Chicago’s Home Audio Recordings, a forward-thinking house label commandeered by Angel Alanis, presents its latest release: an evocative four-tracker from the mysterious act Dance Spirit. Dance Spirit describe themselves as “an established techno outfit that wishes to remain anonymous.” Luckily, the music on this single speaks loudly in place of the artist, delivering confident slices of deep, expressive house music. “Stay” opens the set with a saucy groove, accentuated by bold yet dreamy chords and a mesmerizing, soulful vocal line that calmly creeps into the track. It’s sure to create that heavenly moment in the midst of an after-hours affair. “Where You Feel It” punches the rhythm up a bit, but thickly lays on the atmospherics through a spacey, effected vocal line and strange sonic accents. A persistent, melodic bass line with a slight retro feel keeps the drive solid and in place. Both “Stay” and “Where You Feel It” also come with Dub versions attached, taking things sparser and deeper with an emphasis on the low-end groove. It’s an outstanding release from Home Audio Recordings and Dance Spirit, sure to be a mainstay of DJ playlists for a long time.
