It’s housey, disco-ish edit o’clock here at GetDownGood, this time in the form of Andy Ash’s sublime ‘Mason in My Basin’, a cheeky re-working of Eddie Kendrick’s ‘Darling, Come Back Home’. It’s beautifully done, balancing a solid groove with a lovely vocal sample. The Dance EP it’s taken from is out now on Foto Recordings. Enjoy!
This is out on Wolf on November 20th. Really funky vibes, smashing break in the middle. Lovely. 3 other gems also coming on the EP from KRL, Brothers Rise, and OOft! You definitely want to get it. Wolf

Don’t really like Mark Ronson. Think he’s pretty over-rated, famous for being famous, etc (sorry Mark if you’re reading this….) Luckily, U-Tern have taken his fairly average new single, removed all the rubbish vocals, and made it into a really nice disco tune. The keen GetDownGooders amongst you will have picked this up in the Magician mix I put up back here. It’s top dog, and it’s out on iTunes soon.
Recently, a lot of the music I come across – especially dance music – seems to have changed it’s roots. The synthy, miminalist influence of the 80′s has made way to the bouncy, overtly joyous themes of the 90′s…no bad thing in my book. Developing this thought, I spoke to some major 90′s influenced players – Soul Clap, Tensnake and Lee Foss – to get their thoughts on why the decade of bum bags and baggy pants are making a comeback…
One of his first offerings to the world, a few months back, Ontario native Sean Roman released this along with another track ‘Lick’ earlier this year. Amazingly skillful, this is loads of fun. It grooves along steadily, make no mistake this is a disco house record, but with all the bounce, synth stabs and strange vocals of one of its ‘Hot Natured’ or ‘Crosstown’ counterparts.
