Portland's Trevor Vichas keeps his love of deep textured house music alive with this new set of beats for the Funk Mansion label. Title track "House Werks" is truly a nocturnal delight, with subby Detroit chords dominating over a bass-free beat, while "Ms. Understood" uses a simple reverbed guitar motif as the backbone of yet another heartstring-tugger. The flowing jazz-jack of "Musical Bliss" rounds off this sparkling EP.
A longtime devotee of all things funky and house, US producer Trevor Vichas lets the good times roll on this new tune from Phobic Records. Bearing some timeless DJ Sneak-style hats, a languid live bassline and a looped and filtered vocal hook, "Born Into" could melt hearts of stone with its simple jacking swing and sunny melodies. Dutch DJ Tommy Largo lends his skills to a deeper revisit of the tune, while Tom Special Interest puts the soulful vocal loop at the forefront of his mix, gently adding some subtle tremolo to set it off nicely.
