Boomkat Product Review:
Toronto-born, London-based DJ and snack enthusiast Peach fittingly joins Peach Discs (no relation) for her debut EP, a limber selection of smart tech-house flexers that find a sweet spot between Orlando Voorn and the Timedance catalog.
Peach's long-running self-titled radio show has been an NTS highlight for a few years now, and tuned-in listeners will already have an idea of her musical identity. On "Galaxy Girl" she shows off skills as a producer, expanding her musical interests with four cuts of pristine, rolling tech-house that's just been spliced together with a wink and a bag of Haribo gummy worms.
Opening track 'Buttercup' glues a womping bassline to lightly swung percussion that gives just the slightest hint of a bassline, while 'Clover's Groove' hits into more trad territory with feathery synth melodies, looping vocals and the kind of rave stabs that'll have you fantasizing about the mythical qualities of pills 30 years ago. But it's the title track that's our pick - a time-dilating, stuttering groover that sounds as deep as anything you'd expect to see emerging from the Timedance stable, but with a bouncy kick drum 4 the dancers.
