Jamie L -- (What We Saw) In The Burg
A1 In The Burg
A2 In The Burg (Havana Candy Mix)
B In The Burg (Cottam Remix)
Jamie L is a mysterious figure of undisclosed origin and history who fits in to the Moodyman / Theo Parrish mold of heavy future disco; which his new production '(What We Saw) In The Burg' nails.
It's a heavy leftfield groove laid over broken house beats with a filtered bass, samples and deep vibe. The Detroit pad creeps up to the break and filters in and out as the track works it's way through for locked down dance floor business.
Next up, Havana Candy breaks out the analogue and takes things deeper and techier. With a rolling bass and tweaking acid line, it cuts to a Rhodes before filtering down and riding back to the heads down groove.
Cottam steps up for Paper for the first time and demonstrates what all the fuss is about with a very special mix. Clocking in at 9.41 it's deep, tough soulful house that crosses the 4/4 divide from techno to disco and deep house to soul.
Finally Dubbin' The Burg takes the leftfield template and nails a more minimal take of leftfield disco business.
