Still few can match Pépé Bradock for characterful deep house funk that doesn’t age. “Major I” has thick percussion slaps, weighty leads and an overall full frequency rubdown that’ll tickle the stacks beautifully. Shunning any obvious passages of melody for a decidedly more adventurous route, the track’s transportive and heady nature elevates it far beyond a strictly nightclub-orientated audiance. “Major II” sets to work with deep rumbles and distant sonars, the slowly encrouching lead stabs fizzing like wet phosphorous on the wax – parfait!

B side sees two instances of “Finger-Snapped”. On the first, Bradock’s weighty synth programming and skewiff yet enjoyable beats characterize the track. Delicate keys do swoon away in the background but its that upfront kick that’ll grab you by the balls. “Finger-Snapped II” sees a growling, flat-lined techno experiment which demonstrates a sonic know-how, almost willingly turning tracks inside out and keeping you hanging on tenterhooks throughout. A pretty storming four tracks from house music’s crazy French uncle. Recommended.
