Shur-I-Kan’s association with Freerange dates right back to 2000 when he remixed Audiomontage’s Flyin’ High. Since then, Tom Szirtes has been a regular on the label, releasing two LP’s and ten EP’s which have all showcased his passion for the more ‘musical’ side of house music, stemming from his love of jazz and fusion legend Pat Metheny and his own skills as an accomplished keyboard player.
On his latest outing entitled ‘State Of Emergency’, Shur-I-Kan throws a curveball, going heads-down acid on the title track and providing one of his biggest dance-floor cuts to date in the process. That said, the warm production, subtle textures and deeper elements are never that far away as vocal hits drift in and out of the mix and filtering pads remind us that it’s still resolutely a Shur-I-Kan record.
Next up there is ‘Out At Night’, a track whose simple uplifting chord stabs bring a touch of tropical warmth. Whilst rounding off the EP there is ‘Three Of A Kind’, a fat-snared, big-bottomed belter with echoing melodic line.
