Ellesse - Thought About It

Manchester's rising deep house star Ellesse is getting a lot of attention right now, and rightly so. Here's our boy's latest, and there's no sign of the quality standards slipping just yet!

Thought About It in its Original form is a big organ number that's sure to cause maximum grinnage on the dancefloor. There are also some Detroitian synth strings and Balearic pia-pia-pianos thrown in for good measure, but the more contemporary-sounding topline and vocal snips save it from being a mere 'back to the old school' offering. Quality stuff that proves there's life in those classic house sounds yet! On the B, Jordan Peak's Rogue Rework takes us a notch or seven deeper, with a shuffling, heads-down groove topped off with breathy, ethereal vocal stabs and some almost psychedelic synth-squiggles.

So: just the two tracks, yet whether you're rocking a 2am main floor or a druggy basement at 7am, Ellesse has it covered. Like I said, he's getting mucho props for a reason.

Out: This week

About: This is of course on Ellesse's own label Kaluki Musik, a spin-off from his Kaluki night at Sankeys. You can find Kaluki on MySpace or check out the podcasts here.
