London based producer Chamboché drops a new EP on the hotly tipped Black Key Records label featuring three new cuts of deep, melodic house backed with remixes from BLM. DJ/producer Sam Williams AKA Chamboché has been building an enviable reputation over the last few years. His upstart Nottingham based house and techno night Zleep at Stealth has been a flying success whilst his releases for Jiscomusic offshoot Under the Shade have gained him a solid following and support from the likes of Ewan Pearson, Steve Bug, Amé and Tensnake. Williams has recently moved to London and alongside this release for Black Key he has records upcoming on vinyl only label TUSK Wax and Under the Shade, he also looks forward to the launch of his own Bricolage Records label.
Black Key’s first two releases from artists Jonny Cade and Andy Ash have seen the label gain instant attention and this third release is certain to cement the imprint’s reputation for quality electronic music. The EP opens with ‘Mello’, a deep and laidback slice of house music that draws on warm bass, rich stabs and FX to build a perfect disco infused late night masterpiece. The original is followed by a remix from BLM, who’s normally to be found gracing labels such as Jus Ed’s Underground Quality or Tsuba and Fear of Flying. Here he takes ‘Mello’ and reworks it into a rough and raw house cut with an intense yet deep atmosphere.
Next up is ‘Show It’, a percussive workout with an infectious acid b-line and plenty of tape delay to get the floor moving. Penultimate cut ‘Perpetual Motion’ journeys into deeper and mellower territory with a mesmerising track that draws you in before dropping a classic and uplifting top riff. Finally there is an alternative mix from BLM that favours a more techno influenced feel whilst retaining the warm deep house vibe of the original. Out 30th April, check it out below.
