12seven has already had exclusive plays by Gilles Peterson, Rob da Bank, Mary Anne Hobbs and John Kennedy. Part Chicago, part Detroit and part a warehouse during the early hours somewhere in our collective memory. Different layers of keys and a rumbling bass line punch out deep house that melt back in time but are distinctly now. Overlaid is a simple, sparse vocal sample that uplifts and haunts in the distinct way only Various can manage.
Key on the B side continues the House vain and opens with intro that asks you to question what is about to come as erratic drums and keyboards crawl towards the body of the tune. When the vocals kick in Key continues its sinister soundtrack but takes a reflective path, drifting off with the lyrics. Key is everything that Various are about, haunting, deep soundtracks that trigger rhythmic memory clicks.
