Southeastern - P2000

Based in Odense, Denmark, Deso Records are just a year old and 20 or so releases deep, but in that time they've already carved themselves an enviable reputation among the deep/tech house cognoscenti. This latest will nothing to tarnish that reputation whatsoever.

P2000 comes in just Original and Lerager's Lost Tongue Remix forms. The former is deep, unhurried and uncluttered, with a classic Chi-town bassline and just enough of a yearning female vocal to add some human warmth to what is a truly first-rate slice of melancholic machine soul. Meanwhile on the B, Denmark's Lerager beefs up the beats somewhat and transforms the track into a jackin' small-hours cut built with basements, red lights and feelings in mind.

Make no mistake, this is absolutely top-drawer tackle – check it out as soon as you get the chance.

Out: Last week, but I only got it yesterday and it was too good to ignore.

About: Find Deso at their own website, or on MySpace and Soundcloud. No, really, do – if I had to pick a label that's really pricked up my ears in 2011, this'd be the one.
