Ghosts by Dan Berkson & James What

The extended, jacking trip that is 'Ghosts' is a strong grooving reduced house track in the purest sense of the phrase. Tough, tight chicago style beats flare and snap as a melancholic and mysterious synth motif dances around the funk-meets-dub bass sequence. All manner of ethereal spoken word passages, uplifting vocal meanderings and cuts are then intertwined in a complex ambiguous narrative that fills the room with the ghosts of house and soul music gone by... Understated, uncompromising and super functional!

Next up the boys lay down a tribal house groover, full of thick keys, richly embellished drums and spiritual vibes a-plenty. No doubt first jammed out during one of their long studio sessions, the live feel and flowing arrangement opens up beautifully with soft key flourishes and tender vocal hooks.
