Nicholas - When I Think About (Foul and Sunk)

I came home a few days ago and found a brown record mailer on my doorstep. We tend to order records all over the place (it's that collector's itch I guess) but I wasn't actually expecting any packages for a change. As it happens we were dealing with a promo done the oldfashioned way: a proper test pressing with liner notes from the new Swiss Foul & Sunk imprint. Massive brownie points for taking the oldschool route here fellas!

The label aims to provide 'quality music for your dancefloor' and does exactly that on their debut release by our prolific Italian friend Nicholas. His 'When I Think About' is a vintage sounding, synth-heavy deephouse stomper with big drums and a classic vocal sample that keeps things going rather nicely. We've seen Nicholas tear The Horse and Groom apart in London playing these stylings, so you're in for a treat if you like your house classy, deep and with a raw edge. If you're not keen on wailing divas there's an instrumental version too (though in our modest opinions the vocal works really well). It's Hauke Freer's remix that makes a really good record an exceptional one though. His rerub is moody, deep, driving haunting and mesmerizing, all at the same time. Hard to catch its brilliance in words, so best have a listen to the clip below:

Limited vinyl only release, so best snap this up quickly and watch the punters rush towards to booth.

Ace debut, congrats to all involved!
