Originally from South Africa, ESA Mervin Granger may now be a more Glasgow concrete tower than Tabletop Mountain but his grooves are pure house pedigree. From his releases under his Mervin Granger moniker to exclusive remixes for OOFT! The Cape Town Cat was a natural choice for a very 'Summer' shuffling three track jaunt.
Title track Veloore is immediately recognisable from its soft analogue piano chords, amalgamated with a dreamy filtered vocal and a bass line which nods to the acidic side of deep house. On the remix is Erefaan Pearce, a fellow South African who pins soul to every production he lays his hands on. Reworking vocals and bass lines into an infectious frenzy that is almost impossible to resist, Erefaan draws that sunshine feeling from every angle. Think Las Salinas and you are nearly there.
Completing the EP on the flipside is Galaxy, a deep vocal number paying homage to all the Lazy Dog's and Restrictly a digital only excusive that's Cosmic deep house aimed purely at the terrace.
