The Seventh release on the Stroud-based Situationism label comes from Bittersuite, a Brighton and Bristol based trio comprising Jon Gray, Dom Thompson and Matt Pond. While previous releases have purely focused on soul-flecked deep house, "Leopard Scares Fox" fuses their usual hazy deep house sensibility with twinkling, Herbie Hancock-style synth work, rubbery disco-funk bass, and the loose percussive swing of jazz. This jazz influence is even more evident on bonus cut "Pulsing Xania", which is the kind of cosmic broken beat-meets-deep house loveliness that was once a trademark of the West London bruk set. Elsewhere, label bosses Situation provide a rolling, jazzy and deliciously sun-kissed interpretation of the tasty title track.
