Innershades – That Girl

Label: Wicked Bass

Wicked Bass follow up top releases from Huerco S and Parris Mitchell with their third physical pressing in the form of a debut from Belgian producer Innershades. The newcomer brings a rough slice of house whose retro style is matched only by its raw dancefloor heat. Given the dusty mastering and compressed percussion you'd be forgiven for mistaking this for an old Dance Mania cut, and indeed the comparison rings true thanks to Innershades' effective fusion of a few simple layers. A dangerous bassline and hollow kicks lay the ground work, but it’s the details that do the damage here; an uneasy synth wash and tuned toms standing out from the fuzz.

That Girl / That Girl (Locked Groove She's A Hoe Remix) / That Girl (Vakula Remix)

The original is a hard act to follow, but a canny choices of remixers ensure both offerings are worthwhile. First off Hotflush darling Locked Groove takes a cleaver to the original, leaving grimy 303 scratches and spare percussive twitches to duel it out over the remains of the original’s melodies. It’s a darker, moodier take on the already brooding original, but Locked Groove builds the tension masterfully as the track goes on. Ukrainian analog house don Vakula steps up for the second remix, bringing the original’s Chicago-referencing elements to the fore along with psychedelic organ stabs and serrated synthlines. Overall it’s a muscular package for Innershades’ debut, bristling with personality and raw character, altogether augmented rather than stifled by its retro stylings.
