Reviews: Chocky, Urban Force, Cliff Lothar

Deep Chicago House recommended

Chocky – Secret Voyagers (Secret Reels)

Groove and deepness between dub and jazz influences is what Chocky worked out once more on his “Secret Voyagers” EP that recently came out on Secret Reels. With appearances on labels like Disconnected, Big Bait Records, Flumo LTD or Audio Parallax Records before the producer from London already set some well-received signposts on his musical directions through modern house and goes on with more warm and dopey dance convenient electronics. Crispy rhythm shuffles and sub bass driven arrangements from noodling to bouncing with deep chords fleeing through soft delays build the lane for Choky to carry his atmospheric, sometimes mystical moods in here and make this become a classy modern deep house EP for various sound exposure purposes. And as additional ear candy an airy summer jam remix by young Danish producer Paxton Fettel is also featured… Big Ups!

Urban Force – The Outer Space Connections (Ornaments)

Another pack of floor dub goodness just came out on Ornaments with “The Outer Space Connections” EP by Urban Force aka Daniel Stefanik and Chet. After some releases for Instabil and Kyoto_Digital the duo teams up again for some trippy and atmospheric club works between Detroit techno and transcendental space electronics. With a keen sense for dynamics and progression on the production site all titles achieve the predicate of reduced intensity that is created by dry pumping and swirling drums under dense sound waves from thrilling and warm harmonics, gently floating white noises and sizzling, bubbling fx collages. The music in here never rests, is permanently evolving, full of playful subtlety and provides the right soundtrack for contemplative relax sessions as well as motion stimulating moments on sweaty sensitive morning floors. Space travel advice!

Cliff Lothar – Old Jams Die Hard #1 (Riverette)

A refreshing warehouse rave and Chicago acid fusion is what Cliff Lothar presents on his EP “Old Jams Die Hard #1” that recently appeared on the Madrid based imprint Riverette. Classical roughness and warm analogue distortion mark the way in here and have also done on Cliff Lothar’s output on Viewlexx, Skudge White or Omnidisc before. But this time his playful way to combine heavy drum programmings, weird acid bubblings and funky freakin’ vocal cuts add an extra portion of drive and floor escalation potential to his productions. Welcome the raw side of underground house music. Whoop stuff!
