Deep House Review : Tomson - Waiting EP (forthcoming on Illusion Recordings)

The vibe

This latest four-tracker from the Northern boys at Illusion Recordings is serious, driving, old skool deep house business. 'Waiting' features a killer, uplifting synth hook which'll have you rocking the floor into the early hours, with 'Washerman's Deep Chord Remix' tightening the beats even more with some classic Detroit-esque rhythms.

There's more of the same on 'The Drug Dealer & The Bookmaker', with one massive exception - an acid bassline that would make Josh Wink blush. Finally the EP rounds-out with John Dimas on remix duty who offers-up a funky techno take on the original.

Check out 'The Drug Dealer...' on the first edition of the SLL Nouse Mix series here.

Sounds like

...Stimming in the earlier days, or anything from any of the MoTown house heavyweights.

Serving suggestion

Best taken in the wee small hours, preferably as you hit your second or third wind.

Did you know?

Tomson and label co-boss Tom Craven lived down the road from each other in Manchester, only realising when Tomson sent his demo over to Illusion. Check out the interview with the label's head honchos on Australia's Pulse Radio here.

The 'Waiting EP' is out soon on Illusion Recordings |
