An expedition through the misty jungles of Chicago House, UK underground.
Groove-Madness Part II
Glenn Astro is the groove wizard. His new four-track-EP TEARZ is the travelogue of an expedition through the misty jungles of Chicago House, UK underground and Future Sounds of Paris.
The EP – Tearz
Those who know his style will quickly be familiar with Glenn Astro ́s heavily syncopated and fluffy takes on contemporary House Music. With a timeless concinnity his tracks float over the dancefloor like fleecy clouds on a balmy summer morning.
Together – the very first track on this EP, sets things clear within the first few bars: Welcome to the wonderful world of Glenn Astro! A funky bassline, a well-hung synth and beats from another world are woven together to a deephouse-monster that grabs you after seconds and binds you to the dancefloor ‘till the end of time.
Back to how it was, with its massive Wobble-Bass, raises the tempo while shuffling its way along the deep paths of string-loaded UK-groove history – straight into a clear blue 2013-acid-heaven. The title track Tearz, same as all tracks on this EP – is barely scratching the 5-minute mark. Tearz takes the listener on a dirty sashay deep south, where the claps are still handmade, the drums crisp and an irresistible hook-line cries for endless repetition. Everlasting afterhour-happiness.
Get Up, the final chapter of this stunning EP, gives you a ride back to good old Chicago with its reminiscence to „house as a feeling“. A pleasant time journey to the golden age when underground club culture brought people together in cosmic peace and harmony – casually reappointing the theory: Only heavy shuffle is the right quantization.
