Powerplay: Chesus a.k.a. Earl Jeffers – Jump (Original Mix) (4 Lux Black) // 27.11.2014

Alongside fellow Welshman The Organ Grinder, Chesus has become a bellwether for Gerd’s 4lux, rolling classic house themes in the dirt before serving them up. Two of Elevation’s four tracks are sample-heavy and discofied, the kind of thing you’d maybe hear at peak-time in The Box at Ministry Of Sound, while the others are snarling 4 AM house. “Jump” is typical of the former, riding on a set of granite-heavy kicks before a funk slap bass and electric piano sparks the glitterball into life.
