James Dexter – System Check EP
In the meantime, there's just time ce soir to tell you about a couple of deep house gems that are landing from a couple of TIWWD's favourite labels. First up is this EP from James Dexter, a 25-year-old producer from London who's had stuff out on some pretty heavy-hitting labels already: Om, Salted and Nervous to name but three. Here, though, he serves up his debut for the mighty Lost My Dog.
It's a four-track affair, and the title track is actually my least favourite, I'm sorry to say! You've gotta love those raw, jacking beats overlaid with piercing synths and female vocal wails, so it's not rubbish by any means… I could just do without the bloke shouting "It's a soundsystem banger" over and over again. Not to worry though, cos there's plenty more to enjoy here, from the soulful One Day, to the small-hours dancefloor vibes of Do That Thing and In & Out.
Quality deep house music, but then what else would you expect?
Out: This week
