Review: On a quest to keep deep house true to its roots while bringing it into the modern age at the same time, Ooft! are clear in their aims to keep things atmospheric on this new EP on their Foto imprint. Just listen to the haunting tones of "Galaxy High", with its uplifting pads, strings and leads and only the most gentle of rhythmic guides. "Arbitrary" is more solidly built, but still the languid chords rule the day, creating an addictive brew of deep house with a sense of purpose. "LGB" leans towards a more punchy 80s disco tip, but still they can't help making those synths cosmic and seductive enough to duck away from revivalism.

Review: As the world goes a bit crazy for the nuptials of Britain's monarch-in-waiting, Scottish deep houser Ali Ooft offers up his own Deep Wedding. Thankfully, there's nary a union jack bowler hat or horse-faced royal in sight. Instead, we get a hypnotic crescendo of endless guitar and synth loops, heavyweight beats and chunky deep house bass. While the elements are simple the sheer force of the build is enough to cause pandemonium (though probably not at wedding receptions). Wedding presents come in the shape of remixes from Mirror People and Huxley, whose heart-tugging, piano-laden version evokes memories of Frankie Knuckles in his late 1980s pomp.
