Next up on Will Saul's tech house powerhouse is the return of NYC by way of New Haven maestro Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL with some energised modern hi-NRG vibes on "Wondering Mind". With its diva vocals, euphoric arpeggios and energised rhythms all working together for perfect dancefloor drama. Next up, the cleverly titled "Paradox Garage" goes for more reverse looking aesthetics on this evocative acid house tribute, awash in grainy lo-fi aesthetics, bumpy bass and jacked vocals on something reminiscent of classic 808 State. Finally on the flip, we have "I'm Missin You" which is also presented in a brazenly retro aesthetic with its grainy and saturated tape quality. Complete with Jamie Principle style vocals, disco guitar licks and all round neon-lit aesthetic which takes you back to the legendary Windy City days of Trax Records and WBMX Hot Mix radio late night sessions.
Next up on Jamie Jones' diffusion imprint are Vibe Killers: born and bred in the heart of Lancashire, the North West double-act have formed a formidable bond together consisting of 20 years worth of blood, sweat and tears.. and straight up house music! Having accomplished releases on such respected labels as Knee Deep In Sound, Elrow, Sola, Material and many more, the stock of this sibling pair is one that continues to bubble over the surface much to everyone's delight. Their new killer "Violator" is exactly the kind of groove you'd expect to be up to standard on this imprint - and it absolutely reeks of White Isle debauchery! Full adrenaline with its rolling groove, druggy vibe and on-point functionality. Second offering "The Situation" take it up a few notches higher with this funky, swing fuelled and downright bumpin' groove that bridges the gap between the main room tech house sounds of now and '90s style Chicago house.
