Quick one today as it was tough going back to work after a lovely nice long weekend that was heavily sound tracked by:
The Revenge – Love that will not Die
Everyone knows we're big "The Revenge/6th Borough Project/Clark&Smith" fans around these parts and I've been waiting weeks for this album to come out and it didn’t disappoint.
The album is pure un-adulterated Deep House Music; big bouncy square basses and lashings of Melodies and big disco strings (and crazy spoken word samples) all coupled with bumping drums that are perfectly at home on the sweat dripping walls of a club or the driving rattle of the daily commute.
Stand out tracks for me are The Seed, the 80's synth laden of Crush and the pounding box jams of Dance for you and Tender is the night. Some of the interlude tracks like "Love that will not Die (reprise)"are great and you get an absolutely stomping bonus track in Get Physical to round it all off.
It's available on the Roar Groove website, which is one of my favourite labels lately, with this the Craig Smith LP, and the previous releases from them like their summer mix tape. Physical copies sold out but digital are available.
