Another one I'd have expected not to be particularly enamoured of, but for different reasons than the Nokken release below. See, Peter Presta's brand of hi-octane, stompy house has always been a bit too cheesy-shirts-off-in-a-gay-club for my liking, generally… but here he tones down the worst of the gorgonzola excesses and comes up with something altogether more likeable.
Don't get me wrong, this disco-tinged stomper is still one for the more mainstream floors rather than the ultra-cool underground joints, but as 'accessible' tackle goes it's a lot less off-puttingly cheesy than much similar material, and it's probably the best thing I've heard with Mr Presta's name on it to date.
For that reason alone, it deserves a mention today.
Out: This week
About: As ever, this is on Presta's own Applejaxx label (the link takes you to the Facebook page and you can find 'em on Soundcloud as well)
