Various - Drumpoems Verse 2 EP2

The second sampler EP for the Drumpoems Verse 2 album, which you may remember was TIWWD's compilation of 2009. In what seems like a slightly odd move, though, not all the tracks are actually on the album…

So: Hunee's You Took My Love and DC's Riot both still sound as good as they did on the album. But you also get Kawabata's ace deep houser Feelin' It, which the hype sheet compares not unreasonably to vintage Prescription material… and best of all you get Upside Down by Johannes Lehner, which is the real reason you should hunt down this vinyl immediately.

You might think covering a Diana Ross disco/boogie classic in a cold, Detroitian techno style is a bad idea, but that's cos you haven't heard it. Alternatively, you may remember Blake Baxter's One More Time, which did a similar trick with Let No Man Put Asunder. If you do, and if I tell you that this is every bit as good, you'll know you SO need this record.

Out: Yesterday, so I'm a bit more up-to-date than I was ten minutes ago. Phew.

About: This is of course on Drumpoet Community, and just serves to confirm their position as one of the very best labels in house music right now. Find out more by clicking here.
