After first setting tongues wagging on 12" last month (as part of Lohouse's Townhousemusic series), the Deep Flag EP makes it to digital. For those seeking interesting, off-kilter deep house, it should be an essential purchase. All five tracks are suitably deep, delivering the twin attractions of raw, fuzzy beats and warm, inviting chords. Yet there's a refreshing eccentricity and willingness to experiment that's so often lacking elsewhere. Contrast, for example, the low-slung chords and chugging rhythms of "Beautiful Place", with the intricate music box melodies and head-nodding downtempo beats of "Rosa Road". Or, for that matter, the quirky deep house funk of "9 Im Kanal" and jaunty revivalist dub-house of the excellent "A Groove".
