Pitto – Baila Baila EP – Heist Recordings

You can hear the past echo throughout this. At least the sensibility that music should contain both heart and soul. Following on from his 2018 Heist release the artist kicks things off with the beautifully sequenced, sunshine vibes of Sammie. Whoever the person in question is they’ve inspired truly uplifting music combining simply effective combinations of piano chords, funky percussion and smoky, yearning vocals. The proceeding, Discko gets a little dirtier via sleazy bass, wonky synth lines and the feeling that this sounds better as morning approaches. The twisted notation continues on Baila with its cutting arpeggios referencing the 1980’s in excitable ways. Leaving the Pete Herbert remix of Sammie to rework the original essence care of brighter instrumentation that has the piano transport you straight back to the 1990’s.

Release: April 20

Demuir – An Artists Thinketh EP – Heist Recordings

Once upon a time records that sounded as exciting at this one populated dancefloors all over everywhere. Typifying and exciting the reasons why House Music, in the more fashionable part of the 1990’s, was so supremely wonderful to experience. Demuir has redefined that expectation with his delicious Werq. Feel. Gruv. Vogue. which succeeds in capturing your attention so intently that it reinforces all that was once significant about the genre. I can’t get enough of it! The rigours rhythms employed capture that essence as insanely sassy keys plus rolling bass and drums all work the tension up to fever-pitch, leaving the fierce vocals to ice the cake. Remaining numbers have the pumping, brash chords of The 3nity Returneth and the slinky, breezy refrains of Philippine Sunrise complete the release, though not before time to relish Lady Blacktronika’s intense reworking of the latter.

Release: December 2
