Following hot on the heels of his killer vocal house EP with We Play House boss Red D (under their new FCL moniker), San Soda returns to the Belgian imprint with this solo effort. Here we see the euphoric house of FCL replaced by more restrained yet equally danceable tunes, kicking off with "Bright Piano," which brings to mind Session Victim's recent hit, "The Keyboarder". "Ode Aan De Verkeersdrempel," which some light internet sleuthing revealed is Dutch for "Ode To The Traffic Threshold" (surely something lost in translation there), is another shimmering house jam. The EP winds down with the more restrained vibe of "Hypocrisy" and the delectable jazzy keys of "Middelmatig In 1993". Great little release from an up and coming producer.
Damn! The Toch Al De Vijfde EP makes for a long overdue return to the solo release game for We Play House main man San Soda! We're not quite sure what the title means as we skipped Flemish A Level at school (Yet already the fifth?) but San Soda is truly on form here, dropping four fully fledged deep house gems - one of which features a certain Dresden dynamo called Jacob Korn! As soon as those oven warm keys spiral out in tandem with a classic house harmony on "You Hear Me" we expect this release will be on your want list but do check "See More Days" which features the aforementioned Korn as well as Hercules & Love Affair singer Gustaph, who belts out some Red D penned lyrics over the Korn Soda production with the sort of aplomb that obviously impressed Andy Butler.
