We just know you’re gonna love this guys work, the attention to detail is stunning and the passion for house music shines through, enjoy.
Get Up is a beautifully crafted slice of house filled with warm sounds and infectious vocal shots. Chunky beats lead the way as bright crispy hi hats get the rhythm moving. A deep and groovy bassline comes through to get the booty’s shakin’ on the floor while cool keys, a funky sax and hi strings create a textured groove. Perfectly executed house music for the late night sessions, a must have no doubt.
Do It offers up a spacious deep house groove leaving room for rich analogue basses and vocals with nice wide FX on the tail end. The track is powered by tight rhythmic beats and cool synths that lay the foundation for the almost scat-like vocals. Chord stabs generate a very cool classic theme giving the track a unique flavour that will most definitely become a firm favourite among many.
On And On takes us into the lower echelons of house with a sublime deep house joint that will be the perfect addition to those dark and sweaty late night sessions. Chunky kick drums and bright percussions lead the way as mesmeric chord pads draw us in. A wonderful deep rooted bassline delivers the groove to the hips forcing you to move while short, sharp synth hits create a staggered rhythm. The perfect track to work out your best dancefloor moves, this one is a must have for sure.
