Review: Sometime Sampling as an Art label contributor Yannick Roberts makes his bow on Freerange with a fine four-track missive of pleasingly warming, tactile and atmospheric deep house. The Dutch producer hits the ground running on 'I Can't Hide From Myself', an evocative and rolling workout in which minor key chords, synth-strings and gentle electronic melodies ride a jaunty, pulsating synth bassline and classic-sounding deep house beats. His love of sampling comes to the fore on jazz-flecked MPC-house jam 'Glorious Illusions' - mentor S3A would approve - while 'Femme Fatale' sees him make merry with a mix of rubbery bass guitar, effects-laden female vocal samples, Chez Damier chords and bustling beats. Closing cut 'Desalniettemin' doffs an oversized cap to classic U.S deep house and boasts some seriously toasty electric piano riffs.
