The newly minted Brighton label Black Key Records follows that stellar Andy Ash record with some new material from the excellent Chamboche. The London based producer is fresh from releasing Smoke Screen, a quite beefy turnout on regular haunt Under The Shade, and the two tracks on this Metacoma EP find Chamboche moving further away from the disco flecked territory of his early material into the deep house murk. The way lead track "Mello" rigidly slips into action doesn't prepare you for how delightfully rich in smoky colour the track is in full flight, with typical attention to melodic detail. Fear Of Flying regular BLM drops two remixes of this track, with the "Lofi" version a particular effective revision, all stripped down rattling drums and thick bass line. Do check the last track "Show It" which demonstrates Chamboche's talent for crafting dubbier excursions through house deepness - just wait for those chords to come filtering through.
