Hoxton Whores Great Stuff Recordings London heroes Hoxton Whores have been doing their thing together for a decade now, but there are no signs of slouching on their hot new EP. Things Happen on the flip channels uplifting '90s euro-house and welds it to seductive funk-fuelled contemporary 4/4 to excellent effect. A cute chime melody provides the main hook, with a dreamy female vocal recalling euphoric classics of yesteryear and a huge bassline doing the damage where it matters. Subtle strings and sidechained pads create a spacious atmosphere, with plenty of clever FX trickery along the way to keep things interesting. The sound of summer is very much here. Female vocalist Terri B joins them for Beat In My Head, a lively bit of house music that's ripe to usher in the Ibiza season ahead. Terri's deep voice serves up a soulful, hypnotic vocal refrain, which the Whores splice between analog bass funk and bright synth stabs. Mysterious, shimmering guitars add texture and drama, with head-nodding bongos completing the compelling blend of sounds.
