Today’s TRACK OF THE DAY comes from Brooklyn’s HOMAGE, a new release from Jaden Thompson called ‘To The Light’, pre-order available now on Traxsource is a new EP from Ben Gomori, entitled ‘What A Time To Be A House Producer’ and featuring four-originals from the UK artist. Ben has been a prominent figure in the London house scene for the past two decades, heading up his own Monologues Records as well as the podcast of the same name, his Turned On radio show, and the acclaimed Stern Edits imprint. Amongst this Gomori has also released his material further afield on imprints such as Atjazz Music Company and Needwant, here though we see him joining the roster of New York’s HOMAGE with more high octane house cuts.
‘Fluxed Up’ leads with an amalgamation of delayed stab sequences, vocal chants, and acid-tinged hooks while a snaking bassline and swinging drums carry the groove. ‘Madrugada’ follows, laying focus on organic percussion, gritty bass stabs, and fluttering resonant synth lines throughout. ‘Thicc Boi Season’ is up next, a nod towards classic acid house courtesy of squelchy 303 licks, bright chord sequences, siren-like synths, and a crunchy drum workout. ‘This Is How I Feel About House’ then rounds out the release, as the name would suggest Gomori delivers his interpretation of a true house record, fusing classic chord sequences and a bumpy bass hook with dynamic drums and intricately unfolding Moog style synth lines.
All proper certified big fat friggen’ bangers!!!
