Smiley Fingers' speciality is deep, groovy tech-house with the emphasis firmly on the house side of the equation (in fact 'techy house' rather than 'tech-house' might be a better description, if you can appreciate the subtle difference). Hence, both Kristel and Jasmine represent the kind of tech-house that'd be as much at home at an East Midlands free party as it would in a red-lit basement in Berlin. Both work female vocal snippets; Jasmine is more your rolling kinda groove while Kristel chops up the vox to give it an almost MK/Todd Edwards feel.
A couple of months back, I reviewed Smiley Fingers' first-birthday label comp We Are Smiley in iDJ, describing it as "the sound of house music in 2010/2011 on a plate". This latest from Sanders does nothing to undermine that whatsoever. Top stuff.
Out: This week
About: Here's the Smiley Fingers website – from there you can find 'em on Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter etc. I'd post individual links to all of 'em, but it'd take ages and I think my bath is nearly ready.
