Miguel Puente - What You Do EP

A three-tracker here from Mexican producer Miguel Puente, who these days is a DJ and promoter in Barcelona, on the currently hotly-tipped No 19.

What You Do itself opens the package, a track that plays homage to classic Chi-town house in its sound palette, but that throws in some Italo synths as well and comes topped off with a very European-sounding female vocal. Next up, Save Each Other is another track that uses retro Italo/nu-disco synths but this time pairs them with more contemporary tech-house beats n' bass, and more yearnsome, soul-inflected vox. And then finally, It's Been So Long brings the Italo/electro influences even more to the fore, while treated vocal lines drift in and out of the mix.

I'll be honest, this isn't making me bounce round the room like a nutter or anything, but it's interesting stuff for sure, and further evidence of No 19's willingness to push the house envelope. Which, y'know… it's important that people do.

Out: This week
