UK duo TwoSlice come to Sidney Charles' fledgling Heavy House Society

What we have here is only the sixth release from Sidney Charles's Heavy House Society. And if bottom-heavy house grooves with a distinct garage-y bump sound like your idea of a good time, it's one you'll want to check for immediately.

Three tracks in four mixes make up the Masterplan EP. Masterplan itself is up first, a rolling, bassy groover sitting right on the house/tech-house cusp, with the bassline topped with jaunty, slightly off-kilter keys of the kind that characterised so many early Kerri Chandler productions, many years ago. With energy to spare and a cheeky, twistin' little synth riff marking out the turn of phrases, this is a floor-filler for sure. 14FIVE, which follows, comes from the more minimal end of the tech-house spectrum with its endless array of micro-sounds, but then we're back in more bumpin' territory for Way Back, which comes in two rubs: TwoSlice's Original and the Okain Remix, which again veers towards minimal but keeps the funk intact.

Four very solid cuts that should move booties on any dancefloor where house music is played.

Words: Russell Deeks
