Neil Diablo – Let’s Get It On EP
This new EP is on the UK’s Paper Recordings, so it’s bound to be good. And Neil Diablo is from Manchester. What more do you want?
Let’s Get It On is a cool tribal opener with a lovely bit of organ swirl that takes it into deep house territory until it ends in acid 303. Sounds confused. Really isn’t. Yr Mind Yr is a great bit of classic Detroit sounds. Take Two is an odd beast. It’s quite a slow house groove. Head nodding than dancing.
Blurb: Neil Diablo, one of Manchester’s unsung heroes steps out from behind the decks to release an EP of future music that ranges from peak time deep house to slo-mo disco. Let’s Get It On is deep tribal business headed straight to the main room. It’s teeth are shown once the organ synth comes in for proper heads down foot to the floor deep house that bites. The latter half of the track gives the 303 a run out and it’s all boxes ticked! Yr Mnd Yr first saw the light of day on the Paper Cuts # 1 compilation earlier in the year, finding favour with DJs like Justin Robertson, Andy Ash and Love From Outer Space’s Sean Johnston. Here he strips things back for a dub that is tough house music, drawing equal inspiration from Detroit, NYC and Chicago. Finally he flexes his disco muscles on Take Two. Taking things right down, it’s a rolling funk groove with an off-kilter bass, delayed synths, dub stabs and a sample that does it’s thing in slo-mo style. Music for the head and feet.
