FXHE return with the master of the mysterious OB Ignitt! Arriving roughly a year on from the last slab of Ignitt goodness, Mysterious finds OB on imperious form, once more showing off his penchant for excellent track titles and singular slant on bumping Detroit business. The title track is a veritable epic of unquantifiable emotive stakes, emerging from a heat treated fog and easing into a subtle yet beguiling rhythmic framework which coaxes you into a spell that grows stronger as the track charges electrically forth. Face down, “Celestial Salacious” has that same rough edged bass line growl to it, but the skipping percussion and building layers of instrumentation give the track real energy, whilst you can almost feel the funk dripping off final track “Chocolate City”.
Big Strick and Generation Next have come together to bring us three tracks that are made for the dance floor. ‘Rain Dance’ by Big Strick is the first song off of the new EP. It definitely has various aspects of deep house and soul of a Detroit native. The next song is ‘And You Too’ by Generation Next. This is a groove where you can get up and dance as well as casually listen. The bass makes you move and it is accompanied by a simple yet affective drum pattern. The last track is titled ‘Like Father, Like Son’ – Generation Next and Big Strick collaborate to bring us a melodic dance tune. This track will be played in clubs around the world. Simple chords, groovy baseline and knocking drums.
New split EP on Eglo Record featuring FunkinEven and The Abstract Eye aka GB. Acidic, spaced out, atmospheric House trips.
Tadd’s acid warrior alter ego, JTC, returns to Spectral Sound a label he’s been a part of for at least a decade and with it comes an onslaught of house and funk to fill up a dancefloor. ”Valley Road (We Are 1)” has a classic Detroit sound that could easily find its way into Mike Huckaby or Rick Wade’s DJ bags, and includes the assurance that ”together we are one.” After the intense and dark Creep Acid 2xLP that came out on Nation in 2011, it’s impressive to see the former Mr. Cotton return with something so fun and buoyant. The DJ QU remix is a perfect accompaniment, coating the original version’s classic New York house elements with a deeper, hypnotic tribal rhythm that can be heard at QU’s late-night warehouse sets where Queens meets nowhere.
