Ritz kicks off his 2020 the way he left 2019, by delivering only the finest quality deep house cuts for our listening pleasure. The past year has been a huge one for him, a plethora of releases, including the very well received album Meditation which, moved into the physical world with a CD and a vinyl sampler. We’ve no doubt that this year will be an even bigger one for him. To get us in the mood, we have his latest effort titled Edinburgh 1998.
Edinburgh 1998 is a superbly constructed deep house mover. Solid, thumping kicks and spritely, slicing hats join a rhythmic percussion that sets the track up nicely. Cool vocals add that club flavour before a dance inducing analogue bassline takes full control for the ultimate dancefloor experience. Groovy piano stabs send out a a classic vibe, combining beautifully with the tasty groove. A stomper for the movers, not to be missed.
5 Minutes intros with a pacey kick and hat pattern alongside rhythmic percussions. A warm pad fades up along with cool descending notes. A deep and powerful sub level bass shores up the low end, giving the bass bins a bit of work to do. Soft melodies come through, contrasting with the deeper elements and making this a definite must have.
Everybody’s Getting High delivers a solid groove made up of sporadic percussions and a tight drum foundation. The track carries a classic garage vibe with drums and fading chord pads being the catalyst. Brighter, more intense pads swirl overhead as a cool spoken vocal adds a narrative to the groove. A trippy number with a strong floor appeal.
