Review: Brooklyn, NYC label Let's Play House bring us a very solid three-tracker from St David, a producer based in southern Italy who's previously appeared on labels including Frole, Manitou and Quality Vibe. Opener 'I'm On Beat' is an instrumental jam based on crisp, rolling beats, a nagging two-note piano riff and a hint of funk guitar, atop which an insistent flute functions as the lead line. 'Bumpin' Heat' is aptly titled, another instrumental affair sitting right on the deep house/garage cusp, while finally 'Jumpin' Dub' is a slightly pacier cut with cut-up vocal snips and a filtered bassline.
Review: Davide Disanto - that's St David to you and me - completes his trio of releases on Let's Play House with an effervescent trip into what the Brooklyn label calls "90s throwback territory". In effect, that means swirling, filter-sporting disco-house. Opener "Sexy Funk '98", for example, layers a bustling, DJ Sneak style groove with rugged and raunchy sections from an electrically charged disco-funk workout, while the insanely bass-heavy "I Got The Music" is a maelstrom of hold-and-release disco-house euphoria. The fun continues on chunky and sweet stomper "When You Move" and the heady late night hustle of "The Connection", which has a hazier and much more locked-in feel than the EP's other tracks.
