REVIEW: Brett Gould - Mess With The Freak EP

Review: Brett Gould – Mess With The Freak EP

Glasgow Underground.

Rating: 9/10.

Brett Gould has become somewhat of a household name (on the underground scene) over the last year. With releases on Elrow, Sola, Snatch!, Solid Grooves, Lapsus and more, he has been a mainstay of the Beatport top 40 gaining support from Steve Lawler, Mark Knight, Prok & Fitch and BBC Radio’s Monki

And now for his second release of 2018 he returns to Glasgow Underground a whopping seven years after his last release on the highly respected label. Today we take a listen to both tracks from the two track EP and let you know our humble opinion.

‘Mess With The Freak’ is a blistering opener to the EP. Crisp and clean hats roll over a deep, dirty analogue groove while acid frequencies float in and out giving the track a sense of urgency. This track is a testament to Brett’s aptitude for production, creating a multi-dimensional beacon in the current sea of flat, cookie-cutter tech house. 

‘Hurry Up’ has a distinctly Electro feel. The nineties-esque vocal and shuffling tops mainline energy to the heart of the track while leaving enough space in the mix for an array of reverb heavy clangs and pops to build the atmosphere. 

Overall this is an excellent release from Brett and I have no doubt you will hear both these tracks at least three times a night in every club for the foreseeable future. 

You can buy ‘Mess With the Freak’ here on Beatport, and ‘Hurry Up’ here on Traxsource.
