Various – Spring Sampler
First up is Hector Moralez, the Californian house producer who's now resident in Paris, and one-half of Fries & Bridges along with Phil Weeks. He gives us Set Trippin', a bleepy, freaky jackathon with a "round and round, upside down" vocal sample. Next up is Monoman, a Manchester-based producer who runs the Ambush label. His Panic is a tougher, techier and more driving cut, with something of an air of early prog about it (think Guerrilla or Cowboy circa 1992-94). IKT from Romania's Manuel M is a loping, looping track with a Sneak-y disco feel, and then finally David Moran, one of the in-house team at 6th Sense, gives us Titel's Groove, which tops off a Relief/Cajual-style snare-heavy backdrop with sampled jive-talking hipster speech.
Titel's Groove and Set Trippin' would be my personal faves here, but all four tracks are very solid. So, groovy house music on an underground UK label… check this one out or I'll sulk at you. And you wouldn't like me when I'm sulking.
Out: This week
About: This is number five from 6th Sense, who are based in TIWWD's former home town of Manchesterford-On-Sea. Here's their website, or you can find 'em on Soundcloud and Facebook.
PS Manuel M, Moralez, Monoman, Moran… they've got ALL the M's!
