The Berlin-based partnership of long-time friends Steve Bug and Clé has reared many a classy deep house tune in its time… Their classic ‘Silicon Ballet’ EP from 2007 led us heavily into their sound, combining melodic, blissful elements with the heavy vibes of the old-school acid days. Now we’re due another full EP with ‘Seven Hills.’ The title track is a refined, long-playing stormer - perfect for the coming months as the summer weather stirs up open-air fever! From humble beginnings a riotous, epic track grows fusing the Poker Flat boys’ patented analog production and natural ear for a melody. Heartfelt strings draw the track to its finale as a teasing breakdown arrives around the 6 minute mark. This is a real slow-burner in the best sense of the phrase. The more urgent ‘Monkeyshoulder’ drives a deep blazing night-time vibe all the way home. Smooth, filtering chords and spacey stabs swirl in a magical futuristic-yet-classic house jam. Simply deadly in the right moment, this bright and dynamic production really does justice to the pair’s talents. Tracklisting: A. Seven Hills B. Monkey Shoulder

Rick Warner (Resident Advisor)

Seven Hills: A sparse and deep intro is warmed up immensely by the synths, but as soon as the classic rave melody creeps in you can feel how big this is going to be. Love it. Monkey Shoulder: sharp percussive driver. reminds me of old Red Jerry stuff. Great. Shadows: very back-room 2am stuff.. the darker the corners, the better!! Love this EP.. will request to review for RA 4/5
