Premiere – Gratts channels house music’s spiritual side on ‘Mantra’ | Juno Daily

Hear the ‘Klub Romance’ EP’s lead track right here

Gratts is back once again, hot on the heels of various Balearic outings like ‘Sun Circles’, ‘Pretty Lights’ and ‘Jour De Fete’ but this time he is in house mode.

This release comes under his new Trackhead T moniker and finds him keeping things raw and stripped back. For the sessions, the Belgian artist limited himself to using only around 12 channels maximum per tune. The ‘Klub Romance’ EP is the result and a track that harks back to his Berlin stomping ground, with deep but driving house cuts that have subtle hints of everyone from Felix Da Housecat to Boo Williams.

The EP isn’t out until January 15, but thanks to Gratts you can hear lead track ‘Mantra’ in full right now. It’s a real treat, too, with a low slung machine funk rhythms that bring Kevin Saunderson to mind, with some stirring spoken word rabble rousing that evokes the early, spiritual-heavy days of house music.
