** Repress ** Yes! Secretsundaze hit pay dirt with this killer double drop from the man Amir Alexander. As anyone who grabbed his Idiot Savant Masterpiece EP will attest, the Vanguard Sound head has put his name to all manner of excellent records in the past eighteen months without getting the wider exposure his own distinct brand of percussion heavy US house music merits. An appearance on a label such as Secretsundaze should ensure Alexander's music seeps through the cracks of recognition and really, he's on fine form here. Lead cut "Don't Go" is simple, unfussy house music - little more than hard hitting drums, snaking synths, a squelching analogue bass line and a submerged vocal. Complementing this, the suitably titled "Bangin'" details Alexander's penchant for taut acid flecked house bangers. No nonsense House music from a current master of his craft.
