Ruthit drops this huge EP on Turquoise Blue Recordings at the end of the month and if you’re serious about house music you’re already waiting for it. The title track ‘Deep Blue‘ is the strongest of the release, epitomizing what the deep house sound is all about. The Original is my personal favorite; the slow build and a subtle laying capture the vibe and hit me on a subconscious level. The MANIK remix still has the percussion, basslines, and melodic vocals samples, but the deep grove is replaced by a more dominant kick-in-the-gut bass drum and clap.
‘Disturb the Comfortable’ comes in two flavors. The Original is a Bible-thumping cut with heavy beats rolled up in haunting synths and trippy chimes. I didn’t really catch on to this one the first few times I listened to it, but it’s grown on me a bit since. The Boris Horel Broadway Mix offers a different idea, more of a Salvador Dali vision of things. Still heavy, but even more twisted trippy.
The fifth wheel on the EP is ‘So Special’, a house-driven track with subtle tech attitude and an all-around fun vibe. Sure, it’s the odd man out, but this one has found a way into rotation nonetheless.
