Freedom EP at Juno Records//
From the label: J Morrison smashed it with his debut track on Maximum Joy pt. 1, the highly addictive deep house cut ‘Some Fella’. This mid tempo Afro-house track had that rare combination of being super deep – but with the power to rock any dance floor. The Freedom EP, J Morrison’s first Full EP release is the same, and more. The lead track calls up a looped and filtered afrobeat sample that just keeps on giving. Reminiscent of Cottam’s early work, and sure to be a hit in the sunshine of a festival stage or a dark club. “Stay High” is more driving, tribal, druggy affair that reminds us Peace Division in their prime. Late night heads down dance floor vibes, with a killer vocal sample that creates real magic. “Soft Play” is a deeper track and just like ‘Some Fella’ the arrangement and choice of samples merge create another floor friendly that will be a useful tool for a wide range of DJs. Alfresco Disco co-founder Lukas steps up for remix duties and flips the samples of Freedom for a more choppy, chicago style bumping house track – which rounds off the E.P rather nicely we think. We hope you think so too!
