Jesse Calosso presents Boogeyman Fam Jams and is a mouthwatering new collection of essential house sounds from close label associates.
New Yorker Calosso is the owner and head of A&R behind this fresh new label as well as an assured producer in his own right. He has a wide variety of styles in his arsenal, and here links up with like-minded producers to great effect.
Powerless (with AJ Christou) opens up with a stripped back minimal groove. The bass scurries next to grubby synth lines with lots of little details adding colour to the beats, before a fresh vocal and searched chords really elevate it to the next level. Greenhouse (with Fleur Shore) is a dark and dirty roller, with sleazy ghetto drums and rapped vocals filled with attitude. House Arrest (with Jean Pierre) then gets balmy and cosmic with a hurried groove and neon pads taking you into the next dimension. Bulotek (with TRANGAZ) closes out on a perfectly well swung and dubbed out house groove, with lush jazz chords and neat vocals.
This is stylish late night music for the real heads out there.
