Review: Hailing from Gijon in the north of Spain, Poetry in Motion is a concept, a way of life and record label created by Tete de la Course, Paul Rudder, Oui and Hurlee. Next up on their label are Vienna's Jakobin & Domino with some quality deep house music that has seen them release previously on top labels such as Luv Shack Records and Large Music. The sexy late night groove of "Wanna Get Up" is real proper deep house that ticks all the right boxes: lush Rhodes melody, funk bass and backed by dusty rhythm arrangements. The smooth and sexy slo-mo groove continues on "Don't Let Em Getcha" while the ultra-deep closer "True Things Are Rare" nails that soulful and bittersweet Prescription Records style vibe.
Review: Luv Shack Records' newest EP marks the 26th release on the label and it's a classic split affair by stalwart artists Space Echo and Jakobin & Domino. Space Echo's "My Heart My Soul" is feelgood, uplifting disco looped to perfection if we do say so ourselves. His next joint "Party Together" is more on the lo-slung and definitely slo-mo tip: to get groovy earlier on or later in the evening. It is then over to Jakobin & Domino with "You Want My Love" which features a familiar loop and it's so funky, soulful and irresistible. Finally "Filter Queen" is another earworm and you just know you've heard that loop somewhere before, right? Ah, it makes you love it.. what more can we say!
Review: Viennese label Luv Shack are on course to scoop first prize in breakthrough house label of 2012 with label regulars Jakobin and Domino at the helm on this four track EP package of groove laden goodness. The title track "Squeeze Me" and its respective remix from LeSale both bump and bounce with the kind of jack reminiscent of early Freerange or Inland Knights output, while facedown production "Lately" is more analogue, acid and tech inspired. There's a definite hallmark of Brett Johnson / early Classic Records to this production, and if that's just a tad too retro and stripped back, jump on the deeply cosmic Burning Tears remix. Feel the Luv.
