An extremely active time for Deep Space Orchestra right now, they have a whopping 5 releases scheduled over as many weeks! Quantity and quality it would seem with their Ghetto Science Institute EP (Use of Weapons) being awarded record of the week at Piccadilly It’s a lovely release featuring two originals and a remix of each. Ghetto Science Institute is remixed by Neville Watson and Vanishing Point gets the treatment from Marcello Napoletano. Take a listen CLICK
Bucktown Fever EP (Quintessentials) was also released this week and has so far been extremely well received. I have just read this review from Juno – ‘Si Murray and Chris Barker aka Deep Space Orchestra have been making some serious waves since they first began producing together in 2005. Releasing on a set of reputable labels such as Delusions of Grandeur and Drumpoet Community over the following few years, they now hold a stellar rep for their raw and groove ridden deep house. This time round, the pair have been snapped up by Quintessentials and frankly, we can’t think of a more suitable artist-label partnership. Priding themselves on flawless quality and soulful vibes, Quintessentials are cream of the British crop. The Bucktown Fever EP kick starts with the smooth and sophisticated “Bucktown”; rich, pumping and analogue, its driving rhythm and vintage charm make the EP a winner before we’ve even flipped over. Once we do however, “Arrakis” holds its own with delicate strings, simple chord sequences and sensual vocal snippets, bound together by tight hi-hats and a deep round bass. Lastly, “Don’t Move” and its intriguing field recordings and expertly executed percussion tips an already outstanding EP into a timeless, classy piece of wax that we highly recommend’
