There are times in which you can clearly mark a producer’s evolution. When they stop inching towards growth and make a bold statement of change in capability and vision. Such is the case with this EP from Detroit-based disco guru, Pontchartrain. After a few years of steadily pushing out some significant pieces of work that have increasingly straddled the line between originals and edits, and nearly a decade of studio experience, his long overdue official house music debutante has arrived. Featuring detroit local soul artist, Coko Buttafli laying down some blistering vocals with a clearly positive house music message, on top of live percussion and keys, and bold analog drum rhythms, pontch has created a solid diva-house gem. The sneaky festival-ready banger, “Loose”, performed, mixed, and overdubbed live, provides some fantastic contrast and versatility to the release. A Mr. G-esque remix by DJ phenom Just Alexander and
the musical journey of Topher Horn’s evolving and deep version on the flipside make this a well rounded record that will undoubtedly stay in your bag for a while, and will find it’s way back in for years to come.
