ANDY VAZ - Its OK
THE RANSOM NOTE (UK)
Loving this new four tracker from unsung hero of German house music, Andy Vaz. The first track ‘Love You Forever’ is the sort of Victor Simonelli-esque vocal house King Street might have put 20 years ago but with its crips, modern production values, it still manages to sound ‘now.’ I think the vocals are appropriated from somewhere else and it’s kind of driving me crazy, so if you know answers on a postcard to the usual address please. I think my favourite tack on the record is ‘Worst Fantasies’ with a slower tempo, bubbling acid b-line and almost rap vocal – and as we all know, I love a good rap! The EP closes with the deep and techy ‘U Did Me Wrong’ is great too. Out early next month.
