Rhode & Brown - Joyride EP (Toy Tonics)

Continuing on the house vibe, I've been sent some cracking tracks of late with one of the real standouts being  the 'Joyride EP' from Germany's Rhode & Brown.

The latest release on Toy Tonics (the sublabel of the legendary Gomma stable), the EP features 4 cuts of quality house, my personal fave being Kyodai's mix on 'Under Your Spell'. I wasn't surprised to find out that Kyodai, a name I keep hearing at the minute, is in fact the alter ego of Wagon Cookin', another long-time SLL favourite. Kyodai is currently releasing on Sweden's Local Talk, a label that can do no wrong right now.

The EP is brimming with classic minor-key chord progressions, old skool piano riffs, rolling basslines and crisp percussion. It's the attention to detail in the production that's the real sell here, with the tracks showcasing the 90s nu garage sound that is so in vogue. A wicked blend of the old and new, an EP with a fresh take on deep house.

Current support from all the big hitters including Kerri Chandler, Osunlade and Nick Holder.

The 'Joyride EP' is out on 6th May via Toy Tonics - grab it from Juno Download here. |
