Vincent Kwok returns to San Francisco's Transport Recordings for a trio of delectable house music treats, collected under the banner of the Tres EP. With recent cuts on SP Recordings, Double Cheese Records, and Soulsupplement Records – as well as his continuing work with DJ MFR's Transport imoprint – Vincent Kwok has been consistently providing dance floors with his warm and soulful house music sound for over a decade. The EP launches with "Tres", a potent mix of big, staccato chords, emotive vocal hits, classic organ bass, and uplifting vibes galore. This is followed by "Streets Coming Up" which is a deeper take on Kwok's style. Gentle, swirling pads, a percussive synth melody, and more well-placed vocal phrases make for a beautifully dreamy after-hours moment. "Feeling Alight" closes the release, continuing this enchanting late night feel. Filtered chords swell and wane under soulful vocal samples, creating a wonderfully dynamic ride. The masterful combination of the rolling bass line and polished house beats enhance things further. With the Tres EP, Vincent Kwok is in top form.
