Barrytone - Smokin' Tunes

A new producer makes his debut on California's Pro-Tez Records.

The A-side here, Smokin' Tunes itself, takes a little while to get going, kicking off with three and a half minutes of a rolling bassline, skippy percussion and that's about it. But persevere, cos then everything goes seriously crazy-assed jazzual, with some quirky 'vocal' samples - all right, basically the sound of someone having a massive toke – thrown in for good measure. I'm not really explaining it very well, but it's ace, basically. Oh yeah, and there's some trumpet as well. Is it just me or is the trumpet the new sax?

On the B, meanwhile, lies Captain Kook, another quality piece of quirkified deep house, this time doing the cha-cha-cha and bumping behinds with your Auntie Gladys on the dancefloor. One for putting a smile on people's faces.

Out: This week

About: This is on Pro-Tez, who are based in California as stated and can be found here. But for European distribution it's got the seal of approval from the mighty Kompakt.
