Gadi Mizrahi – Can’t Stop This Feeling review
Dare we say it, this appears to be Mizrahi’s best work yet. With a past of sultry house tracks on the likes of his own imprint Wolf + Lamb to Matthew Dear’s Spectral Sound, it seems he has surpassed them all with this 4-track wonder on Simple Records. Smooth house beats and flowing rhythms are layered with classic house vocals and groovey basslines.
Whilst the remix from Detroit resident Lee Curtiss on the title track actually slows it down a notch and adds extra intertwining vocals, the original slaves away with a melodic and soulful lead alongside subtle, almost tribal drums with a careful progression that doesn’t enter full swing until the halfway point well worth waiting for.
“Who’s Gonna Love Me Tonight” starts off all minimal with off claps like clockwork until a heavy kick and a wonderfully funky vocal and keys combination comes in, changing the pace to a romantically groove-filled piece. Finally, “Sideshow” is the most pared-down of the lot with whirring backgrounds and simple percussive effects.
