“Three unpretentious party-starters,” is how the hype sheet describes this EP, and I’d go along with that… except to say that such a description could be taken to mean something slightly silly n’ cheesy… and this EP isn’t.
Rather, what you get are two slabs of straight-up house music that could work on a variety of floors, from the underground deep house joints to the bigger rooms. Movin’ On samples (or uses the same sample as? I’m not quite sure) K.E.L.S.E.Y’s Boy (a Marc Kinchen classic on Strictly from way back in the day, if ya didn't know), and is probably my favourite for that reason alone, while Body Holly works a similar vibe; either could have come straight outta early-to-mid-’90s NYC. Which is a good thing.
I’m a bit less keen personally on third track Mr Freeze, which has a nagging little high-pitched riff that sounds suspiciously like electro-house to me. But two stonkin’ house cuts out of three ain’t bad, and what with this and Jet Project’s recent U Know, which yours truly made Tune Of The Month in iDJ a couple of issues back, Snatch! are on something of a roll right now.
Out: This week
About: Snatch! is owned/run by Riva Starr, who much like this EP can do some cracking house tunes when he doesn’t veer off into kiddy-electro nonsense. Find out more from the Snatch! website.
