After warm welcome of the Soul Habitat's first EP, second one continues the journey into darker side of modern underground deep house music. Soulful flowing vibes and melodic bass sequences opens up the EP's title track - "Midnight Groove". This fine piece of music proves that underground deep house can be really funky too. Sampled classic sax parts merged together with heavy stomping beats, shuffling percussions and moody soft chords - a real soulful house DJ's must have. Second track - "It's Been A While" - is minimalistic dark themed roller. Groovy rhythm experiments and classic vocal samples combined with chord stabs makes this track an essential DJ tool. Deep organ riffs can put the party into a deep hypnotic state - just play it loud and see the result. B side is all about old school. "Detroit Detour" is a tribute to the true roots of house and techno music. Raw 909 beat, deep bass, dirty organ samples, high pitched strings and classic synthesizer sounds from the previous era is what makes this tune feel like a "classic" dancefloor filler from back in the days. Plain old school tune with a modern twist - this is how one could easily describe it. Plus there's a synthesizer melody section right in the middle of the track that opens time travel gate and brings back all the best clubbing memories from the 90's. Be sure to listen to the whole track - it's definitely not only about pumping and smashing. Very special remix treatment on "Detroit Detour" comes from the NYC original DJ and producer - Doug Gomez. If You're into atmospheric tracks that has this strong detroit / NY influenced vibe, this is the right tune for You. Mad bass drops, unusual mysterious synth parts and smooth beats - all wrapped up in interesting arrangement. Doug's trademark big bass, ambient pads and refreshing melodies always equals big tune - he's the one to watch for in the nearest future.
