Giom - Play On (Fly In A Jam Records)

From the eastern Mediterranean island country of Cyprus comes Fly In A Jam Records, a label working with various styles of underground dance music but aiming to keep the proceedings deep and funky. This is suitably expressed with the label’s debut release from the sensation that is Giom, the French-born, London-based house music DJ and producer of growing renown. Giom’s been on quite a trajectory since his debut on DJ Heather’s Blackcherry imprint, following with work for Om Records, LCG Music, and, most recently, Lost My Dog. He’s also one half of funky house music duo Bobby and Klein. Giom launches Fly In A Jam Records with “Play On,” a typically slinky cut with a bold, empowering bass line, tough, crisp rhythms, and a building array of modulated chords and melodies within its steady 119 beats per minute. It’s a winning display of late-night dance floor funk, ready to capture the sets of house music DJs everywhere.
