Mirco Violi - Deadly City EP

This is just out and it's like an object lesson in how to do house music properly… weirdly though I haven't got much to say about it. Just four tracks of solid deep house grooves aimed fair and square at the dancefloor, but with enough musicality to be good for home listening as well.

According to the PR, Mirco Violi grew up on the likes of MAW, Sneak, Frankie Knuckles and Carl Craig, and it shows. Here he presents two tracks, the ace Deadly City with its slightly worrying “crackhouse!” shouts, and the puerescently-titled but still ace Major Boobage, which has some great sounds reminiscent of old Victor Simonelli/Tommy Musto/Joe-T records on labels like Sub-Urban and Nervous. Tommy Rujig then presents a slightly techier take on Deadly City while Sercan provides a deeper rework of Major Boobage. I'd happily play any one of the four, but Sercan's rub possibly edges it.

Out: This week

About: This is on new label Blackrose Records, who are based in Italy – more info at their MySpace.
