Javonntte – Mind Over Matter 12″ – Sistrum

cs622834-01a-bigA big favourite around the shop, the latest release on Sistrum is extra housey for Patrice Scott’s deep dance imprint. Javonntte released a pair of 12″s in 2016, the earlier was on Kai Alce’s NDATL.

Here, Jazzmatazz shows shades of St Germain, Theme From Javonntte is a classic Chicago stomp, Capricorn is somewhere in between with a heavy swing and groovy bassline. On the flip, This Melody introduces a vocal lead, following along a hooky melodic theme.

There’s enough variation across the record that it would be easy to imagine each of the songs inhabiting different phases of a single deep house DJ set. As the 30th record on Sistrum, it shows the ten year old label is patiently cultivating its own lineage of club music while incorporating new signings into the mix: for Javonntte it’s only his third solo record (and only the 2nd widely available.)
