kemistry Snakebite (12", £5.10)label: N.R.K.
North London duo Kemistry, aka Soy Mustafa and Alex Cellar, are relatively new names on the circuit, but on the strength of this two track 12”, expect to hear a lot more from these fellas in the future. This, their debut EP for NRK, will appeal to fans of the deeper, minimal house sound. ‘Snakebite’ is a haunting and mesmerising deep house cut with nice looping percussion, breathy vocals, melodic keys and Detroit-esque strings stabbing incessantly, building all the while to create a track really showing its American and European house influences. On the flip, ‘City Slang’ is a punchier house track, its melodious riff bubbling under and over whilst some 909 drums (sounding almost like Plastikman’s ‘Spastik’) weave through the track.
