Milan's Flashmob is back with Remixes Pack Vol. 1 and if this first edition is anything to go by: fans are really in for a treat! Starting out with Stefano Esposito's gutsy and stomping rendition of "Do You Do", there's more quality in the form of Dutchman Wouter De Moor's emotive and dusty deep house makeover. French legend Julien Sandre appears also with "Parade" which gets an adrenalised main-room tech house remix by Greek producer Echonomist. Finally, Strictly Rhythm's Lowheads (based out London) get on board too; their contribution "Ght" gets a 2016 re-edit which sits well beside De Moor's contribution earlier, by providing some smoother grooves of the deeper spectrum.
Kevin Griffiths' Tsuba imprint has been around for a while, but recently underwent a bit of a relaunch. The label's ethos hasn't changed much, though - Griffiths is still committed to releasing high quality deep house with a chunky, 'floor-friendly feel. This three-tracker delivers that in spades. Moodtrap kicks things off with the rubbery "Influence" - all loopy bass, elastic synth riffery and cut-up vocal samples - before Huxley drops some old skool NYC bounce in the shape of heavyweight late night jam "Take No More". Julien Sandre rounds things off with "Without You", a strutting slice of late night groovery that revolves around some choice bleep melodies.
