Label boss Nick Harris comes up with a (Christmas) cracker on this latest release from the mighty NRK Music… who, weirdly, I don't think have featured on here before, or at least not for a while.
In its original form, White Leather is a fusion of old and new, as today's tuffer, techier beats (but slightly slower tempo) combine with vintage Chi-town house sounds. Works a treat from where I'm standing. There's just the one remix on offer, from Crosstown Rebels/Bpitch Control fave Kiki: unsurprisingly this is more your straight-up techy mix, but it'll do the job on the right floors.
Meanwhile, you also get three mixes of Sunrise Over Volta. In its Original form, this is a mean and moody instrumental deep/tech-houser with a throbbing bottom end. Hector Murillo, who's had stuff out on labels like Desolat, Tsuba, 2020Vision and Mobilee, then delivers two remixes, cunningly entitled Hector Mix 1 and Hector Mix 2… both add a spoken vocal and emphasise the techier elements, taking us (almost) into deep/dub techno territory.
