Having recently made his bow on one hugely respected deep house label, Freerange, Simon Hinter is now ready to debut on another: Quintessentials. The headline attraction of a highly impressive EP is arguably 'Alright!', a chunky, bass-heavy club jam built around chopped-up vocal samples, funk-fuelled guitar riffs, deliciously weighty bass, addictive string sweeps and crunchy drums. KRL remixes, successfully transforming the track into a wonky chunk of Red Rack'em style deep house eccentricity that's as bold as it is ear-catching. Elsewhere, 'Wanna Make Love' combines a bass-heavy house groove and cheery synthesizer melodies with dusty old disco and jazz-funk samples, while 'Club Friday' is a pleasingly positive slab of warming, old school US deep house revivalism.
