Review: It's been a while since we had a sesh with DJ Monchan, since late 2017 to be precise, but he's making up for lost time with this super smooth four track floor burner. Deeply dug, cleverly layered and rearranged and tailored for the dance, each cut tickles a different corner of the soul; "Heart Breaks" brings serious dollops of slimy, sleazy bass under sultry lyrics, "Feel The Groove" is all about those heavenly cascading scat vocals, "Party Down" whirls and stuns with a fiery freestyle jazz funk swoon while "Can't Lose The Feeling" brings us back home on the most chic of touches. Time to glide away on those strings.
Review: Chicago OG Fields has gone next level so many times he's now on the "17th Level" courtesy of Monchan's hot-to-trot Dailysessions stable. Two originals, two remixes, four stunning stripped-back gems in total; "17th Level" is a perky jazz party piece with a sprightly off-beat riff while "Surely It Will" lowers its head and gets wavy in the rippling synth washes. Monchan provides the remixes with added chunk and shuffle. Sublime.
Review: Few artists have taken us to heaven quite as much as Larry Heard. The blueprint setter who remains as relevant and resonant now as he did in 86 makes an appearance on Daily Session in dub and edit form. Mesmerising, simple but shining with soul "Heaven" has Heards' fingerprints all over it (sorry) Flip for treatment from fellow pioneer Jordan Fields (slick synths and jacking) and Daily Session's Monchan (New Jersey organs and a dreamy swing) Heaven sent.
Review: Stone cold edit gold from the man like Danny Krivit. Tagged up with Joey Madonia, the pair deliver two blisteringly soulful versions. "Give It Up" hits us smack dab in the heart with its gutsy instrumentation, floating harmonies and raw sense of funk. Meanwhile on the flip Joey switches up "Please Come Home" with a very neat instrumental transformation that retains the big backing vocals. Don't sleep on this.
