Homework – Trumpet Express – Original Mix
After years of bringing the freshest underground house sounds to an ever-growing following in their home town of Amsterdam, these two Dutch youngsters (Homework) were catapulted onto the underground house clique following their head turning ‘Fissa Tune EP’ on Exploited earlier this year.
On meeting the guys on a recent trip to the ‘Dam and hearing the Trumpet Express demo; a hypnotic trumpet line combined with the duo’s illusory sampling style and underpinned by beautifully simple, yet pounding house beats, label boss Jesse Rose signed the EP (Beatport) quicker than you can say ‘where can I buy clogs and some tulip oil please?’
‘Behind The Fence’ and ‘The Rules of Hip’ provide an intoxicating change of scene. With the soulful vocals and swelling keys of ‘Behind The Fence’ and the driving conga rhythms and deft beats of ‘The Rules of Hip’ safely in your record bag many a dance floor will be left buzzing over the coming months.
