Outstrip – These Days EP

Outstrip – These Days EP

Slightly more contemporary-style deep house bizniss now courtesy of Fabio Gianelli’s District Raw Recordings. Outstrip are a duo that hail from Ukraine and they serve up three originals here. These Days itself is up first, quite a bassy, chuggy number with nods to vintage Chi-town both in the drum sounds […]

MOTSA – Time

MOTSA – Time

We’re definitely on a ‘now’ tip with this five-track EP from Southern Fried Records. I’ll be honest, Clocks, with its sweet, London Grammar-like vocal from MIMU and shuffling, post-UK funky beats, is a bit too ‘hipster house’ for these ears, in either Radio or Extended Mix forms. Not to worry […]

Various – ChiQago

Various – ChiQago

With MOTSA having dragged us into experimental, beats-y territory, that’s where we’ll finish tonight with a look at this truly out-there collection from Ayush Sharma’s Faint Frequency label. Opener Intro is an atmospheric, ambient piece with train/train station sounds, the very gentlest of piano chords, and lilting jazz sax sounding like […]

TwelveBitMusic – First Flight EP

TwelveBitMusic – First Flight EP

An EP here from Will Sumsuch’s fledgling Colour And Pitch label that’ll delight those who like their deep house on the melodic side. Three tracks to choose from. Don’t Use Me is up first, a sunny, almost Balearic-leaning affair with warm, muted 4/4s and some great lounge-y, chorus’d female snippets […]

Nicco (ND) – Wawe Girls/Flower Minds

Nicco (ND) – Wawe Girls/Flower Minds

More melodic, instrumental deep house grooves on this two-track EP from a label that I don’t think have featured on TIWWD before, London’s Made With Love. Then again it is only their second release. Wawe Girls is up first, an unhurried, pulsating beast that’s centred around a pleasingly soft-edged main […]

Marsupials & Marcus Raute – Everything Crashes EP

Marsupials & Marcus Raute – Everything Crashes EP

To end with tonight we have this excellent two-track, four-mix EP from Portugal’s Colour In Music. Everything is up first, which in its Original form tops lingering chords and brisk, crisp beats with a slightly manic-sounding looped “everything” vocal, the overall effect sitting somewhere between NJ garage and Detroitian house […]

Andy Compton – African King

Andy Compton – African King

Although we only met face-to-face for the first time a couple of years ago, I’ve known Andy Compton via email and phone calls and such for well over a decade, right back to the days of the early Rurals albums. And we’ve got a lot in common: we’re of roughly […]

Various/Kevin McKay – Glasgow Underground 97/07

Various/Kevin McKay – Glasgow Underground 97/07

The word here is ‘wow’. All other house imprints take note: this is how you do a label retrospective! Kevin McKay’s Glasgow Underground made a very welcome return to the house scene back in 2011 – I interviewed him about it for iDJ at the time – but before that, the label had […]

BG Baarregaard – Partyvenskenes Dans

BG Baarregaard – Partyvenskenes Dans

We kick off in mirrorball mode tonight with this latest offering from Paper Disco, which comes from Reykjavik-born but Oslo-dwelling producer BG Baarregaard. The title track is a fairly up and bouncy nu-disco number with a strong Italo influence… “resonance and space with a hint of Inspector Norse” is what […]
