Alex Alterskye - What You Got EP

Say hello boys and girls to a brand new label dedicated to "underground and deep house" – Hull-based Freche Fruchte. For their first release, they offer this EP from label boss Alex Alterskye.

In its Original form, What You Got itself is a distinctive-sounding houser that fuses tuff, techy beats with a LARGE funky bassline and snips of soulful male vocal, and should work well in big dark rooms. Tom Demac comes with a remix that to be honest I'm not quite so into, so we'll look instead at the other two originals. Static is a contemporary-sounding techy affair that'll do the do as long as you can handle the slightly annoying vocal sample that loops throughout, but the cream of the EP for me is Full Mood, an altogether groovier affair with a vintage NY/NJ feel about its sound palette, and some wicked sax parps to boot.

Out: This week

About: Freche Fruchte may be brand new but they've got their social media locked down all right – here's their website and here they are on Facebook, Soundcloud and Podomatic.
