Review: DJ Godfather back in da house with Smoke In Da Air, the crowning track of a release that's backed up by three electro, acid and house inspired jams. "Smoke In Da Air" stands out from the get-go for its undeniable footwork flavour, detuned vocals, smokey chords and wavering bassline - a hit! For your classic slice of ghetto house head straight to "Big Girl", with "Like Some Dubstep" going from minimal groove to Ultra Music festival banger. And for a pure deep house vibe with a touch of everything Detroit - "Rebirth Of A City" is your jam.
Review: Here's something of a surprise: a first single in six years from former Local Talk artist and man/woman of mystery Black Fan. First up we get to check out the artist's remixing skills, as he (or she) offers up a brand-new interpretation of Greymatter's 2011 jam 'Tesla', a mighty slab of sweaty, warehouse-ready euphoria that first appeared on a compilation style Wolf Music EP. As the mix title suggests, Black Fan has drawn enormous influence from the muscular, dark room-ready Sound Factory-era sound of Junior Vasquez, peppering a tough, driving groove with echoing synth riffs and Greymatter's glassy-eyed female vocal samples. In contrast 'Cuttlefish', an original Black Fan track, is a sparkling and colourful slab of electronica that sits somewhere between electro, deep house and IDM.
