EP Review: Je Ne Sais Quoi – Gemini Chris

Of all the years of reviewing albums and EPs on NEW LEASE MUSIC, I am quite ashamed to say that I’ve never covered a house music album or EP. Well GEMINI CHRIS has broken that void and slipped his new EP entitled ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi’ into the blog’s limelight.

The Jamaican DJ take us back, way back to the late eighties/early nineties where techno house was rife, with infectious thumps of electronic hooks, coupled with the underlying bass which somehow gives the arrangements that extra fire.

Although this London-residing beat maestro arguably takes heavy influences from notable electronic acts such as Derrick May (Strings of Life), 808 State and Shades and Rhythm, he adds his own magic to techno house of the aforementioned era, giving it that certain Je Ne Sais Quoi… check out his set below:

Must Listens: Real Love, I Be Missing You, Imperfection

Song of the Day: When She Call – Anthony Seeker

Today spicy dish, comes from ANTHONY SEEKER’s latest single, ‘When She Call’.
