Steve Lawlor's Viva Limited dropped the first Club Cuts compilation about a year ago, making quite an impression with its 12-sizzling house and techno jams. Here's a teaser for the follow-up and the line-up seems real strong. First up label fave Claire Ripley looks to early Chicago for the pumpin' "Jackanory", the mighty David Keno hooks up with Dalson for the bouncy tech-house "Honey Boo Boo", a track that benefits from the retro synths stabs and soulful vocal snippets. Lastly Sydney Blu closes with the stomping "Momento" a big room banger if ever there was one.
Berlin tech house hero David Keno returns for local imprint Mother Recordings, who have brought us some great releases of late by the likes of Mat.Joe, Superlover and Kevin Knapp. Here are two finely tuned grooves on the Youth EP. Starting off with the funky and lo-slung house groove of "Play" which is perfect to the set the crowd off just before the peak time at Kater Holzig or Ritter Butzke. Next up is of course the woozy and rolling tech house of the title track, with its throbbing basslineheadrush, druggy vocals and hypnotic synth stabs; it ticks all the right boxes if you ask us and is just perfect to mess with minds at the afterhour shift!
