13th Hour Vol. 4

Swales & Tom Jarmey


Two British up-and-comers--Swales and Tom Jarmey-- are on offer, packing a V/A with four deep house cuts of the highest order. Swales opens up the EP with Desire, a true as toast piano house banger that is as much 1989 as it is 2019. And the A2 likewise pays homage to the genesis of the genre, with Swales flipping Chuck Roberts' legendary 'My House' vocal into Roots, a late-night burner of a tune.

On the B-side Tom Jarmey comes in strong on his first physical release, Voices In My Head mixing irresistibly luscious pads with floor-pumping hats and a vocal sample for the ages. And Tom finishes out the EP with the mellifluous, delicate and (in one word) beautiful track At Night. This is, on all counts, an EP to be savored.
