Looking back at the On The Prowl catalog one will notice the string of Italian producers; Simoncino, Nicholas, Marvin & Guy… OTP’s love affair with Italian producers continues with South Italy’s Nasty Boy. With a half dozen EPs already under his belt, he continues his forward march down the road of deeper house. His tracks tend to have a lovely melancholy with simple pads, and a vibe that’s hard to ignore.

To round off the release OTP’s very own Runaway (Marcos Cabral & Jacques Renault) find themselves with their first remix since remixing Lauer for Running Back Records. Following in the same path, this remix is both deep, jacking, and playful. Hopefully this is a sign of more Runaway to come.

Faithfanzine Review : V.A. / Analogue Signal Ep

My mad-love for Batti Batti productions is well documented here at Faith. Blind it ain’t though. So it’s just as well that no blinkers are necessary still with the label now four vinyl releases in and every one utterly essential.

On the Analogue Signal EP the modus operandi remains the same; four cuts from invited friends and guests plus work from Batti Batti owner – yes it’s that man again – Owen Jay and his regular studio partner Melchior Sultana.

Opening the show as it were is German-based producer Marco Nega. Although a newer name, Nega already has some pedigree having been picked up previously by Jennifa Mayanja’s label Bu-mako and Malcolm Moore’s Altered Moods imprint. Here with Voodub (Sumbody Is Missin), Nega drops a simple and effective groove drenched in deepness and class.

Label stalwarts Owen Jay and Melchior Sultana do what they have been threatening to do for some time now and that is deliver a track that will be considered one of the finest of its genre and will remain in many a record box for years to come. No hands-in-the-hair screamer is Mist Of Time but merely a beautiful, emotion-wrenching and tenderly-produced cut to immerse yourself in. Simple as that.

Italian beatsmith Nasty Boy is also a regular within the Batti Batti fold and with Walk Alone does what he does best; groovy and techy synth-heavy deep house made for the floor. Nino’s Synthese Cosmique is another perfectly judged addition to the EP and opts for a more techno and ambient influenced approach that rounds of a fine release in style.
