A fresh addition to the Anjunadeep stable, the highly regarded Belgian pairing of Jean Vanesse and Thomas Sohet, aka Spirit Catcher, make a bold entrance with the brilliant “Black Pitch EP”. Having graced seminal labels 2020Vision, Moodmusic and Freerange over their 10 year career, Spirit Catcher have continued to push a deep, funk-informed groove. Incorporating melodic 80s vibes and modern electronic influences, the “Black Pitch EP” showcases their dynamic sound at its finest. Setting the tone perfectly, title track “Black Pitch” comes straight out of the blocks with a dark, immersive baseline, before delicate melodies and rising pads combine for a swirling crescendo – tied together with an infectious vocal hook. With hallmarks of a classic house track, “Vintage Point” teases a rising techno-influenced groove and builds to a discordant climax. Taking things deeper still, “Miss U Right Now” rounds off the EP. Crisp percussion and a rolling groove lay the foundation for a slow burning jam, complete with hypnotic bass stabs and another spoken word refrain.
As the release date for Anjunadeep05 creeps closer, keep yourself from freaking out by buying this latest release. Cooler than the other side of the pillow. Goes great with a tall glass of Newman’s Own lemonade.
Oh yes. Out today on Bunny Tiger records is the latest compilation selection from Sharam Jey and the rest of his crew. If you like to shake your booty, this one is for you. As much as the word “swag” is over played these days, I can’t help but lose myself to Sammy W & Alex E‘s latest bomb every time. That bassline is just too goddamn fonkay. Really looking forward to seeing those dudes tear the club up at some point, doubt it would suck. Below is the entire compilation mixed together for your listening pleasure. Ladies, be warned this may make you overwhelmingly horny.
We always knew that Fehrplay could take it real deep. This new remix is a prime example. The vibes are dark and ominous. I feel like doing something naughty. Dammit I can’t wait to play this in a pitch black basement club and see the reaction. I’m sure it will involve some sexual behavior.
