NOT MY BUSINESS EP

Circus Company welcomes a new artist on the label: the Homewreckers. Named after a track by Southern Soul legend Sam Dees, the production collective from Germany has been moving and breaking new ground between Detroit techno, abstract funk and melancholic disco music since 1995. Their debut album Amercian Ruhr has been released on Unique Records in 2008 and creates an absolutely distinctive sound which seems to come straight out of a from a feverish dream populated by the ghostlike figures of Larry Graham, Juan Atkins, Frank Hutter, Bernard Edwards, Erik B or Al Green.

The Not My Business EP perfectly shows how the Homewreckers flow on these two original tracks. You feel the funk, you feel Detroit and you feel a deep and unique sense of music. Cherry on the cake, you got a remix from San Francisco based artist Dave Aju who is back on the label after his much acclaimed album Open Wide released in 2008.

Not My Business isn’t their first shoot on the label as they were already part of last months Snuggle & Slap Circus Company compilation with a brilliant « Live-Version » of Chicago Urban Blues.

Review by: Bleed

Und wieder ein Killerrelease. Zwei Tracks der Homewreckers, die vom ersten Groove an völlig für sich stehen. Deepe Vocals, schwere Akkorde, Stakkato bis mitten ins Herz gepflockt, und eine Stimmung, die sich einfach immer mehr in ihre dunkle, aber mehr als gerechte Detroitwelt hineinrockt. Wer sich Redshape als Soul vorstellen kann, der ist nah dran an “Not My Business”, und “Chicago Urban Blues” ist einer der schwergewichtigsten deepen Housetracks des Jahres. Konzentration, Bass und eine zeitlose Tiefe. Der Remix von Dave Aju klappert sich fast in eine Bluesoper hinein und ist dennoch so euphorisch, dass man Angst bekommt, auf dem Dancefloor platzen sie gleich.

Review by: Oli Warwick

Coming seemingly out of nowhere when in fact they’ve been going for thirteen years, this trio from Ruhr were last seen on Circus’s ‘Snuggle & Slap’ CD. This EP showcases a truly mesmerising sound that takes in the best elements of warm, emotive techno and house, stitched together with a decidedly live feel. Unique and essential food for the soul.
