The sixth release on the excellent Parisian imprint My Love Is Underground comes from Inner Sense - aka French producer Henri Fontaine - who serves up only his second ever solo release (his first was back in 2006!) Sprawled across the A-Side you'll find "Lowdown", a jam that brings to mind the output of New York house dons Masters At Work (indeed look closely at the centre of this record and you'll see the totally appropriate inscribing "1993 forever"). Swirling chords combine with a thumping kick, stuttering keys and, of course, a killer vocal wail for a slice of what can only be described as Proper House Music. "Wanna Dub With U" opens proceedings on the flip with the kind of thumping bass drum and funk-infused skipping hats that would make it a snug fit in the Kerri Chandler back catalogue and, again, the vocals are absolutely gorgeous. Finally, "Rawllin'" wraps up the EP on a more stripped back yet equally groovy tip. Limited to 500 copies on rather fetching 180g orange vinyl - essential.
