Ponty Mython is a good fit for Better Listen, a fledgling deep house label that has so far delivered the goods. The imprint's love of jazzy, musically rich workouts built around dusty old samples matches the Russian's long-held production ethos and shines through loud and clear on quirky, marimba-laden opener "Checkmate". No doubt the Better Listen crew was also delighted with the rolling, life-affirming vibe of "Ekueseni", a kind of Afro-disco/deep house hybrid that's as atmospheric and groovy as they come, and the jaunty, guitar solo-laden cheeriness of Afrobeat-goes-house shuffler "Breakchu". We'd also wager that they signed the EP based on the brilliant title track, which is little less than a hedonistic chunk of spiraling disco-house brilliance.
