As an Edinburgh native, I always look forward to hearing some local talent, and the latest release on Edinburgh-based Hush Hush Recordings offers the latest track from local DJ Craig H. Smith’s Shaw Height Assembly, with remixes by George T and Five20East. The Original Mix on side A offers some fairly standard filtered loop house – it’s a good track, but nothing that really grabs you. With loop-based house music, the track depends on the quality of the sample used, and while the loop sounds great at the start, by the end of the track, it just gets a wee bit boring. A good track that never fully delivers on its initial promise. The beats track that follows is good, and is a useful DJ tool.

On the B-side, there are remixes from George T (another Edinburgh local) and Five20East. As a huge George T fan, I came to this track with high expectations, and on first listen was somewhat disappointed. George T’s tracks and remixes vary between funky, loop driven house, and more tech-house offerings. This remix falls into the latter category. There’s nothing wrong with that, but the first time round it didn’t do anything for me. However, after a couple of listens it all falls into place – George has yet again delivered a quality track that bounces along in a staccato fashion, with plenty of bass and synth stabs.

The real gem on this record, however, is the Five20East remix. Kicking off with the sample “Watch yer bass bins, I’m tellin’ yer”, this mix throws out the 4/4 house beats, and delivers a great breaks track with a bass line reminiscent of early LFO releases on Warp, with an old school “j-j-j-jack” sample thrown in for good measure. Its perhaps less accessible than the other mixes, but offers a great tool for any DJ wishing to stir things up a bit on the dance floor!
