Ghosts Of The Sky – Ghosts Of The Sky [PERP004]

With its fourth release, Perpetual Rhythms appears with three tunes from label owners Chicagodeep and Taelue as Ghosts of the Sky. When we look up into the stars we see them as they were millions and in some cases billions of years ago. This fact intern gives way to the name of the collaboration, timeless sounds that fill your soul as they travel through the reaches of your mind via your eardrums. The self titled release features three deep tunes that extend the genre of deep house with groovy rhythms, plush chords, and a quintessential Chicago touch.

VA – Halal Prepared Vol.3 [BOE025]

While their sporadic appearance remains a frustration, it’s hard to find fault with Boe Recordings’ Halal Prepared series of EPs. This third installment of the series, which lands 12 months after it’s’ predecessor, contains another quarter of high quality deep house jams. The real highlights – to our ears, at least – are the two tracks that doff a cap to classic Detroit techno, whilst keeping their feet firmly rooted in deep house. Both “Star Struck” by Chicago Deep and Havantepe’s “Plane Waves” capture the retro-futurist spirit and stargazing electronics associated with the Motor City perfectly. Elsewhere, keep an eye out for Taelue’s “Desolate Dreams”, which offers a bittersweet trip into ultra-deep house territory.
