Roam Recordings is a beloved San Francisco imprint now
entering the digital age with gusto. The label was started in 2001 by bay area DJs
JP Soul and Chad Mitchell, not
only releasing the founders' material but as fine records by the likes of
Justin Martin & Sammy D,
Demarkus Lewis,Rhythm Plate, and
Lance DeSardi. The label returns a little over a decade from
its inception with a fantastic trio of west coast style house tracks from JP
Soul. It's led by the slinky "Backsliding"
which is sure to thrill dance floors with its solid quirky synth lines, call and response
chants, and huge stereo field. "Freespin" follows this with a
dubby slow motion house jam, pulsing with swimming chords and electric melody. A perfect
cut to greet the sunrise and smooth out the morning. Finally, "Evil
Outing" brings us to somewhat darker tech-house fare, but with a healthy
amount of bounce and percussive energy. As an added bonus, there's a remix of
"Backsliding" from everyone's favorite imprisoned wizard Q-Burns Abstract
Message, trading on live-sounding house beats, backwards synth pads,
spiraling synth swirls, and juicy cowbell rhythms. These four cuts welcome
Roam Recordings back into the fold in style stay tuned for
future releases as well as reissues of the label's impressive back catalog.

'Backsliding' drops out for the old school rave noises."

is lovely, too!"
