The Rimshooters Vs Snax – Pledge Allegiance

Some upfront, contemporary-sounding house vibes here courtesy of boutique Parisian label Her Majesty's Ship. It's available on limited edition hand-painted vinyl and everything!

There's three mixes on offer, and they vary quite considerably. The original is a midtempo slab of disco house/nu boogie, and very satisfying in the 'fat squelchy bass' department. But the vocal's a little European/synthpop-sounding so better to these ears is the Box Office Poison House Dub, which… well, y'know is housier and dubbier, what can tell you? Finally, and just pipping the latter for me, is Rimshooters' own Acid Dub which… oh, come on.

With house, ahem, "back in" right now*, I do get a bit anxious sometimes if these young 'uns with their funny jeans and haircuts are gonna get it right. Records like this reassure me no end.

Out: This week

About: You can find Her Majesty's Ship on Facebook, Soundcloud or their own website. This is only their fifth release, by the way. Oh, and if you want the vinyl, have a peep at Resident Advisor for a list of previous HMS stockists.

*a phrase that makes me laugh cos for some of us, it's never been out… for the past 20 years or more. Tsk, kids! :-)
