Hailing from Manchester, Si'Ke DJs have the unique honour of being the first to release on Say Ahh!, the new label from house legends Marc Kinchen and Scottie Deep. On listening to the EP it seem to be a shrewd piece or A&R from the duo; the original mix of "Safe House" showcases Si'Ke DJs to have a great ear for tumbling percussion and stripped back jack tracks, while the "Deep Dub" that accompanies does exactly what it says on the tin, adding some soulful piano and Chicago referencing synth strings to the delicate vocal sample of the original. On the flipside, "Say What!" offers a similarly accomplished take on the New Jersey sound, with delicate organs combining with solid kicks, while the track's dub mix delivers another stellar offering from the pair, teasing out its vocal sample with undulating chords and a piano melody as deep as they come.
