Scissor & Thread ramp up the heat with the debut release by Virginia’s deep house don,
DJ Aakmael.

Known for his infectious grooves and deep and intricate instrumentation for more than two decades, this four track EP is in no short supply of teased out, peak time, classic deep house.

The titular track wastes no time on the A-side with its hard hitting kick and springy bass
holding court, while a hypnotic serpentine synth snakes along.

The A2, What Iz Deep House, is a lesson for those who don’t know what true deep house is. Woozy, edgy chords take the spotlight as a dissociated voice slurs, “what is deep house?” A relentlessly thick kick, along with sharp as razors hi-hats and snaps, throttle the track into peak time territory.

On the flip, Sands is an aquatic affair, with its reverb laden pads and piano chord stabs submerging the floor in pelagic atmosphere. The persistent, euphoric bassline bump effortlessly slides its hooks into the listeners ears before a celestial piano melody pierces through the depths.

Frank & Tony take things even deeper with their late night Breakaway Dub, applying their signature bass line touch and hi-hat shuffle in what may be their best remix to date.
