Viva Recordings is proud to welcome artist Mr. Bootsauce from Los Angeles, known for joints on some respectable labels such as Salted, Large, and Good For You Records. His early house music pedigree was carved out in Montreal and later at a successful weekly party called UNITY right in the heart of Los Angeles. Mr. Bootsauce has always elevated his craft by making sure his cuts translated to deep thumping grooves where a simple shake or a head-bob would get the party going.
Tracing his roots back to jazz and rock, these influences are present in his Viva Recordings debut, the three-track Do It Right EP. It promises to fill various styles of DJ crates containing house music to deep house to nu-disco. Straight, bounding bass, thumping grooves, and precise rhythm elements all come to fore in Do It Right.
The EP begins with the title track, exhibiting crisp drums, warm pads carrying the melody, and cool vocal drops rhythmically placed throughout. “But I Know” follows adding some uptempo shuffle to the proceedings. It’s a flurry of percussion partnered with a gritty low end ride. The EP closes with “If I Speak,” a special treat for the depths of an after-hours gathering. Its sparse arrangement is complimented with a cool spoken vocal and atmospheric flourishes galore. Yep, this EP goes deep.
