Sek - Turning Back EP

Not sure that Ama Recordings have featured on here so far, so let's remedy that right away with a look at this four-track EP from Greek producer Sek.

There are four original tracks featured, of which I think the moody Morgan Is Tough, with its sampled Last Poets vocal and insistent low-end throb, is my fave. But all four operate in fairly similar musical territory, so rather than go into a detailed breakdown of the instrumentation, mood and BPM of each one, what I think is more interesting to say about this EP is that it bridges the gap perfectly between the more funky/organic deep house sound of labels like Salted or Bounce House, and the cooler, techier vibes coming out of Europe.

As such, it should appeal to all manner of deep house disc-spinners. Go seek.

Out: This week

About: Although this is the first time they've really registered on the TIWWD radar, I'm reliably informed that Ama Recordings is run by Ray Okpara, is based in Mannheim, Germany and is six releases old. Every day's a school day, eh? Anyway, if you want to know more, these Soundcloud, Facebook, MySpace and Resident Advisor links should keep you going for a while…
