Review: Warehouse Music does exactly what is says on the tin, time and time again. Now Mella Dee's label welcomes Leo Pol for four straight up but characterful house bangers. 'Priviet' gets the party started with its old school piano chords and boisterous kick drums, then 'Xeniouski' slips into a trippy techno vibe with bustling breakbeats and dark vocal samples. The hyper speed 'You Know What I Want' fires synths out of a machine gun and layers up paranoid bass while closer 'A Base De Kush' is a super slick and stripped back hypnotic techno roller with insistent drums and warm, gooey pads
Review: Mella Dee's Warehouse Music doesn't try to be smart or clever, but it does bang, and what more can you ask for from a dance producer? The title of his latest suggests he was in a particularly direct mood when putting these tracks together and so it proves: "Techno Belter" is built on big, bulky drums with prickly synth details, and "Silver Street" has wonky chords bringing an inebriated feel to the cantering kicks below. Floatation Device does a great job of sprinkling in some cosmic dust on his mix of "Jack U Later" and "Stack Select" is pure Jeff Mills minimalism. Great stuff.
Review: Mella Dee's much loved and hugely impactful Warehouse Music label is back with more of its big room bangers from the boss himself. "Sidney Street" is pure bait, with a naughty bassline that harks back to an old school garage sound and has fist pumping vocals, while "Dev Green" layers in cantering techno kicks and haunting pads for a more spooky vibe. There's then a more high speed but just as kicking groove on "Eccy Road" which is hyper speed, paranoid and infectious. The clipped techno funk on "Copley Road" closes out a very versatile and useful EP.
