DJ Simi - Dream It EP

Not sure when this is out cos they helpfully haven't included a release date, but it's gonna have to get a review cos this is, to me, the best thing to come out of the Yoshitoshi stable for years. Generally, most of Yoshitoshi's output has been a bit too… either techy, or proggy, or just head's down boys-own drum tracks, for me. When they put out actual proper house music, though, they do it like few can – see, for instance, That's Why I'm Here by Li'Isha Project from back in 1999, an all-time personal fave. And here, they're most definitely back in that quality house saddle.

Three tracks, with the title track and its old skool-sounding "dre-eeam it" vocal hook my fave, but the slightly tuffer Dagobah and (particularly) Here We Go also well worth checking.

Out: Now? Christmas? Three weeks ago? Who can say. Baffles me when labels don't supply the relevant info…

**UPDATE: HAD AN EMAIL FROM YOSHITOSHI HQ TODAY, THE DREAM IT EP IS OUT ON SEPT 14. AM ALSO INFORMED A REMIX PACKAGE IS TO FOLLOW IN OCTOBER SO WATCH THIS SPACE...

About: DJ Simi hails from Naples, Italy and has had releases on the likes of Toolroom, Sci+Tec and CR2. It says here. Yoshitoshi's website (well, online shop) can be found here.
