Griffintown Records aims to establish itself as a vital house outlet with a new offering from the UK’s Lee Walker that includes a remix from Luigi Rocca. Lee is a UK producer who has held residencies at key clubs and can do it all from deep and warm to more peak time and techno. In addition to this, he is a producer on labels like Hotflush, Defected and Hot Creations, and here serves up a heavy house EP.
‘That Pure Badboy Track’ is built on chunky, rolling, drums that suck you in. The icy snares and wooden hits only hammer home the groove as a rude boy vocal is delivered over the top.
Remixing is Italian artist and 303lovers and Hotfingers label owner Luigi Rocca. He brings his tech house perspective to the beats and flips the cut into a percussive hard-hitter that has drums and hats cutting up the floor.
Walker then comes correct with ‘Chords & Things,’ eight vibe-y minutes of classic New York house. With organ stabs, dancing drums and a sense of joy, it aims to get hands in the air.
