Origins Sound – Detroit Cuts
Label: Definition MusicScore: 8/10
Intoxicating tech-house is the sort of stuff that Definition has built its reputation on, and in Origins Sound, the Swiss boys have again been able to lean on producers whose job it is to rock the party to its core. With their previous inclinations enticing them to the likes of Morris Audio and Underground Audio, that probably comes as little surprise.
The Detroit Cuts EP, then, is one that expertly plays to the guys’ strengths, with a series of well drawn-out tracks gloriously shimmying up against one another. With each track as potent as the next, it’s hard to pick a winner, although the title track does feature seriously bang for your buck. If it’s bassline-levelled, catchy house music then look no further then this one, for you have been served with glee here. Middling effort ”Black” isn’t quite as dark and foreboding as its title would allude to, as it cleverly allows light to creep in at the end of the tunnel thanks to its many melodic facets.
Seeing us out the door is ”Amery”, with its fun-loving lyrics proving a wonderful ode to the sheer, undoubted power of house music. The house heads are sure to revel in this one, a truly mesmerising display by the Origins Sound boys.
