Rejected’s Dusty House series of EPs has easily become one of the most highly adorned Tech House instalments to date. But after a sterling series of offerings from the likes of Nic Fanciulli and Daniell Dubb, the labels ringmaster and enigmatic Dutch club bandit Joris Voorn returns to the driving seat to follow-up the original 2009’s standard setting EP ‘Room 1’. Three-years down the line, Voorn’s impeccable ear for the imperfect House cut remains inherently superior.
Where ‘Spank The Maid’ places an entourage of inspired grooves alongside the all too familiar resonance of Voorn’s decisive vocal sample work, it’s astounding transitions and consistent energy work wonders. Add the sharp riffs and disjointed chords that make up ‘Goodbye Fly’ and Room 6 remains as crucial to the realms of trend-dodging House as its predecessor did several years before.
