Boomkat Product Review:
One of our favourite micro house labels Kalk Pets continues to turn up more gems in the form of this charming 12" from Paul Frick. The A-side is a beautifully unexpected and thoroughly satisfying house track 'Knock on wood, babe' featuring the Marimba skillz of Matthias Engler, who weaves daintily intricate patterns around Frick's Omar S or Stephan Laubner styled raw house beat for a brilliantly winning combination. 'Slow Dance on the flip' is another dope house track, but the final icing on this tasty cake is the hilarious 'Steal my heart' feat. Crawford's bone dry commentary on the track that it accompanies, rendering the samples and explaining where this snare came from or chatting about Janis Joplin's soul. Better yet, the track itself is a killer, with Akufen/Todd Edwards style itchy-funk house edits and a bumping bassline. Recommended for any fans of Dandy Jack, Koze, Villalobos or great house music.
