Smak AKA Steve McCready - The Summer Of Love EP 2
There's four tracks on offer. Bundle is a mid-paced affair with chopped, looped female vocal snippets and a lead M1 organ riff… which means it was never really gonna fail with this reviewer! Deeper Shades Of Violet is as the name suggests a deeper, more late-night/post-club kinda cut, working a gentle melodic groove and some vaguely Balearic/nu-disco-ish synths. Do It Again is a bouncier tech-house with hints of disco around the edges, and then finally Disco In The House… well that's another tin-says-does number but it does what it does well (and it's far more 'cool nu-disco' than 'cheesy disco-house', just in case you were worried).
I saw someone's feedback on this one that just said, "It's Smak, nuff said!" I can see where the poster was coming from, put it that way. If you're not already keeping an eye on this guy, you should be.
Out: This week
