Review: Jaime Read presents Life In The Sea (battibatti bb05)

Another high quality three tracker from Malta's deep house BattiBatti label, which to be honest with every new release is setting a higher standard to follow. Number five of BattiBatti is courtesy of Brighton UK producer Jaime Read presenting the all instrumental three track Life In The Sea. Here Jaime starts the dances with the slow tempo Hanged Groove, which is an amazing instrumental tune. To The Bone as the title says goes very old school Chicago with the groove receiving high influence from the 1987 house hit "Work It To The Bone" by LNR i.e. Rick Lenoir and Larry Thompson on Jam Records. With To The Bone BattiBatti and Read also enter the Tech House and big room potential as I do feel this tune to be suitable for the larger clubs, and in a diverse varied sets. You have a deep set you want to lift up, or more friendly music you want to take to the underground, "To The Bone" can definitely do both with ease. Life In The Sea is a pad deep build up of over eleven minutes, but again in very old school Chicago House here in more Larry Heard manner influenced rhythms, high hats and percussion's, but with very Italo disco style pads and bass lines.
