Proggy bizniss

Okay, after a couple of days this week where I didn't get round to doing any blogging we're a bit behind… so gonna take a different approach and group some stuff together today.

Smak Summer Of Love Vol 3 Hype Muzik
First up, a couple of bits n' bobs on slightly proggier tip, kicking off with the Summer Of Love Part 3 EP from Smak AKA Steve McCready. The third in what's been a strong series, this has four tracks, with the deeper, housier side of prog – or the proggier side of deep house, depending how you see it – being the general order of the day.

The Garnier-esque drama of Everytime We Touch and the energising throb of Feeling stand out but all four tracks are very playable.

Out: This week

Namatjira Fallin' Low Bit Records
Next up is Fallin', which comes from Namatjira featuring Royal Sapien. I'll be honest and say I'm not really into the main vocal mix so much, it's a bit Ibiza-prog-by-numbers with a slighty too-white vocal… it's not terrible, it just doesn't excite me much. Personally.

But that's okay, cos flip it over and you'll find a far more satisfactory Dub, which drops the vocals and takes a generally more heads-down, 4am floataway kind of approach. To rather good effect.

Out: This week

About: This one's on Low Bit Records, which was formed in Sweden in 2008 but is now based in London
