Anyone that has been following the underground, deep house scene has probably heard of the Brooklyn based label Super Tuff. Mind you, they have only been around for one year and are run by a single label head M. Vaughn. However, that’s not to say they haven’t made the most of their first couple of releases, coming out with compilations that feature tunes from Bolting Bits faves like Jesse Bru, DJ Aakmael, Luvless and Long Island Sound.
Hellbent on making the most of their fresh start, Super Tuff have decided to come out with their first artist EP – a record that only contains the sublime beats of Bristol native Marcel Lune! (soundcloud) And who better to step up to the task for them? Already making quite the name for himself from the release of his debut album on Local Talk, Mr. Lune continues to formulate a sound on “Family Grooves” that’s more jazz than any of its disco or house elements.
For instance, take his spell-binding, A2 concoction titled You Can Do It! Although the piece contains dance music essentials like wobbling synths and intersecting rhythms of afrobeat percussion, at its core, the seamlessly arranged melodies from Lune’s exuberant jazz piano are what hold everything together – making for an experience that sounds chaotic and structured at the same time. For fans of musicians like Laurence Guy, Crackazat, and Seb Wildblood, this will certainly be your cup of tea!
