The EP kicks off with Shout Out, which uses a reggae/ragga-style vocal, something I've not heard on a deep house track for quite some time. It comes in two mixes, Underground and Club, the latter being a tad more percussive and probably workable for a broader range of jocks, though it's the former that does it for me. Then we get Yah Better Hurry, something of a curveball from the SBK's cos it's a breakbeat-driven number with a hip-hop vocal (albeit from the funkiest and least in-yer-face reaches of the breaks spectrum imaginable), before the EP comes to a close with Tony Montana, a deep house dancefloor romp with a discotheque sheen and samples from… well, I'm guessing you can imagine what film it samples. That's right. Holiday On The Buses*.
About the label: This is the 15th release on Bounce House Recordings, which is the SBKs' own label, and as reliable a source of rumpshakin' deep house as you'll find anywhere in Christendom right now, even if their sleeves are a bit rubbish. Show some love, peeps.
* I seem recently to have developed a morbid fascination with On The Buses. I always used to loathe it with a vengeance, but lately I can't help watching it. Even though it singularly fails to make me laugh, which in the normal run of things would be one of my foremost requirements from a 'comedy'. The whole situation's a bit odd, to be honest.
