With summer fast approaching, Suol has decided to get ahead of the game with an EP chock full of sweltering, sun-kissed deep house treats. Atjazz kicks things off with the rich chord progressions, lilting synthesizer melodies and bouncy drums of sunset-friendly shuffler "Programme Sunlight", before label regulars Chopstick and Johnjon serve up the similarly positive and breezy "Last Night". Elsewhere, Matthias Vogt cranks out the languid, life-affirming pianos and blissful electronics on Balearic house gem "Chanterelle", M.Ono delivers a loved-up twist on loopy disco house, and Carlo drops a chunk of bumpin', bass-heavy goodness blessed with sun-bright guitar flourishes. Best of all, though, is Meggy and Tigerskin's "Bygone Eras", a slick and sultry chunk of sun-bright modern soul.
Like its two predecessors, this third EP from the Ourselves label gathers together tracks from a handful of hugely talented producers. Sello kicks things off with the sparkling Latin disco/Balearic deep house fusion of "Loop My Ass", before Jan Kettel and Siggatunez provide a chunkier slab of melodious deep house goodness ("Today is the Past of Tomorrow", which also includes some superb Rhodes flourishes and wobbly acid lines). Jammed-out electric piano lines come to the fore on the brilliant nu-disco/deep house fusion that is "Walnuss Express" by M.Ono and Luvless, while Lootbeg's blissfully melodious and starry "Rememberin" is by far and away the EP's standout moment. Even by his high standards, it's rather special.
