Deymare/Satore/Yusuke Yamamoto – The Dead Bullfighters – Minuendo Recordings

EVERY time I write about Ernie I feel like a gawpy teenager penning an anonymous love letter to the subject of their desire. I’m totally smitten. Who can blame me though? Virtually everything the man lends his considerable talents to – whether as a DJ, producer or label curator – is beautifully coated with a fine dusting of pure quality.

So here we go again. Swoon. Ernie’s Madrid-based Minuendo return with yet another carefully collated and crafted various artists EP that is, as always, bang on and shows many a wannabe label how a deep house release should be done.

Featuring faces old and new to the imprint, The Dead Bullfighters is a fabulous four-track treat.

Fabulous Finnish producer Deymare [who was responsible for the stonking Rhythm Box EP on Minuendo four years back] takes over side one with a couple of choice cuts. Keeping the tempo firmly in check, both Meditation and Rise are deep house of the more cerebral yet groovy kind.

Dynamic Spanish producer Satore is no stranger to the label either [the underrated and super-limited A Winter’s Tale was released by the imprint in 2011] and the Palma-based artist even has history with us too [check it here]. His contribution, Moving Soul, is exactly the kind of funk-heavy, prime percussive workout many of us have come to expect from him.

Rapidly making a name for himself and making his Minuendo debut is Japanese producer Yusuke Yamamoto (Série Limitée Records/Canary). A run out on Minuendo will do his credentials no harm at all and his gorgeously chugging My House is an apt and fitting calling card to round off another must-have from Madrid.
