The conclusion of Frits Wentink’s trilogy of EP’s under the extremely reviewer-friendly name of “Two Bar House Music & Chord Stuff” is a pack of four classic-style house tracks circa 125bpm, with light stepping beats and claps and lovely melodic synth work, FX and little vocal snippets- never a full vocal- wandering confidently and warmly over the top.
Numbered rather than named, each track does have its own character. “Theme 9” is bright and quite energetic, with some nice sharp-cut cymbal work. “Theme 10” is more stripped back, focussing on a bouncy little synth bassline and some rather cheesy, cheap-sounding (but strangely not in a bad way) organ keys. “Theme 11” has a touch of the funk and a bit of a Lenny D vibe, before “Theme 12” loops back to “Theme 9”’s vibe but less vocal, with shades of Todd Edwards.
A really nice bundle of feel-good house stuff that does exactly what it says on the packaging.
