When it comes to infusing deep house with elements of jazz, soul and Detroit techno, few have as good a track record as veteran Kiwi producer Recloose. It's perhaps unsurprising, then, that Spirit Knows, his latest EP for pal Will Saul's Aus Music imprint, is pretty darn tasty. The title track, featuring soulful vocalist MaraTK, sits somewhere between his classic work for Planet E (think "Ain't Changin" in particular) and the sort of organic, musically expansive deep house more often associated with soulful house producers such as Phil Asher. The producer's Motor City influences come to the fore on the spacey broken house of "No I Don't", while "Ezrakh-Georomancer" is a spoken word-boasting chunk of New Jersey garage influenced jazz-house smoothness.
