review from Juno Records;

Viennese label Luv Shack are on course to scoop first prize in breakthrough house label of 2012 with label regulars Jakobin and Domino at the helm on this four track 12" package of groove laden goodness. The title track "Squeeze Me" and its respective remix from LeSale both bump and bounce with the kind of jack reminiscent of early Freerange or Inland Knights output, while facedown production "Lately" is more analogue, acid and tech inspired. There's a definite hallmark of Brett Johnson / early Classic Records to this production, and if that's just a tad too retro and stripped back, jump on the deeply cosmic Burnin Tears remix. Feel the Luv.

review from Piccadilly Records:

Newly-crowned kings of the nu-Balearic-house movement, Luv Shack records bring poster boys Jakobin and Domino back into the studio for some more wizzardry. "Squeeze Me" is minimal and luminescent, a metronomic but highly detrailed hi-hat / clap pattern wrapping around a simple but infectious keyboard riff and padded out with syncopated vocal snippets. Its a formula we all know and love, but the lads pull it off with the smooth, high fidelity style we've come to expect from them. This'll have the tweeters tweaking and the subs rumbling out of the Funktion1 stacks all winter.... LeSale gets asigned to remix duties and rolls out a surprisingly housey jam, with him usually supplying the more laid back joints for the label. His mix utilizes hypnotic percussion patterns and superbly timed breaks and drops to create a late night deep groover of the highest order. On the flip "Lately" works a 'donk'-like wooden stab across a swinging but subtle rhythm, very robotic and sure to get people pulling funny shapes on the floor. A glowing piano motif rides constantly through the track, while sensual strings and emotive vocal samples adds a soft velvety cushion. A realy beauty of a track. Finally, we couldn't forget Burnin Tears could we?! (it wouldn't be Luv Shack without them...) They go even deeper on "Lately", with bassline so sensual it should be x-rated, cascading chords and winding lead lines blend together perfectly, creating the ultimate in late-night bliss. More essential stuff from the Luv Shack camp.

Sixth instalment from the Shack and another generous exult in aural pleasing for the intelligent of House heads out there. Two original tracks, two in-house remixes, you know the score with these guys…this is how they work.

Key to the label and artists success is being reliable and consistent with the flow, something obviously being picked up as the label once again is topping the right charts and getting the props from the right people. Expect no different with 006.

This time label stalwarts Jakobin & Domino turn on the burners and get among the beats and give us a something to cheer and chat about.Jackmeister’s J & D bang out “Squeeze Me” to start things off and it’s another compelling and infectious groove. It doesn’t let go and if you don’t feel totally squeezed by the end of it, then you probably wasn’t worth squeezing in the first place. Lots of Jack, lots of big soggy wet claps and massive dosages of dark dingy warehouse parties from back in the day.

LeSale do the honours with the Remax of “Squeeze Me” and hit the drums just a little harder. Darker and denser, the rework is more forceful and a little more denoting the current and now.

“Lately” leads the flip and is in keeping with the Luv Shack philosophy of aesthetics. That continuum cosmic boogie groove rolls on forever, always infectious and quite possible contagious at the same time. Something that Luv Shack do really well, is “the groove”. It’s always extremely cooperative and considerate to what is around it.

Burnin Tears Revice brings up the tail of this four tracker and is again another well-adjusted reworking. “Lately” gets a few more components and elements thrown into the mix but still keeping the track assertive and with a nice subtle authority to it. Again, from the Shack, good honest House music…from good honest people. Enjoy!
