As the sun beats down and the beach/pool parties of the summertime are at their prime, house music is king. An overall mood of good vibes and shoulder-popping, hip-shaking grooves are what the duo Dekontrol has in mind with their two track EP "Now/Addicted". Filtered soul, looping rhythms, pitched vocals and catchy stabs hook you from the get-go painting a canvas of simplistic drama. Relying on FX to create tension in an otherwise straight forward soundscape, Dekontrol have captured the essence of not over-thinking the direction of what makes you dance. Both tracks supply enough energy to fill the floor but have a bit of stripped back ingenuity that allows the music to be taken seriously with an ample dose of funk and keenly placed crescendos. Completing the package are two brilliant remixes from house music stalwarts, Filthy Rich and James Talk. Harkening back to the days of speed garage, Rich takes us on a journey reminiscent of a late 90's underground party with his rendition of "Now". Snares, chatter and hi-hats fizz while the booming bassline drives its way through the depth of the track. James creates an intricate percussive groove on his remix of "Addicted" with an incessantly rolling bassline that growls amidst the modulating acid lead. His positioning of the the vocal at just the right moment draws on the marriage between sexy tribal and deep house, giving the track a proper drive while still maintaining underground credibility.
