TBR: 16th November
Berlin based electronic music label Unreel bursts into bloom with their inaugural release, Soo Good by Housemeister. This single puts the bouncy and high energy world of upbeat house music on the ticket straight away, setting the scene for plenty more party anthems to follow no doubt. Housemeister is no stranger to making music, two decades of tuneful adventures proceed him. Already with releases on labels such as Detroit Underground, Bpitch Control, and Boysnoize Records, Housemeister is more than ready to set another stone in his far reaching catalogue of work. By remaining fresh and with an open mind, this long term beat technician has evaded the bourgeois by adapting and evolving with every step taken.
It begins with a staggered drum beat and a vocal sample revolving in short bursts. A strange sensation washes over the room as the pressure slowly builds in waveform and amplitude. New drums kick in and provide a funky rhythm to dance to while the vocal-line merges with the music to become an odd yet workable sound effect. Extra intensity brings out extra percussion in the mix which drives the track forward. Simple yet densely populated with beats, this fun and sparkly number sets a great scene. Synthesisers replace the voice to send the track into a heads down foot stomping frenzy of dancing. They come back just as the energy requires it.
The two B-side tracks take the initial mix and work on it to bring out new variations of flow and energy. The T.Raumschmiere Remix is the first of the two. It produces straight away with fruity and distorted wobbles that begin the beat. A dirty drum kicks in regular throbs and a robotic version of the “Soo Good” vocal sample butters the track with a layer of cool. This techno orientated version of the track has a futuristic feel and brings in subtle energies of old fashioned technology. Not Soo Good makes the final number on this release. It pushes the track in the opposite direction to the previous B-side offering. Technically the same track again, only with a much more frantic sounding drum-beat with treble reigning on the production, another high energy dancer for yet another different crowd. Perhaps these last two tracks are more experimental however they feel more fun to me. Then again, maybe I needed to hear the original before I could make that judgement?
