Format B – Gospel (Pleasurekraft & Jaceo ‘Psalm 69’ Remix)
Pleasurekraft has proven to be tech house’s unsinkable ship of 2014, giving the contentious sub-genre enough substance for fans new and old to sink their teeth into. Back alongside familiar production partner Jaceo, the trio of talents takes Format:B’s latest under their wing for yet more luminary manoeuvres in the name of house music’s groovier remits. Firm yet minimalistic lead work meets a hot bead of chunky grooves and warped vocal work for their reinterpretation of “Gospel,” giving the original cut a far thicker skinned second wind as per the outfit’s revered reputation. It builds, sways and delivers one of the sound’s most pivotal releases of the year, furthering the speculation that Pleasurekraft and co. are essential listening for the unjilted generation of tech house enthusiasts.
