El Choop -New Speak/Old Speak EP (feat Nail remix)
It's timely that as Ornate Music reaches its milestone thirtieth release, it introduces another new face to its stable of deep house heavy hitters, that already includes names such as Leif, Miles Sagnia, Jayson Wynters and Dubbyman. All of whom, like new boy here, El Choop, earned their chops in the ranks at respected Welsh festival Freerotation. Unlike those other alumni though, El Choop's pedigree leans heavily on dub techno, as evidenced on previous releases for Default Position and Etui. This latest missive blends the best of both worlds, two crystalline cuts of the deepest house with subtle shades of dub. It's the sound of late-night drives, or stolen closed-eye, post-party moments. Closing out the release, there's a full-side remix of lead cut New Speak from deep house royalty, Nail, who opens up some Basic-Channel like space with a shot of DiY swing. Pure class.
