Educated Underground Dance Music 12″ – Praterei

From their Soundcloud, the Austrians announce: “The Praterei harks back to the halcyon days of clubs like The Loft and The Paradise Garage, fully dedicated to underground dance music. Expect a mixture of extra deep house and techno with a generous helping of disco thrown in from the vaults of internationally known deep-diggin’ vinyl enthusiasts.”

Their 6th 12″ serves as a nice teaser for the forthcoming Chicago Skyway 12″ on Altered Moods Recordings, as well as a roundup for some of the key players in the lo-fi deep-house movement going on right now. Opening with a perky but uncharacteristically restrained tune from Snuff Crew, the compilation also includes material from Praterei regular 7 Citizens and UK up-and-comer Ethyl. The tracks all stay effortlessly deep and introspective without much melancholy, it’s a finely balanced and cohesive set of tunes and could serve as a gentle introduction to any of these artists that you already should have but might not have checked out.
