Yo I've been pretty elated about our friend Partner Music lately. He's gained some well deserved momentum for his productions including a feature last week on Bolting Bits for his upcoming record: High Praise Edits Vol. 2, an off shoot of XVI Records that it's founder Books started last fall. You can peep Patu here and head over to Soundcloud for this freeness while you're at it. Along with that ya boy got blessed once again with one of those "guess what we found buried deep in our warehouse" moments from Juno. Pusic Records out of Austria has always been consistent in putting out quality deep house and deven helping get some careers of great producers off the ground. Their seventh release wiggled it's way into my cart and was snatched quick for those times I'm ready for a visit to some of the greatness 2016 brought. Peace y'all!
Starting things off with this ep of cook-out tops-off jams from VHOOR. These Brazilian tapppers will get you going in sun's glow for sure! It's nice to be fluffy like that, but i'm strongly digging the dark an rough right now. In that vane, check out the 'Our Mates' VA Ep from Real Gang Records. Ravey breaks have made a strong comeback recently, and I just adore to hear them juxtaposed with soulful keys and vocals, like on Hunky Dory! Patterns Of London are bringing you some elastic club-friendly business with their 'Patterns4 EP', my fav would be 'V.I.C.A.R.I.' by I C, but each of the tracks are very special! Alright, you get no more, you've been bad!
I've been busy re-educating myself on Chicago house history recently, in part due to the amazing two part series, I Was There When House Took Over The World. The section on the origins of acid house and Ron Hardy's role in it was especially inspiring, but ya gotta check the whole thing out over here, and oh don't forget that Marshall Jefferson really did do that. Speaking of forward thinking production, y'all know I wholly support it, but sometimes i just need a two piece underground classic combo, which NY based James Duncan served up just right on his new Innermoods label. Pick up the first volume here. Endin' out here with a new one from Lagaffe Tales, the Icelandic deep house label that JPB thankfully put me onto a little while back. Intr0beatz' joins the roster with a four track EP full of some groovy, disco inspired beats and even some bits of jazz on that 'Desco' cut, peep it right here. Till next week friendos!
