Brawther has more secret weapons than the CIA. The Driver is another — an exquisite piece of deep house made for how he DJs, which is probably how you DJ too. It’s on the A side of a two track EP from Cabinet, a German label that previously released his Fairground EP last year, the Soothing EP the year before that and has quite a lot of these sorts of tracks in their stockpile too.
The title track is electric — bumpy in the right spots, smooth in others with drums that steal the show and with a heavy bass in the bottom the whole way through. A track like this is so flexible it could be played two or three times in a night without anyone noticing what you’re up to. And what more could be said about “Basix”? I kept nudging the volume, higher and higher as the track progressed. It calls for it — it demands to be played loud, on the best and cleanest soundsystem you can get your hands on.
