In times of visible lack of creativity within the House Music community it is always nice to be able to write the opposite here. I’m of course talking about the hugely talented Walter Graffeo aka Walter G (again) who comes up with another belter of a track on Luis Radios Groovebom label.

Like most of his productions, ‘Rising Life’ is a freshly cooked slice of Soulful House with many signature elements-elements which such a track needs. There we have a slid beat, nice wobbling bass plus the usual instruments-mainly organ and brass, but also sublime key work. Label honcho Luis Radio, who is assisted by one of the greatest musicians this planet has to offer, Pietro Nicosia, takes a close look on percussion and even more organ and is able to deliver an even more delicate version than the Original. Needless to say this is soulful summer House Music of the highest order. Great!
