Today, a track from a somewhat fresh face in house, Pierre LX, who cut his teeth in Brazil and now resides in London. His upcoming EP on Initial Cuts, Sketch Drive, is astonishing in its pure homage to deep, US house along the lines of older Delano Smith and more mellow Kerri Chandler. "Gabita" is a 120-bpm mellow bit, with booming kicks, sopping hand-claps, a subtle little bass-line, and lush backing synths. A familiar descending melody, horn punctuations and truly crystalline tambourine bits round out this track, making for some perfect house music that is sure to please even the Euro-haters on this side of the pond. The EP comes out in February, and features an awesome remix by Jus-Ed, so watch for it!

Pierre LX- Gabita

Later today, thinking some left-field hip-hop? Yeah.
