One of two bits I got sent from Artizan this month – there’s an excellent Poussez single forthcoming as well but that’s not out till April. For now, there’s this.
“This” being a three-tracker of (almost) instrumental house music in various flavas. The original of Yes Weekend is uptempo deep house with a funky/disco kinda feel, the WC10 Remix isn’t hugely different but with more of a proggy/techy kinda vibe, and then there’s bonus cut Who Knows, which is eight and a half minutes of driving deep, techy prog that is remarkably similar in sound to classics like Plastic Dreams and The Man WIth The Red Face. But then since when was that a bad thing?
Three solid cuts then. If forced to pick, then for me it’s between the original of Yes Weekend for da funk, or Who Knows, which is derivative but which will do its job for sure.
