Sirus Hood is an artist who you can see breathing OLD SKOOL all over, you can hear strongly that he has been influenced by Chicago House and all sorts of Underground House Music from the 90s, which is a very good thing we think. Developing his own trademark sound has seen him releasing on labels like Dirtybird,Toolroom or LouLou Records, which also ain’t a shame at all. His fresh new release on WOW! follows up where he left off, a serious techy three tracker that has a lot of NRG and pace in it.
Kicking off is title-named track ‘Love’, a four-to-the-floor number that sees Hood utilising the Ghetto House-inducing vocals he has namechecked previously, also working in some tougher, dub-heavy moments throughout the six-minute offering.‘Get Down’ follows, a pounding-groover featuring a myriad of bubbling off-kilter sound effects, a simple-but-effective twisted synth melody, stirring percussion and looped male vocals that are interspersed throughout.
Closing this release is German duo Mat.Joe’s remix of ‘Get Down’, transforming the original into a fast-paced House track that builds its intensity via a manipulated synth riff that builds and builds and builds!
