Mic Newman – Sizzled Sally EP

Another sterling three-tracker, coming from that Sneak-ish school of deep house where neither disco nor techno is ever more than heartbeat away. The title track has pianos and 'burning' vocal snippets that give it a pleasingly old-skool ’90s flava, Elephantine is a deeper and more contemporary-sounding affair, and then 5 O'Clock is a real floor-teaser which starts as a simple locked-on, percussive groove, drops down into a relentlessly building wukka-wukking geetars and then throws the whole funk-fuelled cocktail right in your face in an energetic climax. It's the sort of tune you'd play to build energy and excitement right before your biggest tune of the night, if you know what I mean, Mr DJ.

Oh yeah, and if you must have facts and stuff, then Mic Newman is Australian, and this is OUT THIS WEEK.

About the label: This is on the excellent murmur, a label that's been so dependable for good solid grooves in the past couple of years, it's hard to believe they're only 13 releases old! If you're not up to speed with murmur I suggest you head to their website forthwith.
