As well as being able to introduce and push brilliant up and coming artists such as Ben Sun or Tornado Wallace, we’re equally proud to bring you brand new material from a bona fide master of his trade here on Delusions Of Grandeur. Someone who has been releasing amazing music for almost two decades and a man whose integrity, ingenuity and raw talent have seen him rise to the upper echelons of underground dance music. With releases on esteemed labels such as Rush Hour, Peacefrog, Planet E and Sonar Kollektiv, Matt ‘Recloose’ Chicoine continues to impress ensuring he stays in demand whether it be as a DJ, live as Recloose or as part of Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra. On top of this he still manages to find time to provide the revered weekly radio show Hit It And Quit It on his home town of Auckland’s George FM.
Title track Don’t Get Me Wrong kicks off in true Recloose style showcasing perfectly his distinctive and diverse approach by melding together dusty disco, soulful house and synth-heavy jazz and funk with the greatest of ease.
Shimmy is up next treading a similar path but bringing filtering stabs, gated vocal samples and a liquid bassline to the table. Recloose works the arrangement perfectly striking the balance between a rolling groove for the dancefloor, live-sounding drops and edits and spacey FX. All in all a high energy track with originality and flare.
Finally we have D.O.G regular Tornado Wallace onboard to provide a remix which takes the original into far deeper territory. TW drops the BPM’s, adds an arpeggiating marimba line and builds up the synths resulting in a late night vibe which compliments the vocal perfectly.
