Boomkat Product Review:
Agnes aka Ray Valioso offers up an EP of deep kickin' and dubby house under his Cavalier alias for the celebrated Drumpoet Community imprint. The A-side tracks 'The Beat' and 'Deep Rider' are particularly effective house shakers with sprightly uptempo vibes crafted for the late night dancing crew with shimmering dub chords and slinking percussion bearing some upper class production traits to make this a bit of a winner for fans of Luke Hess, Sascha Dive or Manuel Tur styles. The flipside slips into the wee hours with two deeper yet house grooves with distant strings, square basslines and warm chords for a neat Larry Heard meets Claro Intellecto look. Check!
