Peter Brown - Come Together

Germany's Housesession may not be the most cool, hip and underground of labels, but they've got an ear for a big club tune, and Come Together is one of their best to date. I'd give the Tune Brothers mix a swerve unless you're of a 'funky electro house' mindset but the rest of the mixes are pretty palatable.

The Original and Dub are straight-up back-to-’89 piano house. Okay, so the vocal (from one Linda Newman) isn't the strongest you've ever heard, and yeah, it's all been done before (20 years ago, in fact)… but for hands-in-the-air fun and frolics in bigger rooms you could do a lot worse. Meanwhile, Alex Del Amo, Javi Ortiz & K-low provide another Vocal and Dub that are far more contemporary sounding, in a kind of post-minimal prog way. So four out of five ain't bad, is it?

Peter Brown, BTW, is an up-and-coming Spanish guy who's had stuff out on Pacha Recordings before, and is nothing to do with the Peter Brown of ’70s disco fame who did the original version of Do You Wanna Get Funky With Me, as covered by both Fierce Ruling Diva and My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult.

About the label: Another really quite all right dancefloor offering from Germany's Housesession crew. Visit their website to find out more about them.
