Review: He may have focused on Dave Seaman's Selador as an outlet in recent times, but Mannheim's 8 bit have certainly been championing the work of Danny Howells too. After two electrifying releases in the form of "Whiterock" and last year's terrific 'Players' EP, the industry veteran follows through with another riveting new EP for Nick Curly and Gorge's ever reliable imprint. Get stoned into the groove on the low slung and bass-driven funk of "Paradium", be utterly hypnotised by the sublime and dubby deep house of "Spindles" until he takes you back deep into the aether on the moody afterhours workout of "Chordlock".
Review: Nick Curly and Gorge are certainly glad to have the legendary British player Danny Howells back on 8bit Records. Proper house music in all its styles and variations here, much in the vein of last year's celebrated appearance for the label - the amazing Whiterock EP. Features the low slung yet emotive percussive house thriller "Players", in addition to the sweltering disco inflected funk attack of "Retreat", right through to the slinky and hypnotic tech house journey of "Mayfeels" harking back to his glory days as a tastemaker on the progressive house scene at the turn of the millenium. That being said, this industry veteran is now displaying some of his most exhilarating output yet.
Review: The legendary 3D DJs aka Darren Emerson, Dave Seaman & Danny Howells return to complete their trilogy of EPs for Seaman's Selador imprint. The third installment of their collaborative album project sees each of them contribute an individual track. It's Howells who kicks things off with the slinky and hypnotic groove of "Shortwave", followed by Emerson who contributes the balmy percussive tech house journey of "Sleeping Bag' featuring subtle balearic undertones. It's boss man Seaman hammering the message home with the powerful, peak time dancefloor drama of "Press 1 For Human". All for one and one for all, three is the magic number.
