Various - 43 Degrees & Cloudy

Well, the deep gems just seem to keep on coming this week… here's another quality offering, this time from new (this is their third release) Denver-based label 5 And Dime Recordings. As the eagle-eyed among you will have noticed, it's a V/A affair, the A's in question being Zach De Vincent, Tony Rodelli (previously of MUM fame) and F Stop. Between them, they turn in three quite different but still complimentary tracks.

De Vincent's Phase II is probably the most obviously floor-friendly of the three, a fairly traditional-sounding deep houser with a dreamy feel and a nice warm bottom end. The Way We Go from Rodelli is still driving enough for floor play but is perhaps best suited to warm-up or post-club sessions; that's by no means a slight, though, because the lush Rhodes chords on this track are to die for. And then finally there's It's Complicated from F Stop, a sparse, brooding affair with the influence of deep techno writ large.

If pushed I'd pick The Way We Go as the standout but I'd sooner not have to, because in all honesty all three tracks here are the business. Making this a label you definitely want to be keeping an eye on.

Out: This week

About: Rather than moving to Denver and stalking them from behind the mailbox across the street, you can keep an eye on 5 And Dime by visiting their website, Facebook or Soundcloud pages. Seriously, that's the way to go. Not the false moustache and binoculars, so much.

Oh yeah, and you can HEAR THIS on Soundcloud as well. And indeed, here it is…
