Stats for this track
Mile End Records is proud to present five stand-out deep house tracks from Kenny Summit's upcoming full length album Not Just Talk. Kenny Summit is a New York City staple having DJ'ed for almost two decades in the 'city that never sleeps.' He's played with pretty much all of the city's big wigs and has forged long lasting relationships with some of the biggest names in house music. Summit finally moved into production, releasing well received tracks on the likes of Sonido Local, Ultra, and, of course, Mile End. After this string of underground releases Kenny Summit is finally ready to unleash his debut album onto the scene.
As far as albums are concerned, Kenny's first venture proves to be quite impressive. There are obvious standout dance floor tracks like "The Cut" which features samples from The Ones' classic house anthem "Flawless." There's also "Nickel Plated" which features a throwback synth bass-line under raw percussion … it's already in the digital crates of some of the world's top DJs. Quite possibly the gem of the album is "Mayhem" which is not only soulful but packs a punch with its unique voice over and huge keys that bring massive energy to the dance floor. Next, "What We Must Become" is another soulful masterpiece and "Sax Breath" is a refreshingly deep tech-house jam sure to be a favorite of the underground heads. Not Just Talk proves to be a well rounded album with a little something for everyone.
