This is a funky little number from Big Bait Records‘ Peter Clamat that packs more than enough energy to get those limbs moving for the dance floor.
We stumbled across FYIChris’ (rather modest) Soundcloud page yesterday and promptly discovered it’s full of some really nice tracks.
We know pretty much nowt about the guy apart from the fact he’s based in London and seems to have editing down to a T. We’re suckers for one particular track, No Hurry, which is an absolute groove, an analysis clearly shared by a fair few other listeners who’ve combined forces to leave a flurry of positive comments.
We’ve long admired Alex Blaxx as a devilishly talented producer but it’s been a good year and half since we featured any of his material here, the last being his 2013 EP on Buzzin’ Fly Records, The Evening News. Having quietly gone about his business since then, with a steady trickle of releases on top-notch labels like Sccucci Manucci, Blaxx has coughed up a quite exquisite number on Steve Bug’s Dessous Recordings. Not bad going, eh?
Originally hailing from one electronic music melting pot, Cape Town, and now based in another, Manchester, Blaxx has got house music pedigree running through his veins. It’s no surprise then that this new EP exhibits a raw concoction of classic house elements, our favourite track being All The Difference, a smooth, rolling number with a good slab of sleaze and plenty of groove, the perfect track for getting stuck into the long evenings of summer with…
Scenesters may coil with snobbish disgust at the thought of a nineties-sounding house record in 2014. After all, wasn’t all that old-skool stuff done and dusted with last year?
Well, if you’re not a complete knob, you’ll know that such analysis is just plain silly; tracks that look back on yonder years are – if executed well – often irresistible. They always will be. As loyal house heads here, nothing quite tickles the taste buds like a bouncey set of chords, a soulful vocal and a set of pumping synths. And that’s exactly what Mike Lee has gone for on 12records‘ Volume 3, a four track EP (including a scorcher from Twilo) set to be released next month. This one is a real floor-smasher and we’d love to hear it somewhere on a sunny terrace in the coming months.
