London based producer Chamboché drops a superb new EP on Black Key Records, featuring 3 new cuts of deep, melodic house backed with 2 remixes from BLM…
DJ/producer Sam Williams, AKA Chamboché, has been building an enviable reputation over the last few years. His upstart Nottingham based house and techno night, Zleep, at Stealth has been a flying success, whilst his releases for Jiscomusic offshoot Under the Shade have gained him a solid following and support from the likes of Ewan Pearson, Steve Bug, Amé and Tensnake. Williams has recently moved to London and, alongside this stellar release for Black Key, he has records upcoming on vinyl only label TUSK Wax and Under the Shade, he also looks forward to the launch of his own Bricolage Records label.
The EP opens with ‘Mello’, a deep and laidback slice of house music that draws on warm bass, rich stabs and FX to build a perfect disco infused late night masterpiece. The original is followed by 2 remixes from the much lauded BLM, normally to be found gracing labels such as Jus Ed’s Underground Quality or the excellent Tsuba and Fear of Flying. Here he takes ‘Mello’ and reworks it into a rough and raw house cut with an intense yet deep atmosphere with the second remix going deeper still, using sparse elements from the original to create an atmospheric bomb.
Next up we have the excellent ‘Show It’, a percussive workout with an infectious acid b-line and plenty of tape delay to get the floor moving. Final cut, ‘Perpetual Motion’, journeys into deeper and mellower territory with a mesmerising track that draws you in before dropping a classic and uplifting top riff, sublime.
“Metacoma EP” is releases on vinyl, 28th May 2012. Strictly limited 300 press, with no repress.
