Tone Of Arc – Shaking The Sky/No Pushers

A two-tracker here from uber-hip Canadian label No 19, courtesy of San Francisco duo Tone Of Arc.

A-side Shaking The Sky starts out with simple 4/4 kick and a whispered "no hesitation" vocal sample, building slowly via the emergence of a fat n' funky b-line and more vocal elements into a proper chuggin' deep house dancefloor stomper made for big, dark rooms… a track to lose yourself in. On the B, No Pushers is slightly more sedate, with echo-ing piano chords, rumbling bass, floaty vocal snips and pads a-gogo.

I'm not actually describing it very well – what can I tell you, you get days like that! – but suffice to say this is the contemporary post-minimal deep house sound executed superbly. Tone Of Arc apparently have an album in the pipeline and on this evidence it should be one to look out for.

Out: This week

About: You can find No. 19 at their website or on Facebook.
