About this item

The established heavy hitting outfit, Nicepeople, kick things off for 2022 in fine style. Gourmet De Funk drops three killer house tracks and the label enlist no other than the royal Roy Davis Jr. for a remix - oh yes oh yes!

Title track 'A Love Supreme' initiates proceedings on the A side, a chunky disco-house track that's got whiffs of Shir Khan and Roule but developed into its own unique style. The evocative spoken word sample - highlighting the Chicago skyline as viewed from Detroit really sets the sparkle to this peak time beaty.

"The Way You Move" uses slick percussion teasing you into a journey of funky bass, looped vox, feel good strings and expert filter use - like funky house that never soured. Closing off the EP is the "Never Lost (GDF Morning Dub)"; seductive deep house for the early morning dancers, crisp hi-hats brushing by as you feel yourself swallowed up into the clouds, one for the dreamers.

Nicepeople never seem to take the pedal off the gas, consistently pushing their brand and propelling top shelf house music from an array of inspiring producers of old and new, and they the year with intent. Top marks.
