Sebastian Roter & Dan Lewis – Mavis' Song
As befits the label's raison d'etre – for those who've just come in, it's for dat tracky shit, as opposed to what goes on the Seamless Soul and Seamless Deep imprints – loopy, chuggy, techy house is what you get here. It's got a little of that balkan/gypsy vibe that got a bit boring a year or two back, but actually sounds quite fresh again now that it's not being delivered by the truckload, and a swing-style "I've got those happy feet" vocal sample. The A-side Crazibiba Remix (the Original's tucked away on the B), meanwhile, is similar but adds a synth-horn riff that sounds like the first three notes of the Abracadabra riff played over and over, or maybe that's just me.
As with the Creaminal Grooves release below, there's nothing here we haven't heard before but these are familiar flavours handled well and this should work on the floor no problem.
Out: This week
About: You can find Seamless at their own website, on Facebook or on Soundcloud. As for who Mavis is, your guess is as good as mine. It could be Miss Riley from Rita's shop I suppose, but I don't really know…
PS For the non-UK readers, that's a joke based on an English soap opera so if it made no sense to you, don't worry about it.
