Since making his debut five years ago, Steve Darko has rightly earned a reputation for the quality of his quirky, funk-fuelled workouts, many of which add foreboding, big room sounds and eccentric musical flourishes to bass-beavy tech-house grooves. You'll find more of the same - and plenty else besides - on debut album Midnight Swim, an excitable, mind-altering journey through twisted but accessible peak-time house. Fans and newcomers alike will lap up cuts such as 'Smooth Like Butter', acid-fired Narko hook-up 'Red' and the sleazy, sub-heavy growl of VNSSA collaboration 'Hypnotized', while the album's frequent diversions - see bubbly ambient/electro cut 'Eucildean Dreams', the deep house warmth of Claude Von Stroke co-production 'How Many Times' and the deliciously drowsy 'Eelated' [sic] - are often equally as impressive.
