12" Vinyl D
As you might expect, all very solid on this sampler.
« Solids » stands as the second major release by De Le Groove. In the wake of Crossovers & Alley Oops, De La Groove gathers here a handful of amazing house producers - that were all welcomed in Paris - onto this 6 tracks vinyl. This release stands as a totem to the label and its very purpose, now let's introduce our major six here : Art Of Tones, Cody Currie (and Joel Holmes), Goddard, Grant Nelson, Pontchartrain and Scott Diaz.
The vinyl opens on A1 - Art Of Tones – So Sweet, a nice and bouncing club groover where rhodes and bass melt together over a strong vocal presence; creating a global fresh feeling. This feeling keeps hold on us with A2 – Scott Diaz – A Quiet Love, a refreshing garage beat thriving over a smooth bassline coated in slick vocals, rhodes chords and a heady gimmick. A-face close on A3 – Cody Currie ft Joel Holmes - As Of Yet. If the freshness is maintained, jazzy parts and complex harmonies clearly takes over this track for a nice journey out on a lounging vibe.
B1 – Grant Nelson – In The Dark goes straight into club's heart with a loud and heavy garage vibe. This one track will be limited to the vinyl edition, and might well smash a few dancefloors at night. B2 – Pontchartrain – Don't Change It Up comes as a vastly sampled track that keeps a high tension with his loads of strings presence, purveying a nice and vast bridge made up by organ patterns. The vinyl closes on B3 – Goddard – Almasti which clearly soften the release with a dreamy track of strong composition, perfectly tailored to enjoy a soft moment out on a sunny afternoon.
