Entrance - PMH - Finitude

Tresor resident Marcel Heese launches his label as PMH, a collaboration with Spanish producer P.E.A.R.L. ‘Entrance’ is a deep, swirling techno affair, steeped in the legacy of Chain Reaction’s cavernous dub and Function’s doubled-up claps. Sleeparchive provides a remix on the flip, but instead of his usual bleepy sound, he merely toughens up the kicks and adds an extra layer of jagged percussion that guarantees maximum impact.

Code of Silence (Remix) - Lil Dap - King Underground

Superb Lewis Parker rerub of Group Home veteran's track, interpolating elements of 'Livin' Proof' (deliciously) and laying down some seriously lambent jazzadelia over the rock-solid beats. As ever with Parker, excess to requirements and thus absolutely spot-on. 

When the People Cheer - The Roots - Okay Player

Yes, yes we know, but for the purposes of this particular page we are not focusing on the title track, it’s the b-side ‘Tomorrow’ (feat Raheem DeVaughn) that we’re most interested in. There’s nothing complicated about it, nothing clever, nothing groundbreaking either for that matter. It’s just a beautiful, uplifting track moored around a simple piano hook, slo-mo hip-hop beats and DeVaughn’s super-soulful, spirited vocal.

 

For You - Mobley’s Groove - Rock Sucks

Disco gets its revenge with a reissue of The Mobley Gang’s super-rare, electro disco moment from 1983, ‘Groove For You’.
