Various – The Leeds EP

Various The Leeds EP Midnight Social Recordings
Having grown up in the Leeds/Bradford area, it's pleasing to see how the Leeds house scene has grown so strong in recent years. This seven-artist, eight-track EP from Midnight Social Recordings serves as a reminder of just how strong it really is.

With tracks from Al '3am' Bradley, Thomas Malo, Joe Morris, Steve Jones, Soanso, TDRMC (whose Me And My 808 is presented in two different mixes) and of course label boss Carlo Gambino, there's plenty to please lovers of the deep here. Most tracks err towards the techy side of things, but Gambino's Work Dat adds a little west coast/east midlands-style bump n' funk while Morris's Sunburst takes us into dreamier, Mogadon-disco pastures.

Honourable mention must also be made of Steve Jones's Plasterman, which comes on like a ride on a tech-house ghost train. Well, it does to these ears, anyway…

Out: This week

About: You can find Midnight Social Recordings on Facebook. Oh yeah, and this one's a Beatport exclusive, I should probably mention…
