Chuck Love - Illusion / Slip N Slide Horns (Vino Recordings)

Minneapolis house music label Vino Recordings welcomes Chuck Love back to the fold with a spicy two track release highlighting his distinct, soulful sound laced with outstanding musicianship. Chuck Love needs little introduction, first appearing on Vino with the Take Me EP in 2004 and following this with appearances on the likes of Om Records, Salted Music, and his own Love Network. With “Illusion” Chuck offers a tale of love gone awry over a smooth disco-flavored production featuring a killer analog synth bass and string stabs that drip with emotion. “Slip N Slide Horns” is also Chuck Love at his best, complete with an in-your-face flute solo and late night, dubbed-out trumpet licks. Chuck’s vocals are top notch on both tracks, but instrumentals are also available in this single for the deeper dance floors. Prime stuff here from Vino Recordings and Chuck Love … dig in!
