Review: Everyone knows that no one parties harder than Glaswegians and although The Arches may be gone, it's not stopped the talent the city doing what they do. One such example is the Glasgow Underground label which does what is says on the tin - providing good underground dance music. Their latest release, "Narciso" by Raffa FL, features three cuts of tough, rough and slammin' house and techno, perfect afterhour's parties all over Glasgow and beyond.
Kool With Me (Antonio Del Prete remix) - (6:20) 122 BPM

Come Closer (Dast (Italy) remix) - (8:11) 123 BPM
Review: Raffa FL has clearly been listening to a lot of Hypercolour records. "Kool With Me", in particularly, sounds like a slightly deeper take on the bass-heavy UK deep house sound pushed forward by the likes of Huxley. It's well produced and rises and falls in the all the right places, riding a snare-heavy groove that just never stops (not literally, of course, that would be ridiculous). "Come Closer", on the other hand, reaches for the box marked "rave revival", whipping up a late night frenzy on the back of a bold bassline and some gargantuan pianos. Of the trio of accompanying remixes, it's DJ Nav's jazzier, deeper, bongo-laden tweak of "Kool With Me" that most impresses.
