Oren Bi - Under Sleeve

If you're after more than just an EP full of club stompers, then this latest from Cork's ever-dependable Elevation Recordings should suit… this is deep house at its most cerebral and introspective.

That's not to say it's not it's all sofa-bound ethereal wispery… far from it. Both Under Sleeve (presented in three mixes) and bonus cut Need This Unlove have enough energy and drive about 'em to warrant floor play, for sure… it's just that crowd-pleasing drama and big hooks are eschewed in favour of a more slow-building, dreamy/druggy feel, while remixes from Nils Penner and Ron Deacon take the title track into even more experimental/leftfield pastures.

I dunno… words are failing me a bit on this one, to be honest! Suffice to say if you like your house music to be a little more challenging, then you need to check this one for yourself.

Out: This week

About: You can find Elevation on MySpace, Facebook and Soundcloud

PS And if anyone has any idea what the heavily-treated vocal is saying, do let me know. GF reckons it's "go home, the cat is burning", but I've got to say I'm not 100% convinced…
