understated organs and a looped one-line diva vocal sample, as well as a lil’ subtle acid later on. Jackmaster K’s Desire has a similarly raw, Jersey-ish feel but is a much more uptempo affair, Rissa Garcia’s Time To Go Back is stripped n’ jackin’ 4am dark room workout and Terry Allen’s The Other Side is a dreamy, chord-y, sofa-surfin’ kinda thing, while Ugur Project’s Don’t Understand has a ruff-edged, Detroit house feel. X Gets The Crest then play us out with two tracks: All My Thoughts, which drops to a nu-disco/beach house tempo, and the lounge-y but upbeat Smack Yo Ass.

The first two tracks share top honours for me but there’s honestly not a duff cut in sight on this near-album-length EP. I’d buy it, if I were you.

Out: This week
