Preston's Cottam continues on his winning streak, following up great releases recently on Versatile, his eponymous imprint and the impressive Ruff Draft edits series. Following on in the style of the latter, Ele Records "is dedicated to sourcing and sharing dusty, sample based music inspired by the rich soundscape of early hip hop and house productions." Cottam's trademark sample based house is back on this release. Delving into his box of records to produce some sample heavy cuts, slowed down to a sexy shuffling groove. On the A side is an edit of Dom Um Romao's legendary "Escravos de Jo" from 1976, first popularized by Joe Claussell and Kerri Chandler at the turn of the millennium. On the flip is an edit of Nena Love, a London-based singer of Ghanaian origin most renowned for her 1978 album Disco Documentary: where "I'm In Love" originally appeared. Cottam's edit distilling the groove into is raw element and its real saucy!
