Shouldn’t music seek to reach beyond what is easily accessible? Whether that is the cause of la-de-da melodies or the over-used words that shape them. In which case you will find as much pleasure in Deeply Essential as I do. Two tracks adorn this latest release from the ever excellent Atjazz and while House Dancer may not win prizes for title subtlety it does for sheer intensity, which isn’t brutal but an intricate, fine mesh of emotive keys and shuffling drums pinpointing the magic. Tribute To Cielo, then adds extra punch to the production in celebration of the New York club via a series of heavy chords infused with deeply spirited appreciation.
Release: May 24
