Sean Brosnan – Sat Jam review
Sean Brosnan set up Needwant Records as an outlet for a sound that lingers between house and disco. A feel that naturally oozes from the producer, his debut production on the imprint freely runs a subtle line between the two sensibilities with groovy effect. “Sat Jam”, his first production on the imprint, layers guitar licks and short female vocals on top of a dubbed house groove. Old school piano parts up the energy whilst surging congas provide the ass shaking fuel.
Opening the release though, is veteran to the modern disco scene, Ray Mang whose remix accentuates the piano parts, morphing the track into a true, classic, old school house anthem. An original member of seminal dance act Block 16, Mang displays the deft production skills that has seen him get picked up for a forthcoming release on fellow disco trailblazers, DFA. Canadian producer Eddie C turns in the second remix, stripping the original down into a slow, dubby groove. Not allowing us to become too comfortable, Eddie follows his long and teasing opening section with the kind of upfront break kicks that have seen him turn into one of the latest edit heroes on the scene.
