Donnie Tempo (inblueblackness) 5th Eptic Ep (trinidadian Deep Mix) Vinyl At Juno Records.
Donnie Tempo has a whole lot of projects to his name, and he's appeared on Alleviated Records, Moreaboutmusic and plenty of other releases in his time. He was last seen on Perpetual Rhythms back in 2017 with the Trak Register EP, and now he's back with another grip of infectious, bouncing and bumping jams. "Fly U (2010 Bangtraction Mix)" is a skipping, soaring jam that matches Ron Trent's musicality with a Detroit-flavoured urgency. Trinidadian Deep tackles the track on the A2 and makes it into a heady, transcendental delight. "Soul Baby" takes things on a more earthbound trajectory for steady cruising moments in the club, and then "Xpand (Swingtraction Mix)" casts off into deeper waters with a little more of that Motor City techno magic sprinkled on for good measure.
