About this item

Dead Horses continue with release number two. After the well received V/A debut, the label enlist Simba in for a solo EP and featuring the additional support of Aroop Roy.

"Love On Fire" kicks us off and is a perfectly formed early evening groove; effortlessly skipping between house and disco territories with a nice rotary bassline and tantalizing flanging elements. Add a well catchy vocal hook and you've got yourself a high voltage dancefloor magnet to reel em in with!

"Dory" adopts a beatdown house style, turning up the MPC shuffle settings and chopping up a soulful vocal sample. A few choice dusty keyboard motifs later and you'll be nodding along in appropriate fashion.

Sheffield mainstay Thatmanmonks remixes "Love On Fire", transforming it into a taut little house beast by adding "French Kiss"-esque synth stabs and suspended strings. Add some cranium twisting SFX and swirls, the odd warehouse vox and a winding lead synth and you've got all the drama and excitement of double dropping two UPS's at Wet Play!

"Kano's Fatality" concludes proceedings with driving deep house cut; pluming bass, chopped female vox and organic perx giving off a summery flavour that wouldn't sound out of place at any big rig outdoor celebration and certainly ensures repeat plays for this disc thru the party season.

Top follow up! - keep yer eyes on this label folks...
