SLOK – ROOTS EP

Adam Shelton’s One Records imprint has been gathering serious momentum of late with some absolutely quality releases from the likes of Alex Arnout, Yakine and the mighty Jordan Peak. With their 13th release, they welcome to the fold Slok who comes up trumps with his Roots EP; backed by remixes from label favourites Kris Wasdworth, Alex Arnout and Adam Shelton.

The lead track, “Roots” builds slow and steady in an array of high hats, claps and drum patterns before a melodic synth rides above a catchy, eerie vocal snippet. On the flip, “My Soul” is a true house number perfect for those dance floor work outs, intricately layered yet incredibly effective.

On remix duties, One Records summon Detroit’s Kris Wadsworth who lays down his trade mark peak time thumping sound complete with deep & dark keys and when someone entitles their remix “Quarter pounder with Sleaze”, what’s not to like?!

Further to this we have future starlet of the house scene, Alex Arnout who’s more stripped back, deep house interpretation is a solid piece of work. Add to this a jackin’ Adam Shelton remix and what you have here is a very, very nice package indeed.

Keep your eyes on the sounds coming out of the One Records camp, something tells me they’ll be bossing it by the end of the year. Until then, do yourself a favour and check out the previews below and the EP is out 19th of March.
