Inland Knights – The Break Out EP

Inland Knights The Break Out EP Outcross Records
We start off the week's reviews in fine style, with the latest from two of the UK's best-established and most respected of deep house practitioners.

Given that the IKs' take on deep house has always leaned heavily to the 'bumpin' and floor-friendly' side of things, as soon as I tell you the title you've probably already got a pretty good idea of what Bounce might sound like… and you'd be right. So all I need to tell you is that it features an insistent high-end synth riff and a hip-hop style vocal. The rest of the EP is made up two mixes of Broken: the original is a fusion of boogie-fied deep house with phat ravey buzz bass, while the MAM Remix takes us a notch or two deeper.

There's no particular new ground broken or anything, admittedly: this is archetypal Inland Knights/Smokescreen fare. But no-one does this shit quite like Laurence and Andy do it, do they?

Out: This week

About: This comes not on Drop Music, but on Leeds-based Outcross Records, which is run by Matt Hughes and Miguel Campbell (AKA, of course, MAM). Find 'em on Soundcloud, on Facebook or at their own website.
