Label: Flat White Records
Standout: A2 Johnny Bassline
The fourth release on the ever exciting Flat White Records is a four track slice that explores a deeper sound in comparison to the previous release.
Australia based Canadian, A Most Wanted Man provides the goods this time around, and with him having only one vinyl release to his name already, it’s refreshing to see FWR sticking to their mould of supporting lesser known/upcoming artists. Producing the dance floor ready remixes are legend of the game, Jacques Renault and label boss Flat White Chris.
All killer, no filler.
“Meander On Carlisle EP”
A1. Meander On Carlisle
The title track launches into a mixture of deep chords and shattering claps, all before vocal stabs, synth solos and a chugging bassline are added to create a real deep house gem. The trippy breakdown is perfect to confuse a dance floor, before exploding back into the track.
A2. Johnny Bassline
Another deep groover here, but this time with more percussive ingredients to get any toe tapping. Don’t be fooled by the dreamy segments of this track, because it won’t be long before you get hit with the funky bassline that really takes you on a ride for the duration.
B1. Meander On Carlisle (Jacques Renault Remix)
With an extensive list of credentials to his name, it was never in doubt that Jacques Renault would add a touch of class to this release with his hard hitting version of the EP’s title track. Having this on the B Side really opens up the options for any DJ, as this “in your face” remix is a sure DF destroyer.
B2. Johnny Bassline (Flat White Chris Remix)
The head honcho of FWR has squeezed himself onto this release with a tasteful remix of Johnny Bassline. Comparable to the “bumpedy bump funk” sound of the 2000’s, this housey remix uses elements from the original, as well as additional instruments to create a track with a completely different dynamic for the EP.
