Pepe Bradock gets things off to a classic start this week with a sublime deep house cut from 1999. “Deep Burnt” is a lush epic of sadness and revival, based around an orchestral sample which encompasses a mere four notes. Overall it achieves a kind of restful intensity, carrying the listener into a wistful, slow-motion euphoria. A true gem.
Elsewhere, Kerri Chandler delivers the weighty bassline of “Back to raw” and introduces chiptune house to the world with “OPL-3”. Romanian producer The Model also features heavily, with the electro-styled “You” and the warm analogue refrains of “New Life New Love”. Dating back to 1987, “Essence of a dream” is an early house track with a mysterious atmosphere, wandering acid bassline, and a strong hint of poetry.
Pick of the bunch this week, however, is the gospel-meets-beatdown house of “Let’s go” which I came across while listening to the recent Detroit Beatdown Special podcast on Resident Advisor. “Let’s go” is a stripped down, old school jam with beats that swing slowly from side to side, gospel-style vocals to add some human presence, and a catchy organ riff that leads the way. Wonderful stuff.
Art’s new place in Second Life was still being built when we went to air, so we relocated to The Drome for this show. Thanks Eliza for letting us in at such short notice! The mix also went out live on Future Music radio. Art couldn’t make it onto the airwaves after me, so I carried on for a bit longer and followed this show with an impromptu electro set! Thanks everyone who came along or tuned in. Enjoy the mix!
