Bensonhurst intros with a pounding kick drum alongside subtle hats and a soft melodic key. A sharp trumpet cuts through the deeper element giving us a taste of what’s to come. Shuffling hi hats deliver a smooth rhythm as various instruments make their mark on the groove. Jazzy, loungy, funky and groovy is what we get thanks to the myriad of sounds that work off that solid beat and beautiful bassline. Excellent stuff that will not disappoint.
Fellow boasts a punchy kick drum on the intro which is soon joined by slicing hi hats and subtle percussions which combine to deliver a cool rhythmic flow.

A solid track that will give any deep house set a boost, a must have no doubt.
