No nonsense house stable Holic Trax turn to accomplished producer and DJ Ekkohaus for their next EP. The Greek producer has been leading the house scene from the front for more than a decade now.Up first here is "Corner People" with a prying synth line that burrows deep into the night as blobs and droplets of colour rain down next to it. The underlying drums are slick and smooth and the overall effect is brilliantly hypnotic. The fantastically fresh "Shout It Out" then goes fast and deep into a world of liquid pads and spiralling chords. Whispered vocals add a sensual heat and the swiftness of the groove cannot fail to carry you away in fine fashion. "New Tricks" has meaty, roughhewn drums driving it along and is nice and frayed and analogue around the edges. Curious stabs and rattling, DIY perc sounds percolate up through the mix on this most macho of deep house tracks. Lastly, vinyl only effort "Because of You" is a slick, syrupy deep house cut with wavy, bendy tones, terrifically playful melodies and a charming sense of colour littering it from start to finish.
