Fine instalments in the British empire of eclectic House talents may not be a new concept these days, but Russ Chimes’ return to the original production front after the success of ‘Back 2 You’ marks a bid to freshen up his country’s reign on the international club scene. Sampling Kathy Brown’s ‘95 hit with the same name and teeming with the same scattered key work and good-time vibes as it’s predecessor, ‘Turn Me Out’ plays out aptly to the forward-thinking take on dance music we have come to associate with Chimes. On the flip, however, Irish nu-house producer provides us with the one-and-only remix for the track, rounding out the release with a display of his signature piano-laden sound.

Having respectively scaled the less saturated ranks of global club culture, British underground stalwarts BICEP unite with Irish nu-house producer Ejeca for a summer-seeking freebie entitled “You”. True to its sub-title, Ejeca’s piano version leads with candid keys and steady grooves throughout, using warm melodic digressions to spark a stern benchmark in this collective’s guise over modern house music. We may not quite be at the season of sun kissed clubbing, but “You” remains a vital aural harmonizer enroute what promises to be an active season for these fine UK talents.
Initially released on vinyl late last year as part of his ‘Krunk’ EP, Ejeca’s hotly discussed and heavily supported ‘Night Rays’ has finally hit the digital market, accompanied by Waze & Odyssey’s take on ‘Riddim’.
Rife with retro vibes and infectious rerunning vocal loops, the ‘Night Rays’ EP takes a piano-driven route within its overtly satisfying melodic substance. Where warm keys and ethnic leads pad out the majority of this Pete Tong-approved release, its consistent energy makes for a sterling landmark release for the Ejeca and Waze & Odyssey alike.
