Modern figureheads of acid house, DJ and production duo Posthuman launch into the summer with The Depth EP on There Is Love In You. Fresh off the back of EPs on I Love Acid, Tusk Wax, Craigie Knowes & Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, this groove-laden, acid-flecked outing delves deep into the sounds of classic house.
Lead track ‘Chevrolet’ featuring London based singer Josh Caffé sets the vibe perfectly. Catchy vocals meet crunchy drum sequences and playful pad patterns, rolling steady with a stripped-back groove and touches of smooth chords. A proper deep summertime banger. ‘The Depth’ unleashes face-melting acid basslines crashing together with classic 808 drum hits. A scorching dancefloor weapon. ‘Jupiter Traxx’ takes the EP in a swerving into oddball territory, withd charged broken percussion colliding with eerie vocals and wild sax hits for a classic proto-electro number. ‘My House My Rules’ closes out the EP: a classic drum track that slowly builds until the introduction of heavily processed spoken word melodies and washed out chords. A steady-rolling depth-charged journey to the end.
