Various Artists - 13th Hour Vol. 2
13th Hour Records presents its second offering on wax: a three track V/A exploring the murkiest depths of the house spectrum.
Tbilisi stalwart Hamasuki opens up the A-side with his synth-heavy, vocal-laden track “You As Ronnie,” a cosmic trance-tinged epic sure to move the spellbound late-nightfloor. Following in the A2 slot is up-and- coming Bristolian deRijk with “The Realm,” a true deep house belter nodding heavily to the piano anthems of the early 90’s – heavy hitting kicks and meltingly melodic keys abound. And last but very much not least is Brooklyn local M. Vaughan, taking the B-side all to himself with “Jupiter Ballad,” a layered masterpiece of haunting vocals, fluttering percussion and muddy basslines.
