After getting glimpses of Denyl Brook’s production prowess in recent collaborations with the likes of Shall Not Fade family members THEOS and Romeo Louisa, we welcome him to the groove-focused, dancefloor-oriented Killer Cuts series to which he delivers 6 feel-good house bangers in his signature funk-infused style.
If groove is the word, then Denyl Brook is your man. An incredibly prolific producer, in the space of his relatively short career the Marseille-born Silver Steps Records boss has been responsible for an impressive output, released via his own imprint as well as labels such as Basement Discos and House Cookin’ Records.
Leaping Tenacity EP into action is the sunshine-dipped, serotonin-saturated ‘Baby It’s You’ which comes complete with a skippy house beat and syrup-smooth vocal licks before ‘Take Me Higher’ takes things deeper, cool oozing from its funk-infused bassline. ‘His Name’ takes us right back to the dance floor, where we will remain firmly-footed for the next two up. Arpeggiating synth tickles and luscious pads illuminate the aptly-titled ‘Bliss’ before ‘Hear Me’ awakens us from our reverie with a hard-hitting pulse and low-frequency acid melody. Finally, ‘My Friend Barry’ sees the EP at its most stripped-back - deep house in its purest form: meditative yet steeped in sex appeal.
Tenacity EP drops 22nd April via Shall Not Fade.
