Alvarado with another deep house charmer,
This review is from: Mayasongs (Audio CD)
Following on from his previous 'Sun Children' album, David Alvarado's new album for Peacefrog is somewhat more tougher than his last outing.
But don't fear that doesn't mean David has gone all bangin' house on us, no, it just means whereas percussion and basslines took precendence on 'Sun Children', 'Mayasongs' sees a return to Alvarado's more familiar stomping beats, whether 4/4 or otherwise.
Rising atmospherics are very much Alvarado's forte and they remain a wonderful backdrop to his music. Deep House at it's near best. Some songs feature beautiful female vocals but it's the swirling 'Tampico' that stands out.
Peacefrog are the UK label to go for when looking for quality American Deep House. I don't know how they manage sign these high profile, quality artists but long may it continue.
