Birmingham-based vinyl only imprint Shadow City continue to pump out raw, disco-fied, house sounds with the return of Harry Parsons and the ‘Rain’ EP.
UK producer Harry Parsons is back on Birmingham-based label Shadow City with three tracks of steroid pumped house music with a disco twist. With this being the imprints only third release we are keeping our eyes peeled for everything Shadow City releases as of now.
Title-track ‘Rain’ is a punchy 4/4 arrangements that’s flavoured by lush strings and a melancholic diva vocal. Great breakdowns lead to syncopated drum builds that explode with horns, funky guitar licks and some clever vocal chops. ‘Dance Music’ is a swinging, jacked up groove that blows up from the off with jazzy horn notes, looped vocal samples and plunging organ chords. Italo-Disco tribute ‘All We Do Is Real’ closes the EP with its 80’s styled drum hits, enticing female vocal and intergalactic fx that all combine to create a hybrid of nu-disco with 80’s groove nuances.
Harry Parsons’ ‘Rain’ is available now to buy here via Shadow City.
