Title: Human EP

If you like your house music nice and emotive, serene, clean and crisp then this bulky new EP from the ever-excellent Electronical Reeds label is what you need. Served up by Belgium producer Pole Folder in cahoots with Simon Latham, heads can also look forward to some strong remixes courtesy of a big list of talent, including Kompakt act Gus Gus.

The Bitter Memory is the opening track, a main room prog anthem in the making with a great and emotive vocal that will send hands in the air. It’s sensitive and bittersweet and is carried along by super rubbery drums. USE is the next original and this one is another vocal delight but is a little darker and deeper with more trouble imbued within the shuffling metallic drums.

And so to the remixes, the best of which comes from Gus Gus who repackage it as a grown up pop anthem with intricate synths and lush chords. Simon Latham turns in a fun reworking too, and Superdrums gets all buoyant and housey on his edit before finally Lex Newton ups the ante with a bubbly peak time effort that’s playful, warm and funky. Apparently Hernan Cattaneo has been supporting the package, and it’s easy to see why.
