Domineeky - Promise Me Love
I needn't have worried. The six tracks* here may be Afro-infused and soulfully inclined, but unlike a lot of artists that venture into such territory, Domineeky never forgets that all-important dancefloor oomph. Elephant's Afro rhythms, for instance, are underpinned by pulsing, throbbing electronic bass, then topped off with parping jazz sax, while the hip-shaking, shuffling township-isms of Reflections On A Memory are likewise counterpointed by decidedly non-noodly thumping 4/4 kicks.
In short, this is global house fusion bizniss that for once doesn't forget to actually be house music while it's about it. That'll do for me.
Out: This week
About: This comes on Dom's own label Good Voodoo Music, who are based in the northeast of the UK. Find 'em at their website, on Facebook and on Soundcloud.
*I know it says five but there are two mixes of the title track
