Darius Syrossian – My Side Project EP

Darius Syrossian My Side Project EP Mile End Records
Darius Syrossian returns to Canada's Mile End Records, who apparently had to compete with the likes of Jamie Jones, DJ Sneak and Andre Crom to sign this.

And no wonder… the title track here is as fine a slab of 100% non-cheesy, jackin' disco house as you'll hear all week. It's also probably the only record you'll hear all week that's got a vocal that goes "You know what that is? That's a fucking TUBA!" Well, it made me smile…

Over on the B, 1994 Session is, on the whole, a more contemporary-sounding slice of deep/tech action than the name might suggest, though it does have a big wobbling acid bassline… and it comes complete with a deeper refix from Butler & Murt that ditches the 303, adds a spoken, French-accented female vocal and ends up sounding, to these ears, not entirely unlike Deee-Lite's What Is Love? remade in a 2012 Berlin/London stylee.

Which is meant as a compliment, BTW! All told, three very strong tracks, and quite varied as well, so you can't really go wrong.

Out: This week
