Sum of Luv Pt 1 & 2
Austrian imprint Luv Shack reaches its tenth release this summer and drops a two-part, 8 track special release, ‘Sum Of Luv’ Pt 1 & 2, featuring some fine house music from Burnin Tears, LeSale, Rocco Raimundo and more.
Luv Shack has been quietly putting out low slung, proper deep house and disco over the past few years and winning ardent support from The Revenge, Mock & Toof, Horse Meat Disco Djs, Ewan Pearson and many more. Here, the label show cases some of it’s artists and new signings on a split 12” and digital release.
From the rousing sounds of Burnin Tears & Jakobin’s ‘Heartcore’ to the disco drenched ‘On The Beach’ (Mike Bruns Rmx) by LeSale, the opening salvo of this release is one of powerful dancefloor nous. Rocco Raimundo’s blissed-out ‘Made For Each Other’ takes things deeper while Lee Stevens & Domino get remixed into a loose, organic groove by the Voyeurrhythm crew.
Stevens and Domino open the second part of ‘Sum of Luv’ with some crafty sample manipulation before the Roctiv remix of Burnin Tears squeezes in some unctuous 303 action. Dj Rocca goes for the heads down depths with ‘Ring Bell’ before Jakobin & Domino go tougher again with a bass heavy, rave inflected number ,‘Struggle’ (Radio Diffusion Rmx).
‘Sum of Luv’ is an impressive insight into what Luv Shack have been doing over the past couple of years, and Parts 1 and 2 are released mid-June and mid July respectively.
