ALBUM Sun 7 – Into Deep
Suffice to say that first time I stuck this album on turned out to be the first of many! "A variety of house styles, ranging between chilly, soulful deepness and proper danceability" is how the hype sheet describes Into Deep*, and that's a pretty fair description. Opening with the off-kilter, jazzual nu-disco grooves of House Me (Apollo 11) working its way over the course of the ensuing 11 tracks through deep, techy, soulful flavas before ending with the appropriate-titled Closer featuring sometimes Manuel Tur and Pezzner vocalist Larissa Kapp, this is as fine a full-album house music listening experience as you're likely to find this month.
So go find it.
Out: This week
