Guy Johnson brings the Lo-Fi House music sound to Closer To Truth with the ‘Escapism EP’
The three tracks on the ‘Escapism EP’ are simply labelled R1, 2, & 3. R1 is a mellow disco infused stomp, the warm up to R2, a classic Closer To Truth style incorporeal Garage groove. R3 picks up the tempo for some opaque Deep House that will get your head floating in the sky!!!
Alex Agore has a new 17 track album out on Closer To Truth. From the opening pianos and funky disco licks of the title track through to diamonds the likes of Frankie Knuckles style shuffle of ‘Run Away’ and the dreamy soul of ‘Go On Your Way’, Closer To Truth is a blissful cruise through the purest and finest of House & Garage production, A sprinkling of 80’s groove, some 90’s shine and plenty of house music love and smoothly crafted beats. We adore this LP by Alex Agore!!!
Love your House Music Funky, Jazzy, and Psychedelic? Then Nicolas Meyer has four perfect jams to fill that void for you. His ‘Devil Cell’ EP is filled with sunshine soaked hazy grooves like the title track and tracks like the off-kilter ‘Always Drunk People’
‘Pornonaut’ sounds like Miles Davis jamming with a Digital Audio workstation and ‘The Folding Man’ transports us to a smoke-filled Jazz club with it’s spaced out swirls and deep bassline. This is a very fine EP indeed. Get it from the Closer To Truth imprint from Beatport 29/08/16 and 12/09/16 on all good download stores
The bass o meter is off the scale today. We’ve got some awesome House, Bass n Breaks for you. All these tracks are out in the download stores, most have buy links in the soundcloud players, otherwise just google their names, lets proceed……..
