Review: Hailing from the Rhythm Plate multiverse, Pressed For Time is one of the many outposts carrying the work of Matlock's finest house music protagonists. Reaching beyond the regular roster of Goshawk, YSE and the full-blown 'Plate, this latest transmission calls on deep cover UK house crew BRS, also known as British Rhythm Services, who step up with some crucial workouts for sophisticated dancefloors. The quartet of Ben Vecara, Rob Evans, Steve Wilson & Dom Thompson have a sizable legacy behind them, not least from the early 00s when they were regularly rolling out releases for the likes of 20:20 Vision, Cyclo and Friends & Families. After a quiet patch their return is marked out by a broad spectrum of deep house delights locked onto the kind of shuffled grooves that Rhythm Plate heads should be more than happy with, and plenty of loose, live-sounding keys to boot.
Review: Pressed For Time did a great job of unearthing British deep house cult heroes BRS with the Situation E.P. last year, and now they're back with another slab of high grade club tackle from this criminally overlooked outfit. "Devil's Music" is a luscious, easy-paced groover that drips with honey-coated synth lines to make you go "hmmmm." Pressed For Time regular YSE knows what's up, nudging the track into a headier deep house zone that would go down perfect in a woozy, smoke filled late hour of the party. "Better For That!" is a cheeky little organ laced number that straddles the deep house and minimal shuffle crowds with its sharp, snappy arrangement. Then Goshawk lands a killer remix of "Out Of Reach" which heads into freaky, swinging territory for the cool cats to get loose to.
