Wusel – Dancing Illusions

Dancing Illusions EP Bounce House
Somewhat shoddily I find myself apologising once more for slow updates this week… I'm back at the day job and the first couple of days always take it out of me. But anyway here we are now and there's this to talk about, a very spend-money-on-able four-tracker from Bounce House, a label whose intermittent release schedule definitely comes from the 'quality not quantity' school of thought!

Bounce House releases are usually worth the wait, though, and this is no exception. Dancing Illusions itself is in its Original form a throbbing prog/tech kinda affair. Label boss DK Watts then serves up a remix that's a bit more obviously TIWWD-ish, a fairly uptempo and driving (deep) houser still with the proggy overtones in places but also now with a killer Gypsy Woman-ish organ riff, some jazzy sax licks and a "can't we do this all night?" spoken, looped female vocal.

Two other original tracks make up the rest of the EP. Desert City is a midtempo, meandering and slightly mournful affair with lots of Arabic-sounding flutes and horns and also a synth riff that sounds like the riff from a late 80s/early 90s Italo-house track only all grown up now and a bit calmer, while on a similar note, Irritated is remarkable mostly for a main synth riff that's oddly reminiscent of a more subdued Zombie Nation!

Like I said: Bounce House releases are usually worth the wait, and this is no exception.

Out: This week

About: You can find Bounce House on Facebook, on Soundcloud or at their own website.

Oh and no, Wusel isn't me putting on an Elmer Fudd accent!
