Do It Proper - Dubtronic

You never quite know what you're gonna get from Do It Proper, AKA US-dwelling Brit producer Lee Jarvis. Do It Proper tracks and mixes to cross TIWWD's radar to date have ranged from the deep to the techy to the discofied… and now Lee throws us another curveball with a slab taking its influences primarily from dub techno and, well, straight up dub.

Three mixes to choose from. The Original is a tad more jerky and experimental, making me think – just a little bit – of vintage sonic explorers like Gang Of Four (though you'd still want to file this generally under techno/tech-house). It's interesting stuff, but doing it more for me are the Tronic Dub from Daniel Allen, a smoker's delight in the finest Basic Channel tradition, and the far housier Deez Raw N Deep Mix from Demarkus Lewis, which ups the dancefloor ante considerably.

Like I said, you never quite what to expect from Mr Jarvis… but you can generally rely on it being quality stuff, and this is, no matter which mix you go for.

Out: This week

About: This comes on San Francisco-based Headset Recordings… here's their website, Facebook and Soundcloud.
