Review: Adeen Records is back with it's follow up to Alton Miller's "More Positive Things" with Chez Damier's parisian outfit French Connection. This Chinese only import five song Ep features remixes from Nicholas, Chez's Panarama Bar club banger remix, and Beijing, China's production team Camille. The B-side features "Queen Of The Elephants" remixed by Jef K, and a scorching edit of "It Ain't right" guaranteed to set the dancefloor ablaze.
Review: The pleasingly unpredictable Adeen label returns with another record of outstanding and distinctive quality. Scott Hess is an emergent talent, originally from Detroit but now based in Bangkok, who channels the heat and clamour of the Thai capital. The result is a funkified strain of house with rich synths and some satisfyingly organic licks. "Redlight" is the heavy lifter, all muscular bass synths and a nagging, twitchy groove, while "Circle Of Funk" brings a more introspective tone embellished by some gorgeous slap bass. "The Rhythm" pushes a more steamy kind of funk that nods to the Detroit house grandmasters.
Review: It's been a while since we last heard from Nico Lahs, the accomplished Italian house producer with drops on Rawax, Ovum, Poker Flat and many more in his back catalogue. Now he's shoring up on US label Adeen with a double pack of seriously bumping, soulful joints that point to a hefty amount of work refining and defining his sound. The drums skip and skitter with a gorgeous, live looseness, while the plush Rhodes and synth lines drip with full-fat warmth and funk. This is a deep rooted sound that will have fans of 2000Black, Mark de Clive-Lowe and Warren Harris all nodding in satisfaction.
