Rob Clarke – The 100th Monkey EP
There are six tracks/mixes to choose from… not gonna go into each one in infinite detail right now, but generally speaking, floor-friendly deep house with a slightly west coast-ish slant is the order of the day, with an added Italo/nu-disco twist to Lucid Reality. Apart from on Open Your Hat [sic] there's perhaps less of the soulful/garage-y slant you often get with Beats Me stuff, but fans of the label – and I count myself in that number – should nonetheless be very happy with this one. If pushed, I'd say Sidewinder is the pick but it's a close call.
Oh yeah, and it also comes with a little extra help from DK 'Short Bus Kids' Watts, who provides a remix of Blow Your Own Trumpet – surely a sign that the Eastbourne-based label's rep in the international deep house community is growing. And rightly so.
Out: This week
