Berlin based DJ Powel is next up on Behrouz’s Do Not Sit on the Furniture Recordings label with five tracks of hugely atmospheric house.
Mixing signature rhythms with fine percussion and real musical and emotival depth, Powel has become a key player in the globe scene. He’s a resident with Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream around the world and Do Not Sit on the Furniture in Miami. He also releases on Sol Selectas and is a real storyteller as these tracks prove.
Opener Since We’ve Been is a dreamy bit of house with drifting pads passing by like a warm breeze. Great vocal samples add real heart and ensure this one radiants real heat. Who Put That Piano in the Jungle is a more tribal and tropical bit of house with great drums and percussion sounding all steamy and seductive. The groove runs deep with animal sounds adding to the exotic feel and great piano lines bringing the melody.
Doorbell Symphony is a smooth deep house groove with subtle pads and warm chords all fleshing out the rubbery drums. It’s classy and filled with real emotions before A Record This Quiet picks things up with breezy house vibes. Great chord stabs and more spring day ambience swirl around as spoken word samples add feeling and keys drenched in echo are lovably louche and loose. Last of all, Tuesday Blues sways to and fro with thoughtful pads encouraging you to cut loose and allow yourself to day dream as you get lost in the beautiful drums.
This is a tasteful EP of inventive and expressive house music filled with worldly feelings.
