Plaupez - Hood

Deep Class Records out of Barcelona has, this year, come seemingly out of nowhere to become one of my favourite labels. This new release from Plaupez doesn't do anything to disappoint in that respect, striking as it does a nice balance between the deep and the driving.

That is to say, Hood – which is OUT NOW, by the way – is deep enough for headz' satisfaction, but upbeat and energetic enough to work on non-specialist floors… which is about as much as you can ask from a track, I figure. With some nice Detroit-y synth sounds, solid 4/4s and snippeted-up vox galore, it's pretty much a textbook example of what's good in house music right now. It comes complete with a dubbier Cesar Coronado remix plus bonus cut Bur, which treads a similar path (and which reminds me a bit of the Derrick Carter mix of Blaze's My Beat), and I'd be perfectly happy to put my name to a DJ set that included any or all of 'em.

About: So yes, Deep Class. Based in Barcelona, run by Jimmy 'Fer' Ferrari, and pretty much a 100% safe bet when it comes to quality house music. Visit them on MySpace and HEAR Hood for yourself here.
