Gene’s Liquor serve up a healthy measure of Delroy Edwards material
You could say it’s been a big week for Delroy Edwards. Well in actual fact, that really depends on what appearance on the front cover of the L.A Times‘ ‘Arts & Books’ supplement means to the producer. Either way, he’s isn’t resting on his laurels, putting a new solo effort out on his new(ish) Gene’s Liquor label yesterday.
Where the Delroy-run L.A. Club Resource has focused on releasing obtuse techno and the like, the inaugural Gene’s Liquor 12″ was a step into reasonably unfamiliar territory. A disco-tinged house cut from relative unknown Laurent became the label’s first release and Delroy’s follow-up is imbued with a similar warmth. Opening with a title track combining what sounds like a pitched-up, muted sample of Usher’s breakthrough single and a swinging framework, this lo-fi house number sets the tone for the rest of the record.
