Various - Now Departing: 5D004

Now let's go from deep to deeper, with another new offering from some of the most promising new kids on the house block, 5 And Dime Recordings. Once again, it's a V/A affair featuring F Stop, Zach De Vincent and Quin.

F Stop's Sense Of Perspective is like an object lesson in how to do deep n' dubby house music properly, so much so that this could equally appeal to lovers of deep techno or future garage. Ain't a whole lot going on but crisp, insistent beats, lashings of bass, dubbed-out sub-aquatic FX and some meandering Mr Fingers-esque synths… but if that isn't enough to satisfy then you might just be reading the wrong blog.

ZdV's Walking On Down is a more upbeat, more obviously dancefloor-oriented affair, with a PHAT n' funky b-line, disembodied and heavily effected 'aahs' by way of a vocal and, again, not a huge amount else! And finally Quin's Everything Is Alright works pounding kicks, Afro-esque but non-noodlesome hand percussion and another full-phat bassline, and tops it all off with some soaring, dare I say even euphoric synths.

The latter's the one that could find its way into the sets of a broader variety of jocks – it's just a good groove that's packed with sunshine and smiles – while the first two are more your 'connoisseurs only' tackle… but that's a good thing. Proper deepness for those that know.

Out: This week

About: Only four releases in and Denver-based 5 And Dime is already rapidly establishing itself as one of the hottest labels to watch… in my humble opinion of course. Here's their website, Soundcloud and Facebook, if you wanna know why!
