DET 313 EP
DET 313 EP (12")
Cat: UAR 001. Rel: 25 Feb 21
Deep House
  1. Omar S/Norm Talley - "Muggy Detroit Heat" (5:56)
  2. Norm Talley/Moodymann - "Jus Hangin" (feat Charlotte OC - mashed up by D'Julz) (7:21)
Review: There is a heavyweight selection of names on this first release from Norm Talley's promising new label Upstairs Asylum. Firstly, the man himself is a Motor City heavyweight who links with fellow luminary Omar S on the opener 'Muggy Detroit Heat.' It's an intense and steamy house track that bristles with raw melody. On the flip, French house icon D'Julz reworks a tune by Norm in cahoots with the one and only Moodymann. This one is all cuddly chords, romanic vocal chops and warm, rough edged house beats for those cosy basements.

Deep Essentials Vol 1
Cat: UAR 004. Rel: 01 Jun 21
Deep House
  1. The People (intro) (2:22)
  2. Holla-Day (4:22)
  3. One Track Mind (4:13)
  4. Deeptroitsrumental (7:14)
  5. D-Toolz (3:59)
Review: Detroit legend Norm Talley calling his new EP Deep Essentials suggests that, somehow, everything he makes isn't deep and essential. But it is. Anyway, here are five more perfectly designed grooves that sink you into a warm, smoky basement and keep you there. 'Holla-Day' has those trademark sharp hi hats and rolling drums, 'One Track Mind' has a hypnotic synth loop you hope never ends and 'Deeptroitsrumental' is a fantastically rickety drum workout that is primed for dance floor action. 'D-Toolz' rounds out with a sense of edginess, the promise of a big techno breakout that never comes but keeps you locked in hope.

Tracks From The Asylum 2
Cat: UAR 003. Rel: 11 Mar 21
Deep House
  1. Gonna Luv U (5:16)
  2. Detroit Dubz (7:24)
  3. In Your Soulz (8:29)
  4. Digital XTC (Detroit mix) (4:14)
Review: Recently Norm Talley launched a new label, Upstairs Asylum, and delivered a much-needed sequel to his superb 2011 EP on Mixmode, Tracks From The Asylum. A decade on from the record's original release, he's finally got around to producing a sequel. The native Detroiter predictably starts in fine fashion via 'Gonna Luv U', a chunky and locked-in house number rich in groovy bass, bold piano motifs, ear-cathing sax riffs and colourful P-funk samples, before heading ultra-deep via the beatdown-influenced haziness of 'Detroit Dubz'. 'In Your Soulz' sees him add energy-packed hand percussion and chiming lead lines to a bustling deep house beat, while 'Digital XTC (Detroit Mix)' is a spacey, hypnotic workout that sounds like it was tailor-made for dark warehouses in the hours approaching dawn.

Unity Vol 2
VARIOUS
Unity Vol 2 (2xLP)
Cat: UA 006. Rel: 15 Sep 21
Deep House
  1. Delano Smith - "Big City Nights" (6:19)
  2. Dorian Gig - "Paralell Universe" (5:30)
  3. Tyree Cooper - "Raw Underground" (6:46)
  4. Norm Talley - "LE Beaubienare" (5:33)
  5. Ataxia - "Take You Back" (5:53)
  6. Brian Kage - "Poly-Phonic Phonk" (5:54)
  7. Gari Romalis - "D-ENV3" (8:03)
Review: Norm Talley has put together a second volume of his Unity series on his own label Upstairs Asylum. It features his nearest and dearest from Chicago and Detroit, all of whom of course serve up perfectly smoky and stripped back deep house and techno grooves to make you move. Delano Smith's characteristic loops lock you in from the off on 'Big City Nights,' Norm himself pairs dub techno chords with suggestive techno stabs that keep you on edge and Brian Kage's 'Poly-Phonic Phonk' is heady, dreamy, richly melodic house bets listened to in a cosy back room at 4 am.

  8. Kenny Dixon Jr - "I'm Goin Black" (7:37)
  9. Delano Smith - "Hot Lovely Relations" (7:06)
  10. Omar S - "VAT 69" (Godson mix) (8:22)
  11. Delano Smith & Rick Wilhite - "Pipe Putta" (12:45)
Review: Every so often, a compilation comes along and delivers a snapshot of a city's underground music scene at a given moment in time. That's what compilers Rick Wilhite and Delano Smith have achieved with Parabellum Detroit, an expansive and predictably high-quality collection of cuts from some of the Motor City's finest producers. They naturally provide a couple of collaborative cuts of their own - the spacey, late-night techno hypnotism of '11 Minutes of Funk' and the intergalactic deep house drift of 'Neo Solaris', while there are also top-notch contributions from Javontte (the warm, soul-flecked deep house of 'Late Night Love'), Marcellus Pittman (beatdown chugger 'Everybody Party'), Gerald Mitchell AKA Soul Saver (the incredible 'Kaori'), the Moodymann Kenny Dixon Jr ( 'I'm Goin' Back') and Omar-S (a tidy Godson remix of 'VAT 69').
