Review: Soul Deep, what a label. The only criticism you could level at these guys is that they release too much music, because it feels as if every single week there's another EP, or a single or an album. This week it's label founder MSDOS and he's dropping Lost Vibes, an EP with a title track that sticks up to its name; soft, gentle and certainly deft in how an array of fluffy sampling sits above a solid drum line. 'Beside Her' pushes things up a notch intensity wise, with a new burst of energy coming from that jumpy amen loop and tight back end, a true bit of liquid funk. Another good bit of A&R from these guys.
Review: MsDOS is one of the most long-standing liquid producers in the scene, and he's someone who has been around the block more times than you can really count, with an endless amount of releases across a host of labels. Soul Deep is the host this time and it's for his Barcelona LP, as part of the label's long-running Artist Spotlight series. It's chock a block with funky, light hearted tones set to a running pace and we especially dig 'Silicon Valley', a synthy number which will stab its way into your heart - not literally. Lovely music on this one.
Review: Conspire has been popping up on labels both liquid and otherwise for quite some time now, and if you haven't checked out his back-catalogue we definitely recommend you take a dive one quiet evening. He's next up in the Soul Deep Artist Spotlight series and damn, what an instalment number five is as the man himself rolls out some soul across varying drum patterns and vibes. 'Jazz Fusion' takes the funkiness of Peshay or someone similar and chops it into bits, gullying things out whilst keeping the overall feeling upbeat and energetic. 'Alone With Nature' is also a highlight, another jungle number, this one packs melancholic piano chords and a stuttering drum break which flutters in tandem. Lovely.
