"Joy, Ease, Lightness" is the new EP from the Rhythm Section camp. A 4 track label debut from Dan Kye aimed squarely at the dancefloor, with a meditative awareness and rhythmic sensibility that reaches far beyond the club. "Change" opens proceedings with a quick paced beatdown house track, full of soulfoul vocal stylings, frenetic percussion and a bumpety, basement house approach. "Like You Wanna" rolls out guitar licks and smooth vocal snips over occasional piano flurries, funky bass and very Moodymann-esque drums. It's worth noting that the whole EP has that smoky, sexy vibe that the aforementioned Detroit DJ would often feature in his DJ sets. Onto side B and "Toile" features infectious, summery bass, pulsing synth and more tumbling drum beats. It's deep house at its finest and most organically pleasing; perfect for dancing away the sunset hours. Finally, "Ligo" teases the speaker stacks with thick wooden bass fragments, rattling the subs as another sensuous deep house lick ripples out the speakers with lashings of soul. Yet another stellar release from the Rhythm Section International Crew, grab it while you can.

Repressed to coincide with Jordan Rakei's new LP. This alter-ego of the multitalented genius, released on Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section in 2016, shows the artist in a laid back and loved up mood. If you liked his other stuff you NEED to check this out ASAP!
