FRENCH TRIO RELEASE DEBUT EP ON SSOH SOAKED TO THE BONE WITH SOUL
SSOH is renowned for spotting talent and giving it a platform to release their creations and with French trio The Pimp, hes bang on the money yet again.
Hailing from the south of France, Benedetto & Farina and DMC stalwart, hip-hop and funk aficionado Mr Masta have been around on the music scene for over a decade individually, but in their first outing together, they dish up an unqualified serving of lush, deep, soulful house music.
Everyday, with its Original and Jerk House Connection remix, can easily be described in one word beautiful; a vocal line soaked to the bone in soul, muted pianos and soft bass gently coercing the track onwards.
From its first beat, Popes City is, as the trios name suggests, pimped up to the max. Popping percussion, low-down vocal drops, reverberating bass, stripped back strings and a deep, atmospheric build-up converge to create a stunningly minimalistic nu-disco offering. The Soulful mix kicks off in a similar vein to the original but halfway through completely and utterly gets a huge groove on, giving it a meatier, more pumped-up taste for dance floor connoisseurs.
Final track on the EP Manoo carries on the theme of big, deep bass sounds, this time matching them to tribal percussive elements designed solely to make your body move. Just as much at home in a tech-house set as it would a deep house or tribal one, it perfectly rounds off what is an altogether stunning debut release. With their collective manifesto based on that familiar phrase Dance like no-one is watching The Pimp prove that they do exactly what they say on the tin.
