Kamo - Set The Routine

Manchester-based Aussie brothers Kamo featured on here precisely a month ago with the excellent Hulme EP on Losing Suki; now here they come again with another outstanding single, this time for Trendy Mullet.

As with the previous EP, there are hints of classic NY/NJ garage, of the deeper variety. The original of Set The Routine, for instance, is a twisted, jazzy affair that sounds like it could easily have come out on Kerri Chandler's Madhouse back in the day… great organ sounds, and is that a tiny vocal snip of Get Your Hands Off My Man I hear in there? Luke Solomon then supplies an even more twisted remix that sounds not 100 miles from his own work with the mighty Freaks, though TBH I'm still preferring the Original I think.

You also get two mixes of Shoot Your Shot. The original's a fat, laidback but nonetheless funky groover with a D-Train-esque kinda feel. This time though it's the remix, a slightly beefed-up and more Chicago-ish Manuel Sahagan rub that I'm feeling more.

Whichever mix you plump for though, if you like your house music on the more thoughtful and forward-leaning side, you won't go wrong here.

Out: This week
