Dave Mayer & Ebbo Riginal – Your Story
And quality is the word here, have no doubt. Your Story is a soulful house cut that – unlike a lot of such tackle in recent years, sad to say – isn't all muso-y and polite and oh-so-freakin'-earnest, and actually has nice solid kicks and a proper big hip-shakin' bassline! Said b-line is topped by a spoken vocal that sounds like it might be sampled from an evangelist or self-help guru or black power dude or something, hi-hats that chish-chish along nicely and some lovely energising jazzy piano/organ licks. Think west coast circa 2000-4.
Simply accompanied by a more percussion-led dub, this is, equally simply, soulful house as it should be: with plenty of funk in its veins and plenty of bump in its grooves. Niceness.
Out: This week
About: This comes, as I said, on Seamless Soul. Here's their Facebook and Soundcloud.
