Depths EP (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: BKR 011. Rel: 06 Apr 15
Deep House
  1. Depths
  2. Trip (Matthew Burton & Kate Rathod remix)
  3. Trip
  4. Right Now
Review: Brighton's Black Key Records has won many underground house fans thanks to superb releases from Iron Curtis, Tom Ellis, Ethyl & Flori and others, and is now back with another tasteful offering from Cecil. The EP is supported by a remix from Berlin's Matthew Burton and Kate Rathod.
Artfuldivision's head honcho, Cecil, hails from the midlands city of Leicester, that has in recent years become less known for it's hosiery and more for it's deep house. Born Thomas Fallon, he has released on 124 Black, Slow Town Records and Moonlight and comes correct here once more.
The title track 'Depths' is a liquid deep house cut that saunters along at an inviting tempo as blurred chords roll next to the groove. Lazy claps add human warmth, a fat bassline makes you want to shake your limbs and overall it's a cuddly, feel good house offering.
His next cut 'Trip' is deeper, more driven by its rubbery kicks, and rawer. The keys here are pleasingly unhinged, a rasping bassline brings plenty of bite to the table and once again the result is an acid-flecked deep house number that puts most to shame. The remix comes by taste making duo Matthew Burton and Kate Rathod, who have released on Fear of Flying and Visionquest amongst others, and have recently played room 1 at the infamous Fabric nightclub. Their stripped back techno sound is showcased once again here, with elastic drums, molten chords and tripped out sound design all making for a slick, synthetic back room cut for the heads.
Finally, 'Right Now' from Cecil is crunchy and expertly reduced, where a shuffling drum clap combo is embellished with jazz motifs, swirling pads and a drunken bass riff that is full of feeling.
Black Key never fails to impress, and the unearthing of this latest talent and his superb deep house offering sets them off in fine stead for 2015.

House Rhythms EP (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: BKR 014. Rel: 19 Jun 17
Deep House
  1. House Rhythms (6:02)
  2. Liberty (7:04)
Review: It's early days for Cinthie, having previously appeared on a split disc with stevn.aint.leavn on Beste Modus earlier this year. Here the emergent artist gets a whole 12" to themselves on the ever steady Brighton label Black Key, and the results are exemplary. From the title alone it shouldn't take too long to work out what "House Rhythms" is all about. With warm key stabs and a classic set of drums there's plenty to grab hold of on this refined slab of deep house, but it's actually "Liberty" that takes the prize. With its Rhodes-esque chords chopping out a simple but deadly riff, this is the one that will get shoulders shaking from the bar to the speaker stack.

Review: After years of releasing quality house EPs, Brighton based Black Key Records scores something of a coup: its first full length is a sixth album from Tom Ellis, a core member and resident of the esteemed Freerotation Festival, who is already well known to those in the know. Ellis has long been putting out funk and jazz inspired house and has built a fine reputation with connoisseurs around the world because of it. As a trained musician, who has played drums, bass, keys and guitar since an early age, his productions come imbued with a real sense of artistry. He has worked with a wealth of labels in his time, and now comes his most coherent and complete statement yet. There is a real sense of quality and class to the music explored on From the Cabin Above the Clouds, that makes it stand well proud of the crowd.

Slow Roll EP (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: BKR 013. Rel: 07 Dec 15
Deep House
  1. Slow Roll (11:20)
  2. Filtechno (8:03)
  3. Aired (7:32)
Review: Well formed, Brighton based, deep house label Black Key Records again comes up trumps with a tasty new EP from Germany's accomplished and well travelled Pawas.

DJ and producer Pawas Gupta has amassed a cultured discography since 2007. Releasing his moody house vibes on labels like Fear of Flying, Night Drive Music and Back Key Limited, he has put out a steady stream of excellent 12"s and LPs and never fails to cook up original sounds.

Absorbing and atmospheric opener 'Slow Roll' is a cavernous chamber of warming sound with soft rubber drums making for a lazy groove. Icy pads and soulful chords drift and flap about above as distant stabs help propel you along this underwater landscape. Building to a subtle peak that makes your whole body move, it is a fine opener that is rich and detailed.

The expertly layered 'Filtechno' is a fathom deep track that is as dubby, flabby and horizontal as you could imagine. Celestial pads circle like spirits in the night and gloopy bass brings a fortress sense of depth to this most serene bit of sonic landscaping. Many floors are sure to be in a state of brain soothing joy when they get lost in this one.

Lastly, Pawas shows another side again with 'Aired,' a more melodic and jazzy number featuring cute little piano motifs, tooting bass and hip swinging, super wet claps. It is perfectly atmospheric and nicely coloured, and rounds out a classy EP of contemporary house sounds from one of the best labels in the business.

Deep House
  1. Monsoon
  2. Sit Back
  3. Cloud Remedy
Review: Brighton's ever-cultured Black Key label pushes on with another house connoisseur for its next release, namely the venerated Scotland-based deep house producer Brad Peterson. Opening up the EP is "Monsoon" a nice and propulsive house jam that journeys through deep space with infectious drum hits and radiant synths fleshing out the rubbery groove. "Sit Back" is a more reflective and sombre cut, with wallowing, liquid chords draped over a ponderous, snaking bassline. The classy, cultured work continues on closer "Cloud Remedy" with its reverb coated hits, decisive drums and carefully spraying, ever shifting synth patterns. Classic but not overly reverential of the past, it's a beautifully musical bit of deep house with gently tumbling, starry night sky melodies to die for.
