Various - On The Corner Vol 1

Cortelyou Rd On The Corner Vol 1A brand new label straight outta Brooklyn makes its debut this four-track V/A EP.

The headline for many will be an appearance by Red Rack 'Em AKA Hot Coins, who serves up a slab of slo-mo deep house informed by disco in its use of brass and string sounds called Fellini, but elsewhere you also get rattling tech percussion crossing swords with classic house piano sounds on James Duncan's Feel The Sky, more slo-mo and slightly experimental vibes from Native Sound on Feel The Sky and, the best of the bunch for me, the funky-assed roll of Alex Agore's Pimp Stomp, which is like that bit in a ’70s NY cop film where the detective drives through the city streets late at night contemplating stuff.

All told, this is well worth checking if you like your slightly more leftfield vibes.

Out: This week

About: As stated, this comes on the brand spanking new Cortelyou Rd Recordings. Here's their very own blog, and let's hope there's plenty more to come.
