HERCULES AND THE LOVE AFFAIR - 'DO YOU FEEL THE SAME?'
A bit of an oldie here from 2014; the faultless Hercules and the Love Affair shine once again on a full Defected digital release with the 7 track EP - Do You Feel the Same. The track pulses with an acid tinged bass-line, and throwback chords, featuring shimmering vocals from Gustaph.
Highlights of the E.P include the Purple Disco Machine Remix, who slow the tempo down and give the track a deep disco swagger. The atmosphere builds patiently until eventually some divine piano chords create a celestial crescendo at the bridge.
Elsewhere, the Todd Terry remix brings a techno nastiness to the fray and 6th Borough Project strip back and add some ghetto - acid charm. The real talent here is HATLA's ability to consistently refresh classic house sounds and make them sound as exciting and relevant as ever.
