After appearances on Local Talk and Large Wax, UK House duo Purple Velvet elect to go the DIY route with the launch of their own Secret Reels label. Whilst Chris James and Lee Dear haven't revealed whether Secret Reels will be an outlet solely for Purple Velvet material or it will see them try their hands at curation, this debut drop from the pair sets a high standard. The lead track on All My Days sees Purple Velvet working with Scottish/American vocalist Amy Lyon on a nicely swung little deep house number that you can easily envisage soundtracking the sun setting on the Croatian coastline. It's well matched by the dusty, deep vibes of "Lost In Vienna" which is worthy of release on Wolf Music, and talking of that lupine London label the B Side finds their artist Frits Wentink turning in a ruffed up remix of "All My Days" that's a veritable highlight. Quintessentials man Borrowed Identity rounds out the 12" with a more musically driven remix to offer yet another vibe.
