Sidetrak are a new label from the North East specialising in the deeper end of tech house, and on the strength of their first release their future looks very bright indeed. The first EP comes from label co-owner Red Star Arcade, whose Circoloco-inspired house combines a low-slung sleazy quality with a depth lacking in much music of its type. "Compassion Love" takes a muffled vocal, snappy percussion and crystalline synth melodies and combines them with a dubby bassline. Four solid remixes are also included, ranging from Off The Cuff's cowbell infused version, Appo's slow, Balearic transformation, Born To Groove's Chicago flavoured version withliquid piano chords and Deep C's throbbing peak time roller. All told, excellent stuff.
