Scissor & Thread ramp up the heat with the debut release by Virginia’s deep house don, DJ Aakmael. “Take It Back” wastes no time with its hard-hitting kick and springy bass holding court. “What Iz Deep House” is a lesson for those who don’t know what true deep house is — woozy, edgy chords take the spotlight alongside a slurring, dissociated voice. The reverb-laden pads and piano chord stabs of “Sands” submerges the floor in pelagic atmosphere. Frank & Tony take things even deeper with their late night “Breakaway Dub”, applying their signature bass line touch and hi-hat shuffle.
