For the uninitiated, DEMOU is the new alias of the hugely prolific Cozzy D, a producer who has been a real staple in the house scene for well over a decade. Aiming for further ventures and adventures with disco and house music, DEMOU delivers a cracking single for Richy Ahmed’s Four Thirty Two label, backed with a remix from another fine British talent, Mella Dee.
‘Sheftalia’ comes correct with techno sensibilities and pumping house grooves. A rebounding stab pings off a suitably charged rhythm, as a feint vocal loop unfurls in a cloak of stirring strings, forging a real fierce club cut! Mella Dee has been firing on all cylinders of late, using his Warehouse Music label as an imprint for his pacey and heavy funky techno jams, and he’s deployed his trademark jacked up and loopified characteristics all over a slammin’ remix of ‘Sheftalia’ here.
A further injection of disco boogie flavours are pumped into ‘Never’, as DEMOU gets busy once more with an MPC house style jam filled with a ton of funk. Simple, yet uplifting, the spirit of disco is well and truly alive on tracks like this.
