Nicc Johnson & Beatmaster G - Tell Me Something EP

A couple of weeks back I told you about the reorganisation over at Seamless Recordings, whereby the label's output is now split between the Seamless Soul, Seamless Deep and Seamless Traxx imprints. Then, we were discussing the first Seamless Soul release, from Hector Jennings; now here's the debut outing from Seamless Deep.

The EP comes with two mixes a-piece of Tell Me Something and What Ya Gonna Do. The former is about as party-hearty and 'Beefa-ish as deep house can get in its original form; better to these ears though is the pared-back refix from Aki Bergen, who strips the track down to its vocal and piano essentials, then underpins with an ominous, brooding bassline.

On the B, What Ya Gonna Do is a deeper house cut with one of those 'old jazzman talking' vocals, but again it's on the remix that it really comes to life, as Le Vinyl gives the track a skippier feel reminiscent of the kind of wonky, off-kilter garage-y bizniss the French have been turning out on the quiet since the FNAC days.

It's definitely the remixes that are doing it more for me here, but you really ought to check it for yourself…

Out: This week

About: Keep up with all things Seamless here
