[Release] Making a stand-out debut on the Visionquest imprint, North American bred Brett Johnson steps up with Move Power – a dense and heady double hitter of quirky chemical romance and rolling sharp edged house with an evocative lick of vocals courtesy of Ellipsis. Dallas native Brett Johnson has been in the business of blowing up dance floors for quite some time and after this release out on Visionquest, I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from him in the future.

A-side Move Power featuring the enigmatic vocals of Andre Lewis aka Ellipsis is apeak time banger with lashings of cutting edge soul. Always exploring futuristic house sounds, Brett fuses left field modern magic with analogue keys and otherworldly FX to create a musical head-trip for the senses. Big percussion, tough rhythms, twisted acid lines and complex melodic textures combine and crescendo with a bang while the eerily tinged vocals yield emotion to compel the dancefloor. The Move Power (Dub) ascends with a wonked out euphoric quality for an alternative trip. Although my hearts true love lies with deep, my favorite off the EP would definitely be the B-side ‘Furtherer’, which is a prime example of Brett’s propensity for groove. A rolling tech cut with a tough exterior and bubbling centre, its intricate percussive patterns and bleeps will make it a certified winner on the floor, worked with bizarre samples for the most mind-bending hour of the night. Get down to this one darlings …
