Sweater – Power House [Mixed Feelings Music]

sweater - power house
Lucas Lee aka Sweater has long been a staple of the Philadelphia House scene, holding a residency at the Imprint parties in the city as well as Brooklyn charity party MOVE. This year will also see releases on L.A’s These Things Take Time and Natural Sciences but first up is his ‘Power House’ EP for the fledgling Mixed Feelings Music, headed up by Jonny Sum out of Brooklyn.

Title-cut ‘Power House’ is up first and as the name would suggest Sweater delivers a raw and rugged House cut driven by swinging, saturated drums and a snaking sub bass groove, running alongside an amalgamation of ethereal pad textures, resonant synth sequences and brass licks to create a perfect slice of sun drenched soul for the dance floor.

‘Give Me Release’ follows, taking a contrasting approach aesthetically as Sweater introduces off-kilter, dynamic drums alongside sweeping synth flutters, choppy organ stabs, intricate intertwining melodies and hazy vocal chants uttering the tracks title.
