monsieur-du-jour, chevals, graces us with his presence for an ep of exquisitely produced edits. la bouteille opens things up with a rhythmic workout combined with filtered melodies that erupt into a summery piano driven jam. under your command then comes in with the classic golden era disco feel, tied together with a shuffling beat. flip it over and fairy tales takes you into 80s boogie territory with those squelchy synths & irresistible vocals. closing out the ep chevals brings out the peak time, slap bass, disco stomper in croisades, complete with sultry sax licks, sure to do damage to any dancefloor its set before.
by all rights, the name chevals might be a new one on a few folks out there. but, we encourage you not to confuse pedigree with quality of output because with chevals the two go hand in hand. his first two outings on homage & better listen records soared to the top of the sales charts and we re stoked to finally release our 10inch with him to help keep the momentum for what is sure to be a successful run for the french beat-smith.
the mysterious parisian chevals joins better listen for their eighth outing, after making his debut on nycs homage with a global affair. his effort on blr is conceptual, taking the scalpel strictly to japanese disco soul material and adding that sweet bump like only the french can.
the second release on homage comes from chevals, and once again the vibe is quintessential deep house infused with more than a little soul stew. -see you when i git my heart broken- has funk licks aplenty to keep the party popping, while -please don t- sees that as some kind of challenge to up the ante with even more sassy samples and sizzling strings. -tres racas- finds the chevals getting a little more choppy in the drum department, and then -big man- finishes the ep off with a raucous african atmosphere to set the club alight.
