The next release on Kulture Records comes by way of Darlington based DJ & producer James Burton, it also features a remix of the from the largely talented 'Inxec'. James' House of Worship EP features plenty of personality, upfront beats and underground flavour and keeps the bar set high for our future releases.
Opening the EP is the title track 'House of Worship', a driving, electronic track with a modular feel to it. It is essentially built on rough-edged harmonic elements that bare a gritty vibe to them, running with purpose through that grey area between 'Acid' and 'Rave'; rounding itself off nicely with strong, punchy drums, a self-explanatory vocal hook and crystal clear percussion.
Next up, 'Rave Tapes' makes no secret of what to expect from the outset. Another racy and melody-centric rush of nostalgia; again with 90's influence throughout and hard, gritty, modular vibes that are pretty much trip-inspiring and made for the deepest, darkest corners of the party. James' use of sound modulation across the release is nothing short of masterful and shows an intense understanding of emotive sound.
Finishing up is the Inxec remix of 'Rave Tapes', a more conventional and current shade of Tech House but retains an almost poignant element of mind-bending sound inspired by its predecessors. If you ever needed a good example of how to put your own stamp on a remix without losing too much of the original inspiration then look no further, this track has it all.
