Vakula, Simoncino, Vincent Floyd, Reggie Dokes - Nightfall & Other Stories

London/Lisbon label Release/Sustain start the year as they mean to go on. Presenting a 4 track various artists 12’’ titled 'Nightfall and Other Stories' - comprising of four artists the label regards as legends of that deeper dance floor sound.

Opening proceedings is Dekmantel mainstay Vakula. A regular at the Release/Sustain ‘Conclave’ parties and part of the RS family. His offering, 809, is a percussive drum tool trip of a track, with sporadic raw percussion shooting shining across a positively minimalist backing.

We see Italian stalwart of underground dance music, L.I.E.S & Crème Organization regular, Simoncino. Obscure sample work, and a repeating line ‘i can use a friend’, twist and turn over rugged, thumping, functional drums and bass. Simoncino at his best!

Furthering the quality of this standout 12’’ is Chicago house music pioneer, and Dance Mania alumni Vincent Floyd. Rich in melody and familiar classic house sounds, bring a silky smooth, North American touch to a previously rugged, European 12 slab of wax.

Rounding things off we have Clone, Prime Numbers & Deep Explorer badman, Reggie Dokes. A cut riddled with percussive and quirky undertones.
