Luna Records UK · Brett Jacobs - Beat Parade EP

Luna Records return this September with Brett Jacobs ‘Beat Parade’ EP, comprising three original cuts from the London born producer.

A prominent name on the London DJ circuit and musically educated at London’s Islington Music Workshop, Jacobs is steadily building a reputable coterie of followers with the likes of Tini, Chris Lattner and Enzo Siragusa catching on to his deep, dub house sound.

Luna Records has seen in releases from So Inagawa, Hector, Dan Drastic and Santorini, all encompassing a recurring theme of deep and raw house sounds, here Jacobs’ ‘Beat Parade‘ EP slots graciously in amongst the back catalogue.

‘Longitude’ opens the release, driven by its infectious creeping bass-line and short sharp percussive hits the track takes on a hooky form full of deft intricacies. Steadily building to a breaking point the track comes into fruition as the arrangement drops, a classic hi-string is introduced alongside a raw synth chord perfectly slotted into the groove to make this a deep house heavy hitter. Title track ‘Beat Parade’ follows, employing sparse tonal hits as its atmospheric building blocks creating an airy, ethereal vibe.

Tight-knit punchy drum programming provides the backbone, while a subtle sub-bass line adds a hefty roll to the cut while various vocal licks and filtered electronic blips shuffle around the groove adding to the movement. To close the package we have, ‘Bajar’, enveloping stripped back percussion and refined automation touches, the track maintains a smoothly flowing dynamic while delicate filter sweeps and reverb tails meander around the shuffling shakers and crisp claps. A retro blues style vocal is introduced adding a Chicago flavouring to the composition while the low-end tonal bass hits create a bumping motion sure to keep heads nodding. Brett Jacobs ‘Beat Parade’ EP is out on Luna Records 1st September 2012.
