There’s a raw, sweaty, back–in–the–day feel to this two–track taster of tracks from Philpot boss Soulphiction’s live set. “Mind & Body” is built around formidably loose and organic sounding disco drums, complimented by a familiar extended vocal sample from a stone cold disco classic. Yet it also has warm keys and just the right amount of deep house pads. The results are electrifying, offering just the right balance between disco release and contemporary house chops. “Mind & Body”, on the other hand, is deep house all the way – think undulating grooves, wide–eyed elecric piano chords, hissing cymbals and the most delicious “wet” electric bassline you’ll hear all month. Stellar stuff, all told.
