Jan Hendez & Superlate – My Feelin'/Out Of Africa

An unusual release here from France's Way Of House… as we'll see in just a sec.

It's a four-track affair. First up is My Feelin', a slab of uber-deep late-night house that's almost amniotically warm and enveloping in its original form, and that comes accompanied by a Matt Star Remix that beefs up the beats for dancefloor play, though only in the most specialist of clubs. Next, Out Of Afrika is slightly more uptempo beats-wise, but the weird, disembodied vocal samples and slightly menacing air mean it's still probably one more for afterhours/post-club/backroom play.

And then we get to the 'unusual' part, cos Track 4 is a mash-up of the two, again from Matt Star… presumably for if you can't decide which you like best and only have time to play one tune!

I'm not sure I've ever had a record that did that before, and WOH are to be applauded for doing things differently… but as regards picking a favourite mix, it's the original of My Feelin' all the way for me.

Out: This week

About: Way Of House, or WOH Lab if you prefer – I'm not really certain what the official name is – is based in Nimes in France, and run by Greg Delon, Bastion Grine and Teka. You can find 'em on Facebook, on Soundcloud and at their own website.
