David Amo, Julio Navas & Robert Gaez
This Is True House EP
Great Stuff Recordings
Spanish duo Amo & Navas team up with erstwhile David Penn collaborator and Nervous artist Robert Gaez for two romps through the realm of tech-infused house music on this new EP.
The title track This Is True House, is a purist's ride through percussive groove that snatches elements from golden age tribal, new school sexed-up techno and pure house rhythm. No frills, no excessive builds, no gimmicks; just straight up body music that's purely designed to move the floor. Isn't that what house was about it the first place anyway? Before the arena tours, the celebrities, the pop charts...
Intense Flavour lands on the flipside with more of a sting in its tail. A funk-driven yet vaguely menacing bassline, big build-ups with twisted effects and FX, big sirens, sexy little shaker and hi-hat patterns and rousing drum fills all blended together in one saucy little package that's a perfectly tougher counterweight to the A-side.
