Following on from releases this year on Tom Budden's ALiVE Recordings and Asadinho's RvS Music, London producer Ben Gomori serves up a slice of house infused with a classic soul/funk lick as part of the Melted One various artists compilation. The collection also features tracks from the likes of VIVa Music and Hot Creations talent Darius Syrossian and a slew of upcoming names, and was curated by Mancunian DJ and Clique resident Kill Suarez.
Peace Sign is a chunky slice of house driven by percussive loops and driving bass, all topped off with a mellifluous, yearning guitar sample that lends a sombre mood to the track. Sustained strings and moody, distorted organ chords in the breakdowns add to the tension, and create a track that grooves hard with a dramatic undercurrent.
2014 is looking like Ben's busiest year yet, with long-awaited EPs forthcoming on Stranjjur, BMKLTSCH and UNER's forthcoming new label, plus remixes for Nurvous, HearThuG & Stee Downes and some big mainstream acts on the way. That's not to mention his weekly Turned On Podcast, his monthly Monologues. mix series where he invites DJ/producers to create a mix of their own material, his monthly Heads Down night at London's Kings Head Members Club, and another podcast project involving Jackmaster in the works too.
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
The most exciting movies set to drop in the coming months.
