Orlando B. – Beneath the Surface EP
Yore returns with the 3rd release on the Yore Limited series. 300 limited copies in green transparent vinyl. A beauty musically and for the eye. Orlando B. favours the kind of funky and raw-sounding techno that flourished during the late-’90s and early-’00s and so naturally invests his maiden voyage on the Yore imprint with the same kind of classic soul that renders that earlier era’s sound so appealing. ” Beneath the Surface ep ” largely focuses on warm house grooves. “A Feeling” dishes out eight minutes of classic deep house that’s also as funky as hell. A subtle Latin percussion vibe sneaks in at the beginning but quickly enough the tune rolls out a warm house strut that dominates thereafter; piano sprinkles, lush strings, and a crisp, hi-hat-spun groove give the tune added style and flair, as does the insistence of the titular vocal sample. “Esoteric” digs into a steamy, bass-driven house beat that’s both raw and funky, then slathers it with a synth solo that squeals with delight, while “New York Tale” smoothens its techno core with warm chords and delicious house swing. “MJ12″ is the coolest and most techy cut on this diverse four cut ep. Orlando B. sprinkling billowing dub chords and a spoken voice sample over a rock-solid tech-house base that will go straight under your skin, when it hits you on the dancefloor. 300 copies left still. Go grab yours before it’s too late.
