Eder Pavaneli and friends come with four fine deep groovers

A collaborative affair here, as Brazilian producer Eder Pavaneli - better known as Domestic Science - teams up with some industry buddies on a fine deep house EP for Cambridge-based label Lucky Sun Recordings.

Up first is Life Searching, a midtempo, bass-heavy affair produced in collaboration with label boss Tom Lown. That's followed by the more uptempo Frederick Alonso team-up The Message, with its rolling beats, ponderous b-line and lingering synth washes. Next comes Vega, credited to Domestic Science pres The Deep Funkers, which is a mellow, drifty late night affair, before finally Domestic Science and Koala bring us Contact itself, which has echoes of classic deep Jersey garage and which for me is the pick of a fine crop.

If you're looking for peaktime stompers you'll be out of luck here, but if it's deep, sumptuous, late-night house grooves you want, step right on in...
