Tanner Ross - B-Side/4 U

If you like your house music very, very deep and bordering on the downtempo/experimental, then check for this new EP from Tanner Ross, whose CV includes releases on labels like Freerange, Dirty Bird and Culprit.

B-Side (which is the A-side, naturally) is a lo-slung groove that sashays along at a mere 117bpm, and as such would fit nicely into slo-mo, nu-disco or warm-up sets… though it'll stand pitching up to a house tempo as well.

4 U, meanwhile, features a vocal from Flo Night (such as it is, cos all it is is her saying "I make song for you" or something similar) and is in a similar slo-mo (120bpm this time) kinda vein, albeit with an 80s electrofunk/boogie b-line rather than the more Chi-town style bassline on B-Side. Rounding out the EP is a very minimalist Deniz Kurtel remix of 4 U, which takes AGES to get going and has lots of atmospheric beatless bits, but does rock along at a slightly more energetic 123bpm.

Out: This week

About: This is on Toronto house/techno stable No.19 Records, who were picked as a 'label to watch' on Beatportal and who can also be found on Facebook and Soundcloud.
