Bristol boy Dylan Debut returns to Induction Muzic
Now based in Ibiza, Bristol native Dylan Debut is known for releases on labels such as Eukatech, Wasabi, Chronovision and Household Digital, but here we find him returning to another of his music's regular haunts, Cesar Del Rio and Isaac Indart's Induction Muzic, with an excellent four-track house EP.
First up is Jaxx Up itself, which centres around a warping keyboard sound, spoken male "you got ME all jacked up" vox and assorted accompanying female wails and vocal snips, all underpinned by crisp (and fairly lively) deep house drums. That's followed by Jaxed Up [Tatsu RMX], which – as far as I can tell – isn't a remix of the title cut but a different track altogether, one with chunkier, more rolling drums and a hazier, dreamier feel overall, as well as a sampled, spoken female intro.
Broodway Ruff comes next, opening with a simple 4/4 kick then slowly building into a sunny, Ibiza/Miami-style chugger of the kind you might have heard at any point in the past 20 years or so, with some barely-there diva wails helping to accentuate the retro/classic feel. And then completing the EP is Man Hood, which again rides no-nonsense kicks but in this case takes us into the blissed-out, eyes-wide-shut zone before unleashing its secret weapon, lashings of fat, warm, 303-like bass.
Deep enough for the connoisseurs, energetic enough for bigger rooms, this is one for house lovers to check for sure.
