Review: To kick-start 2018, Spleador and Squalour owners and sometime Dirt Crew Recordings artists Brame & Hamo serve up and trio of high-grade deep house treats. They begin with "Roy Keane", a chunky hybrid of tech-tinged deep house heaviness and celebratory orchestral disco that hits home harder than one of the Irish midfielder's two-footed tackles. The track that follows, "Space Dub", brilliantly joins the dots between throbbing Detroit techno futurism and intergalactic deep house bliss, while closer "Club Orange" is a shimmering slice of peak-time deep house complete with sampled party atmos, swirling strings and throbbing analogue bass.

Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

Review: The sleepy seaside town of Sligo, based on Ireland's Atlantic coast, seems an unlikely location to base a deep house label. More remarkably, this debut 12" from Sligo-based Splendor & Squalor comes from two residents of the town: longtime DJ buddies and hip-hop/deep house fusionists Brame and Hamo. It's a strong first outing, with each of the three original cuts coming doused in smooth soul and hip-hop influences. That's means beats that swing, sensual strings, chunky bass and the kind of pads that seem to wrap themselves around your body. The duo's collaborative "Clockwork" - arguably the pick of the bunch - is also remixed by Session Victim (think ultra-deep goodness), while Hamo's sample-heavy "Soul" offers the perfect balance between smiling deep house and classic hip-house.

Limewire (Tuff City Kids remix) - (6:48) 128 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Spleandor & Squalor founders Brame and Hamo started 2018 in confident fashion, serving up an EP that contained some of their strongest tracks to date ("Club Orange"). There are plenty more fine workouts to be found on this relatively speedy follow-up, from the swirling but driving early morning intoxication of "Parade Rain" - all elongated synthesizer notes, sun-bright melodies and symphonic chords rising above thrusting bass and beats - to the more jacking and spacey "Sports Complex". Arguably even better is the breezy, loved-up and rushing retro-futurism of "Limewire", which joins the dots between Italian dream house and early breakbeat hardcore. This in turn is given a chunkier, 4/4 house tweak by giddy retro-futurists Tuff City Kids, whose version is predictably endorphin-fuelled.

Clarence (Smooth mix) - (6:28) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
Review: Brame & Hamo rose to prominence in 2015 on the back of inspired EPs for Heist and Dirt Crew Recordings, but have been relatively quiet since. In fact, this three-tracker is the Irish twosome's first release for almost 18 months. They begin with the bustling late night deep house-funk of "Trants", where bleeping synthesizer melodies, woozy vocal samples and sweeping strings cluster around a tactile, synth-heavy groove. Arguably even better is the more up-tempo "Hurt You", a subtly energetic deep house roller full of spacey, cyclical synth riffs, bombastic bottom end, snappy drum machine hits and looped hip-hop vocal samples. Finally, they pay tribute to classic New Jersey deep house jams of old via the snaking synth-sax, bouncy beats and beautiful pianos of EP standout "Clarence (Smooth Mix)".
