Kicking off a spin-off label entitled Manucci’s Mistress, Sccucci Manucci are digging into further deep house goodies and sharing them on a cheeky 10″ platter courtesy of complete unknowns Silk 86.
While they may not appear to have a legacy behind them, the producer responsible clearly knows how to handle brooding, responsive deep house. On “Clear Waters” the key feature is a thick, rounded chord that pitch bends up at the end of every four bars in a hypnotic fashion. “Need Me” features equally engrossing material, not least the undulating bassline and sharp vocal snippets, completing a strong pair of cuts for contemporary house heads.
Manucci’s Mistress, the new label from Sccucci Manucci, launches with a 2 track E.P. from Silk 86. The label will be focused on the darker, deeper, sleazier & bassier side of dance music!
London-centric beatmakers Finn Casey and Thomas L are the faces behind the new Silk 86 project. Kicking off this new venture with a Ltd edition vinyl press, the Clear Waters E.P. presents two fresh cuts that bring a warm, rich and organic sound, representing an invigorating re-rub of classic house aesthetics.
Having cut their teeth over the last decade DJing, promoting and being intoxicated in the metamorphic underground scene of East London, Silk 86 remain resolute in disregarding genres in favour of incorporating their eclectic musical backgrounds. An upbringing drenched in Hip-Hop has brought a unified ethic to their sound, with a penchant for smooth basslines, hypnotic synths, and crisp percussive cuts that highlight a production prestige and confidence that outweighs their years.
Maybe the love started in a Catalunyan basement off the ‘Nou de Sant’, or just with falling for that first Bluenote sample, but what’s for certain is that Silk 86 are gonna be making your woman shiver to that ‘boom boom’, in a main room real soon.
