Even without original member Meryn Saunders, Virgo Four continues to produce excellent Chicago flavored House Music. Therefore, its fitting that the first cut, titled “Just Let Me,” seeks to take the listener on a journey back to the 80s heyday of Chicago house culture. With the same knack they had back in the day for creating music full of slinking synths, laid back atmospheres and sultry vocals this first track really sets the tone for this EP.
The aptly named “Superbass” follows a similar formula, but features a running staccato baseline with just the right amount of acid tinge to keep it from falling into the increasingly cliche modern deep house sound. Probably the standout track on the EP is “1986”. This is that classic house sound done to perfection, which is easy for Eric Lewis and Terry Ivy since they were two of the people who helped define it. Closing up the EP is “Let Me Touch Your Soul” which is a bit more hypnotic and driving than the other tracks and features some solid drum programming and synth textures. This EP is destined to be a modern classic in House Music with its classic sound but modern polish, marking it as a must-have.POSTED BY
