London based US Producer Lance De Sardi joins the Hudd Traxx fray for the last title before the label hits 50 releases and commence the 10th Anniversary celebrations. Although there's only three cuts on West Country, De Sardi more than shows his diversity as a producer and it's a fine addition to a discography that dates back to the '90s. "Pariah" kicks the EP off in fine style with smooth beats, an infectious vocal and lush pads ensure that this will be a big one for the heads. Flip for the B Side and find a tough acidy number in "Youth", and a groovy track in "Race the Clock" which is made for the dance floor. 2015 is already proving to be a big year for Hudd Traxx following releases from Iron Curtis & Nachtbraker, and Lance De Sardi keeps the flag flying high with this solid EP.
Miguel Migs aside, you'll struggle to find a more long-serving San Franciscan producer than Lance DeSardi. Since making his debut way back in 1998, DeSardi has released rock solid house cuts on such labels as Chez, Pacific Traxx, Hudd Trax and Siesta Music. Here he returns to Fred Everything's Lazy Days imprint for the first time in six years. Opener "Future Time" joins the dots between spacey, 1980s synth-pop and hazy deep house, with the accompanying Instrumental version stripping out the trippy, Police-era Sting style vocal. The humid "Field Recording" evokes memories of both Mr Fingers and vintage Italian dream house, while "Wild B&^ch" is a rolling, riff-heavy late night shuffler tailor-made for those 4AM moments.
