V.A.Depth Sifters EP
We are serious about our music here at Future Reactions. You can tell that from our first vinyl release, the Depth Sifters EP. Featuring cult producer Rick Wade, Detroit veteran Norm Talley, up-and-coming newcomer Cris J and the talent that is Satore, we think it is quite an introduction. It is Cris J, however, who has the honour of leading the way with Around Philly, a sumptuously soulful slab of deepness steeped in the traditions of house music, just the way we like it. Remember the name. Wade, by contrast, has long since made his name on the back of an endless list of must-have releases for the likes of Track Mode, Moods & Grooves and his own imprint Harmonie Park. He’s in fine fettle here too with Clizias Theme, a cut imbued with the kind of genuine emotional content and quality we have come to expect from the man. Norm Talley’s brand of beatdown and house has long been a favourite with collectors and connoisseurs alike. His handsome contribution here, Str8 Housin, is exactly that and some, owing much to the musical heritage of his home city. Young Spanish artist Satore, meanwhile, completes the line-up and continues to impress yet again with the infectious and supremely funky Moodment (Upstreet Mix).
