Crispin J Glover - "Prospect Place"
Dean Zepherin - "Betty"
Review: No Fuss Records returns with the 2nd release in their vinyl series with another quality 3 tracker. On the 2nd outing we see the likes of veteran producer Crispin J Glover, Dean Zepherin & label owners Saison. A1 is a remix of Crispin's "The Long Goodbye" from Saison. The duo offer their trademark sound of bumpy beats and jazzy riffs. A2 is Crispin's "Prospect Place". A song that travels through the deeper, darker, and disco sides of House. B3 sees the likes of Dean Zepherin's "Betty" classic feel good House Music at its best.
Review: The 3rd release in No Fuss's vinyl series offers the likes of Saison, Risk Assessment, & Natasha Kitty Katt. A1 is a deep and dirty number from Saison titled "Till The Day I Die". Jackin' beats and a bumpy bassline complimented by a Juno 60 synth & sampled vocals. A2 is a deeper track from House artist Risk Assessment with sampled vocals and bluesy piano titled "I Don't Understand". B1 "The Riff" is classic Saison at its best. Their jazzy pianos, driving bass and swinging beats never disappoint the dance floor. B2 is Glitterbox resident and rising DJ Natasha Kitty Katt. Katt offers her unique disco touch of cut up samples and filtered drums to create a feel good disco house slammer.
Review: No Fuss's 4th release offers some top talent from across the globe. A1 starts with London's The Journey Men who create a deep, driving, moody track with a touch of soul. A2 see's Chicago's Local Options with their trade mark sound of Jackin Deep House. On the flip B1 is Saison's "A Good Thang". A feel good Deep House number with guitar, vocals, live keys, driving beats and bumpy bass. B2 sees the likes of veteran producer Cpen. Chris offers a classy joint that mixes the elements of Jazz, UK Garage & Deep House.
Review: The first vinyl offering on any label needs to be something pretty special, and evidently No Fuss Records haven't forgotten that golden rule of releasing. Who better to draft than Saison, a duo with an established reputation for soulful, groove-fulled deep house that's guaranteed to make an impression on the floor? Probably nobody, hence the decision. 'I Need Ya' is a classic vocal workout, brass stabs and looped, filtered lyrics clearly positioning the track as a good times anthem. There's more than a little chug underpinning the Werkshy remix of 'Something Made Me', which stomps its way into a male chorus that should thrust fists skywards. 'Senor Blues' is more of a journey in comparison to its siblings, gradually unveiling its pianos and opening the arrangement up as the track expands from understated beginnings to room-filling proportions.
