Justin Harris: Some More Freaky Stuff Justin Harris has put together a classy, addictive set of sweet-ass house sounds for all you mellow, rhythmic freaks. The mix maintains a brisk, but smooth pace and incorporates melodic grooves with minimal, but well placed vocals to create atmosphere. The programming is sublime, gently drawing you in with tracks like Doc L. Junior’s simmering "Preacher Man" that combines samples of an enthusiastic preacher low down in the mix supplemented with velvet-wrapped snares. Julius Papp’s "Libido" adds a Balearic flavor with rise-and-shine acoustic guitars. The groove continues with Mayaku’s "This Is Mayaku’s Theme" and its hypnotic bass line and cerebral melodic layers. Other highlights include Turner’s quietly soulful "Been Out" and Rubba J.’s "Past Bedtime" that uplifts with jazzy keyboard phrases. Some More Freaky Stuff is a collection of supremely understated funky house that manages to consistently tickle your emotional, feel-good sweet spot. It’s groovy enough to start out the night, and melodic enough for a relaxing nightcap. Every track’s a winner and the mix is executed seamlessly and subtly. A real treat for any deep house fan, if you ain’t too proud, Harris’ll have you begging for more of his freaky stuff.
