After a 3 year hiatus making techno for various labels, Orlando B returns to his deep house sound which gained him recognition with EP’s on Yore, Undertones and Seven Music. This time he brings us three contrasting house cuts on his new label ‘Contemplate Recordings’ which will now be the primary output for his deeper productions. Title track ‘Across The Trax’ kicks things off with a funky, down-tempo house joint! Although the BPM count is low the track has plenty of swagger about it with jazz funk chords jamming over a quirky yet solid drum pattern. These elements are propped up with a deep “suby” bass line. The track gains momentum by adding more percussive and harmonic elements before peaking with a saxophone melody played by Mr B. Track 2, ‘Night Walker’ is primarily a club tool designed with dance floors in mind. A “late night” hypnotic groove filters in gradually over a restrained kick drum whilst hi-hat and snare rhythms are introduced. After a minute intro’, a 909 kick finally drops which lifts the energy of the track whilst the chord hook continues to lock you in to the groove. The track is purposely stripped back to allow the DJ to mix creatively as they see fit. To contrast the raw stripped back nature of side A, side B track ‘Jimmy’s Groove’ is a classic sounding deep house affair with plenty of musical flair to make it stand out from the crowd. The main motif, a rising jazz chord is played throughout over a solid house kick and bass line. Plenty of musical elements are introduced as the track progresses. Classic house-piano and string chords, an emotive vocal sample and jazzy lead synth’ lines all have a part to play in this 9 minute epic, which will reward repeat listens. Presenting us with three different takes on deep house, this EP will have something for every- one. Whether it be in the club or for home listening. An essential addition to the record bag.
