Martijn - Party People EP

After our little jaunt into downtempo pop territory we're back on more familiar ground here, with this four-track EP from northeastern wunderkind on Martijn on his own Deep Edition Recordings. Oddly, the EP consists of three mixes of Easy Lady and just one of Party People itself.

Regular readers will know I'm a big fan of the Deep Edition sound, and so it is here, but it's worth pointing out that this is one of the techiest, most leftfield offerings from the label yet, compared to the more funky/soulful side of deep we know them best for. From the original and Qmusse mixes of Easy Lady, then, expect quirky, forward-leaning deepness, while the Marvin Zeyss Remix would be more readily filed under tech-house.

And then finally, Party People takes us on a more retro-inspired house tip, with a sparse, Chicago-esque sound palette, cowbells, a treated, druggy vocal à la Green Velvet's Flash and what sounds suspiciously like a snippet of Weekend.

It's Party People I'm feeling most but all told, another strong release from a fine label.

Out: This week on Beatport, then everywhere else from 5 December

About: You can find Deep Edition on Soundcloud and Facebook
