Pepe Bradock gets things off to a classic start this week with a sublime deep house cut from 1999. “Deep Burnt” is a lush epic of sadness and revival, based around an orchestral sample which encompasses a mere four notes. Overall it achieves a kind of restful intensity, carrying the listener into a wistful, slow-motion euphoria. A true gem.
Pick of the bunch this week, however, is the gospel-meets-beatdown house of “Let’s go” which I came across while listening to the recent Detroit Beatdown Special podcast on Resident Advisor. “Let’s go” is a stripped down, old school jam with beats that swing slowly from side to side, gospel-style vocals to add some human presence, and a catchy organ riff that leads the way. Wonderful stuff.
Thanks everyone who tuned in to the live broadcast on Future Music radio or came along to The Drome in Second Life. Enjoy the mix!
