Label owner Gonya steps up with two exuberant, live-sounding jams
Sundries Digital boss Igor Gonya comes to his own label for the first time (!) with this two-track EP.
On the A, Potion itself is a funk-fuelled deep house groover, with a chanted chorus and complex, toppy percussion that lend it something of a "live" feel, while brass fanfares and a disco b-line keep things moving along nicely. There's a cool 70s-sounding break just shy of the three-minute mark, too. Flip it and you'll find Budai Hotel, which has a distinctly similar MO/sound palette but leans more towards jazz-funk than straight-up funk, and which features some ker-razy flute action to boot.
Two very solid cuts that'll keep deep house floors full for sure.
