After the huge success of their first double LP compilation from January, Sccucci Manucci return this May with another instalment of their critically acclaimed VA's series. 'The Nine Bows' is, as the title suggests, the ninth Sccucci Manucci release and features 8 astounding tracks that carefully traverse the realm of house from its deepest roots to its highest peaks. It will be available in both physical and digital format, but take note that the vinyl pressing will be a limited edition of 50 copies pressed on gorgeous white and black splattered wax so be on the lookout.
Brighton's freshest rising star Aashton opens the EP with 'I can't Shake It', a well polished sunny vocal anthem soon to be one of the most played tracks of the summer of 2014. Following up next is another debut, this time in the form of a deep and moody piece of underground house madness titled 'Wait For You' delivered by a skilled Frenchman that goes by the name of Maverick. The jump from deep to pure raw jacking dementia is done with a flip of the record as we find the talented Jackson Ryland unveiling his dirtiest side with the harsh and sweaty 'Tandem Tech' on Side B. Rounding off the first 12" of the package with one of the most infectious ass shaking warm-up tune we ever heard is Marsupials, a Naples-based production collective that's main focus is on good party times and hot club vibes with 'Glider'.
Our personal highlight of the release unveils at the start of the second 12" where Montel manages to outdo himself by delivering a monster house anthem true to its genuine house roots. 'Lemme Hold You' gets straight to the point with its suggestive vocals and ecstatic key line placing it at the top of the house tracks of the year. Stepping back into deeper territory is Mr. Kavalicious' 'Moving To You', a simple yet effective fat bassline roller that features a sublime vocal cuts and occasional swirling pads and stabs. The second flip-side finds Mikki Funk releasing 'Love Inside', an amazing piece of old-skool house to the world, while the smooth voice of Albert Vogt adds a timeless layer of vocal romance to the mix. Last, but not least, the mysterious B Moe has the honour of concluding this musical chapter with 'Gambino', a solid hip hop infused heavy bass work out that will surely rattle you up leaving you craving for more.
Out on the 19th of May on splattered vinyl, limited to 50 pieces worldwide.
