SouthWestSeven is a new project for Belfast duo Ric McClelland and Sean Grieve, with an ethos of supplying some quality disco, jazz funk, soul & boogie all with a Deep House twist.
You may know Ric McClelland as the brainchild behind Scope, with a string of quality deep house releases & remixes for the like of Urban Torque, NRK and Plastic City to name but a few. Sean has been behind the S-Groove moniker with releases on Forensic and Dutchie Records
The two guys have gone into the studio over the last number of months and their hard work has come to fruition with a self titled EP released this week as the third in the Kolour Ltd Series for Kolour Recordings.
Following on from Eddie C and Alex Agore in this limited edition vinyl-only series, the lads have provided 3 killer tracks which are sure to wreak havoc on any dancefloor.
Sensation is very much on a feel-good vibe, with a looped female vocal, providing a groove reminiscent of Armand Van Helden’s Flowerz. The Only One is dripping with funk, with a phat bass line to tease the crowd and bring it right up a notch. And our pick of a great bunch is the excellent My Ride complete with killer vocal, heavy bass line, soaring strings and stunning build to a euphoric piano section.
And we’re not the only ones who think this is a great package of songs – My Ride has featured recently in Sleazybeat’s Melbourne Deepcast 22, and Sensation was featured on a Future Disco radio show, and chosen as his No 1 track in the recent RA Chart by Ooft!
The record is out now, pick it up at Juno, or usual suspects – be quick with this very limited pressing though.
We’re also delighted to announce that SouthWestSeven will provide an exclusive all-vinyl session for our isodisco mix series, so stay tuned for full interview and a very special mix from the guys.
