NORMALS WELCOME

The delectable Normals Welcome bring more upfront, multi-dimension house music to our receptive head spaces. Project Pablo and Khotin should need no introduction to our regulars, having established themselves as leading lights in the current dance music scene. Here they join forces as Rest Corp for their debut collaborative release. "Infinity Scroll" was created during a weeklong session at Deep Blue in Vancouver. From the arpeggiated house moods of "Love it TBH" to the depths of the dubbed-out title track. The 12" is then capped off at peak intensity with the bouncy basslines and high-pitched filtered freak outs of "Current Mode". Excellent stuff here from two producer's highly tuned into the circuitry of the dancefloor.

Montreal-based outdoor enthusiast Unknown Mobile offers up his debut on Normals Welcome with this 12" full of gentle hand drums and wavy melodies. Percussion guides the way through levels of airy pads and catchy synth lines on three solo cuts. His dancefloor sensibilities then interlock with Vancouver's amiable Big Zen for a spaced-out but dancefloor focused, collaborative track on the B side. If you've a penchant for the sublime and cerebral side of house music then this release is for you! Recommended.

Matt says: Really strong collection of new house grooves. Rich with esoteric leanings and a rainforest friendly palette; for the dancers and dreamers alike!

Tuff Sherm (also known for his work as Dro Carey) is one of the mainstays of the techno section here at Piccadilly, with releases on The Trilogy Tapes, Berceuse Heroique and Opal Tapes. Hiss style, often arresting, challenges what's usually expected from the techno genre; coating his tough, jarring rhythms with sugary sweet pads or infectious vocal hooks. This EP for Normals Welcome handily showcases the various faces of Tuff Sherm; starting with the relaxed, string-led "Fondren & Denison" - wrapping his textured rhythms around a string stab pattern which UR would be proud of, thickening out the mix with rich piano chords and rib-tickling kick drums. "Method Man" rolls out gated slab bass across a sloppy house groove; making for a functional body mover that should keep the daytime buzz going steady. Flip and Sherm's twangy, discordant acid converges on the disc, sharp melodic shards cutting through the fug on "Squire's Skull". Finally, "Waldron Mug" deploys some fresh sounding tribal techno, complete with growling leads, mangled robo-vox and metallic, industrious washes. All in all a futureproof and highly enjoyable trip from our man Tuff Sherm.
