Long time French house stalwart Jef K is kicking off on this project alongside fellow Parisian Rhythm&Soul, under the quintessentially house moniker The Groove Brothers. Unsurprisingly, it's a cozy, familiar kind of house they cook up, with "Soul Food Cafe" working that infamous Robbie Tronco "Walk 4 Me" sample into a smooth beat, soaring pads and neat chord stabs. "Everyday" lays on a heavier, boogie inflected bassline and some more soulful overtones, not least from the tasty vocal performance. Remixer in demand Nail is at it once again on "Soul Food Cafe", rubbing his jumpy beats and playful synth programming into the firmament of the original.
Parisian veteran Jef K has been immersed in deep, sensual house music since the 90s, and still he continues to turn out the gold. On this occasion he's drafted in regular collaborators Rhythm & Soul for two tracks that lay the funk samples down heavy and keep the grooves classy, then On A Mission offers some alternative names to get a look in. Mr Ks has a more jazzed out roll at work on "High Street", and Kub brings a notably mellow mood to "The Basement" to smoothly round off the EP.
