Jack Fell Down – Either Way EP

Jack Fell Down Either Way EP Southern Fried
Next we have an EP from a label who don't crop up on here all that often, Southern Fried Records. But it should be pointed out that this is a surprisingly straight-up house offering from Norman Cook's label.

It's a four-track affair, and kicks off with King Of Clubs, a deep, slightly techy house cut with floaty, disembodied vox, atmospheric synths and a stuttered, pulsing underlying groove. Ease In To Me [sic… cos it should be 'into me' really, the sub-editor in me feels obliged to point out!] is up next, a garage-inflected organ track with a female vocal from Emma Rossi, followed by Roll Over, which is a more now-sounding slab of deep/tech house with a soulful male vocal. Finally, Emma Rossi returns on Need In You, another Si'Ke DJs Turn Back Swink Music that's got something of a classic feel, this time drawing on the darker sound of mid-90s NYC for inspiration.

Ease In To Me would be my pick, but it's all good, as they say. I wish Southern Fried released more records like this…

Out: This week
