Various - Deep House Sessions Vol 1 EP

A fine little sampler here from this US label who I think are a) based in Chicago and b) at least in some way affiliated to, if not run by, Alexander East. I could be wrong but that's what I'm guessing.

What we have are four cuts from the soulful end of the jazzy spectrum coming from the artists Castillo, Face, 3C and Jennifer Perryman in various combinations. If you dig the kind of grown-up, sophisticated soulful sounds of the likes of Stephanie Cooke, Ananda Project or Jody Watley when she gets her house on, you'll find nothing to grumble about with Free (presented here in a mix by Glenn Underground) or Love's Wine (a Demarkus Lewis mix excursion, this one), while the vocal-phobic can head instead for the excellent Dream State (Intensity of Sound's Smoking Jazzy House Version).

Overall it's one for lovers of traditional US deep/soulful house rather than the Berlin tech kiddies, for sure… but since when was there anything wrong with that?

Out: This week

About: See above – I don't know huge amounts about 3345 Music, though from the looks of their website they're certainly no newcomers to the game…
