Murat Vural AKA Processing Vessel is at the helm for the label's ninth release

A fine deep house two-tracker here from a US producer who should be no stranger to regular iDJ readers by now, Murat Vural AKA Processing Vessel, and a UK label who are making their very first appearance on these pages – northeast-based Deep Fix Recordings, from whom this is the ninth release since they launched last year.

The A-side, Spicy itself, opens with a 4/4 kick and crisp hi-hats before quickly bringing in a fat, lolloping bassline and the half-whispered, half-spoken foreign language bite that serves by way of a vocal. By the one-minute mark we're fully up and running, after which it's time time to just sit back and let the drawn-out pads, haunting keys and occasional, barely-there sax parps whisk you away to dreamland. But good as Spicy is, it's more one for the warm-up or very late play… it's the B-side Psychedelic that'd be the better bet for getting 'em moving out on the floor with its slamming kick, heavily effected throbbin', wobbly synths and snatches of spoken male vocal. 

Quality stuff from a quality young UK label that, to be fair, should have some iDJ love a lot sooner than this…
