Various - New Breed Of Deep House

The standout for me of several King Street releases this week, this five-track EP on Nite Grooves does what it says on the tin and showcases some new talents in deep house music. What's not to love?

Vozmediano's Un Cafe S'Il Vous Plait gets the EP underway in excellent style, being an uptempo jazzual roller that comes on like St Germain on FAR too much of the aforesaid coffee. Nice. Up next, Whim-ee's I Will Tell You is almost at the other end of the spectrum, a very deep, languid and sensuous affair with breathy spoken vox. Masahiro Suzuki's Port Elizabeth is a dark, driving dancefloor cut with Afro-influenced drums and a proggy feel, while Synthaime's Ugly Tikita is a ker-razy synth wig-out that draws heavily on European techno and is almost a bit much for me, but then redeems itself with some great tactical use of Hammond (?) sounds to counterbalance its ear-piercing antics. And then finally there's Korova & Soundsystem's Harmonica, which is another driving dancefloor workout featuring the eponymous instrument rather heavily.

Nothing tops Vozmediano's offering for me but still, overall this is a nicely varied EP featuring a host of new artists, so DJs of many persuasions should find something to play here.

Out: This week

About: Nite Grooves has always been King Street's outlet for the trackier shiznit… but you knew that. So here's their website and we're done.
