Ahead of it’s latest ‘Family Affair’ compilation Lost My Dog deliver the third of three sampler singles featuring compiler Pete Dafeet with remixes from Allessio Arcangeli and Moodymanc.
Dafeet’s ‘Piano Track’ opens the sampler and as the name suggests its a chord driven, no-nonsense house track with tinges of garage melted in via the bass hook, dub reggae style vocals are also thrown in to the mix rounding off the old school flavourings with style. ‘Stacks’ follows and encapsulates a classic new-jersey house vibe with its hooky electronic bass, raw house stabs and preachy vocal.
Next up are the remixes; firstly Italian producer Allessio Arcangelli turns in a groove-led house rework driven by short sharp stabs and an insistent percussive movement. 20:20 visions Moodymanc delivers his ‘d-d-Dubble dub dub’ interpretation of Pete’s ‘Stutter’ to close off the remixes, a pacey affair motivated by a deep subby bass-lick, natural woodblock and shaker percussion with deft touches through automation. A warm string melody is introduced to the latter stages further fuelling the integral organic nature embodied in all of his work.
Closing the sampler is ‘Rush’, a soulful deep-house cut with all the fundamentals found in 90’s house tracks, loose swung drums, hi-strings and a cutting electric piano hook create yet another stylish cut from Pete that oozes class.
