DK Watts – Don't Wanna See You
DK's original of Don't Wanna… is a fairly uptempo number that blends deep house and nu-disco influences, with some psychedelic-ish tinges around the edges too. Mark Jones (the Irish one, not the Wall of Sound one) then takes us on a deeper journey with it, but with a rock-solid 4/4 kick that ensures the natural home for this rub is on mangled afterhours floors.
Gotta say I'm not quite so into the Alex Alterskye Remix, which adds a disconcerting second vocal that sounds like an elephant in pain… but no matter, cos No-One rounds out the EP in fine style, another uncompromising dancefloor stomper that brings a little classic west coast flavour. Which is never a bad thing in TIWWD's books!
Out: This week on Beatport, everywhere else from 2 July.
