Ruff Stuff - Uzuri - Galapagos

Deep Chicago House recommended

Ruff Stuff – Who Is (Rough Recordings)

Another blast of oldschoolish peaktime house has recently been spread by Rough Recordings. This time it’s the Italian duo Ruff Stuff that contributes the 9th installment with their “Who Is” EP. Friends of classically driving club sounds between Chicago and UK house should defo take a listen to this 4-tracker containing three originals plus a remix by Andrea Calabrese. As a common state of aesthetics ruffness marks the way of sound in here with straight forwarding rhythms, stomping drums and spicy synthie stabs combined with some feel-good floor energy through floating pads and chord arrangments as well as soulfully uplifting vocal cuts. Gets the party started!

Old Shady Grady and the Neighborhood Characters – The Wildnerness Sessions Pt.2 – Tales from Caturday (Uzuri Recordings)

Slightly weird and jazzfunkin’ deep house is brought to us by Old Shady Grady and the Neighborhood Characters with “The Wildnerness Sessions Pt.2 – Tales from Caturday” on Uzuri Recordings. Away from the dictates of straight beats and floor functionality the flow in here is set onto a more contemplative sound with complex structures and lots of musical substance. Tricky rhythm constructs between afrobeat and discofunk meet layered jazzy harmonies with strange tinkling melodies here and there accompanied by some cool vocal work-outs and build these classy moody Detroit beatdown grooves for the head nodding society. Dope stuff!

Ryan Brokenshire / Mike Dreg / Peter Croce – Montanita (Galapagos Records)

Integrative multi-stylistics house and disco fusion is what maybe gives an appropriate hint on the sounds Ryan Brokenshire, Mike Dreg and Peter Croce produced for the Detroit based Galapagos Records. The EP “Montanita” is the label’s second step on the mission to create dance music without samples and has hereto been recorded by a band set with Ryan Brokenshire on pianos, organs and synthesizers, Mike Dreg on drums and Peter Croce contributing some bass guitar grooves. The result is a surprising EP with lots of warmth and hand-made rhythms and melodies. Modern deep house grooves meet classically vibing piano spheres and organic drum fills while vintage disco funk encounters lo-fi video game organs. This a kind of refreshing curiosity with sunshine beach music for cheerful island living.
