Cheap Thrills Records

New Zealander via Berlin Philippa is a producer and DJ whose passion for house music, tireless commitment to her craft and ear for what makes a dance floor tick is slowly and surely starting to pay off. With her recent release 'Rainy Nights' on Slothboogie and 'Things I'd Like To Be' for Razor-N-Tape getting a lot of love, Philippa continues to deliver the goods, which has led to remixes for Fat Freddy's Drop ('The Drop') and Roach Motel ('Faith').Here on the 'Latent Magic' EP we're treated to three new tracks which highlight Philippa's deft touch and musical approach to making interesting and leftfield house music. Opener 'Hold' sets the tone with lush orchestral strings, crunchy drums and a bouncing analog synth bassline which drives the track along perfectly. The title track uses a similarly wide-ranging sound palette, mixing up the electronic and organic, but goes heavier on the epic, arpeggiating synths for a spacious and uplifting genre-defying track to lift the spirits. Closing out we have 'There It Is' which has hints of Mr Scruff with looping horn stabs, live drum groove and rolling electric bassline. All in all another mighty fine Philippa release which reminds us of the early days of Freerange, when artists such as Square One, Shur-i-kan and Jimpster were melding live musicians with electronics to make a refreshing, UK-centric take on house music. Tracklisting:A1. Hold B1. Latent Magic B2. There It Is
