Deadly production duo Shaun Reeves and Tuccillo mark Visionquest’s first release of 2017 with their ‘Origin 99’ EP. Comprising of four tracks of dub-laced house, the EP further enhances the label’s reputation as many DJs first port of call for dark underground house music.

‘Origin 99’ is first out of the pack, pacing the dancefloor like a well-honed greyhound; it springs along with some luscious deep liquid chords and nifty looping percussion. The track is intensified by some early 90’s sounding organ stabs which fire into the mix to great effect. Deep but urgent, it has enough fire in its belly to stoke up even the most reluctant of dancefloors.

Following in a similar deep and dubby vein is ‘One Two Five’. Old school chimes and a rumbling bass line lead this house groove, making it a real heads- down stomper. ‘Prowler’ comes next adding discordant 303 acid leads to the equation, along with some twisted and slightly demonic sounding male vocals.

Finally, comes Blood Moon, a low-slung slice of dark funky house which bumps on the back of a rather juicy bass line. Shakers, loose percussion, and fx hits rush to the fore of the mix while deep organ stabs and unnerving vocals add a hazy, early hours feel. Dubby underground grooves are the name of the game on this EP as these experienced collaborators take you on a dark but infectious trip down the rabbit hole.
