If rock and pop music is known for being sharp edged and confrontational, for using recurring hooks and infectious gimmickry to make its point, House music and its more beguiling and hypnotic offspring Deep House, comes pretty much from the opposite end of the musical melting pot. Remembrances, from Albuquerque native DJ Ko’s Palm City EP, sums these hallmarks up rather neatly.
Here the music exposes the soul and jazz infused origins of its Chicago birthplace, through its ambient tones and hypnotic grooves, its spacious percussion and more reserved use of bass line and beat. It also does away with crescendos and drops, preferring to just gently motor along in its comfortable, non-confrontational, hypnotic and relaxing way. This is chill out music at its finest, but for all its dance sophistication, cool jazz-vibe sensitivity and musical understatement it is also music that will fill the dance floor with sultry slow movers and groovers in no time at all.
