Emotion II Emotion is Portland duo Avalon Kalin (Finesse) and Rafael Fauria (Miracles Club) that blend Garage & Deep House live with gritty samples, FM synthesis, analog hardware, swing and passion. Looking back to the golden age of House Music and pushing it forward as a live art form. Inspired by the best of the 90’s club sounds, they deliver here their first EP full of DEEP HOUSE KILLERS.
Entitled “EIIE I”, it kicks off with the intense “Feels good” taking things into classic mid 90’s new york territory, straight into a garage sounding bassline, looped vocal intro. We can clearly hear the sound of the E-mu Sp1200 & mpc 60! In the same vein on A2, we got the epic “I can’t hep myself”.
On the flip side, with “I need you”, they’re creating an all-enveloping atmosphere that combined the futuristic groove of the late 80’s detroit scene packed up with some R&B vocal energy. It’s a devastating catchy track full of detuned organs & chopped up vocals as if you get the dub of an original track that finally never existed, maybe only in the creators’ mind!
And to end, “Work” is the sort of feel good house music we used to hear in the early 90’s courtesy of Mr Kerri Chandler, Mood II Swing & M.A.W. - swinging beats, a sax & a disco bass: Come on & dance! [info from label]
