Doc Daneeka - Walk.Man Vol 4

£10.00

Doc Daneeka's Walk Man series, launched earlier this year with little fan fare or publicity, has quickly become a reliable source of attractive, sample-heavy club jams. As you'd expect, there's more no-nonsense gold on this fourth volume. "Cloud Break" and "Fly Away" both make merry with chopped and looped samples from classic disco cuts, with the producer underpinning them with bustling new drums that don't strive too hard to beef up already heavy grooves. Closer "Ur Salvation" goes in a slightly different direction, layering filtered string sweeps and dewy-eyed easy listening instrumentation over a bustling, UK-funky influenced drum track. Perhaps the real highlight, though, is sparkling XXXY collaboration "Don't You", a deliciously positive and melodious fusion of dream house textures and cowbell-heavy tropical house beats.
