NEW MUSIC: Instead Of One,Two EP – Elextra Feat. Chicaiza

New deep house EP, with correct use of the comma. Free track to download.

Elextra are Cosmic JD and Lulo. They are originally from Columbia but are now based in Toronto, via New York. Instead of One, Two is their debut release, out next month. The EP has an original mix and two remixes, by Tambourine Man and Lee Webster.

The original mix is the one for free download. This is deep house but with enough astringency and digital feel to make it flirt with the borders of detroit. Even the vocal eschews the usual wailing and has a low key, slightly desperate, feeling. Quality track. The Tambourine Man remix is a bit more low key, more analogue and more conventionally deep house. Lee Webster’s mix is a tasteful deep house club mix. Dull.

Blurb: Emerging Toronto via Brooklyn duo Elextra and Chicaiza team up to launch a memorable debut single for the panglobal Anusual label entitled “Instead Of One, Two”. Featuring remixes from Lee Webster and Tambourine Man, this is funky midtempo vocal house just the way you like it – sleazy. The original features an excellent vocal and a chunky deep house feel with just the right amount of tasteful retro influences to give this track a very now sound. Newcomer Tambourine Man takes things even deeper with chilled pads and a slight broken beat influence that is quite unique and memorable. Strong melodies abound on this remix. Hot Spanish producer Lee Webster closes the package with a very nice dance floor filler that features superb percussion work and a wonderfully deep, afterhours vibe.

Coming out September 15th (Digital)

Released by: Anusual
Release/catalogue number: AR007
