Johann Mentz - Lost Soul EP

A nice little deep house four-tracker here from Unrivaled Music, courtesy of Australian newcomer (as far as I can tell) Johann Mentz.

High kicks things off, a midtempo affair that's surprisingly busy but pretty mellow all the same, with a soulful "can't come down" male vocal hook. Then you have Old Tricks, which is slightly more uptempo and, to these ears, slightly more satisfying thanks to the use of some old school-sounding chords/stabs.

Next up is Sine Qua Non, another track that's quite old school in its sound palette, reminding me of classic Jersey productions from the likes of Victor Simonelli or Tommy Musto, albeit at a faster tempo. And then finally we get to Lost Soul itself, a dreamy but still relatively upbeat number equally suitable for deeper floors or those post-club moments…

All told, an impressive EP from a new producer, so show some love and let's hope we hear more soon.

Out: This week
