The first thing I think of when I hear EZLV’s “Ordinary Thing” is Toro y Moi’s latest album Anything in Return in regards to its flow and choice of instrumentation, so head down and listen to it immediately if that’s something you enjoy. However, this does have an identity all of its own. This French-Canadian duo have been around for a couple of years now and they’re making their mark on the scene with ease. “Ordinary Thing” is a six and half minute package of classic house goodness. This release is the inaugural release on 100% Silk‘s new imprint House of Silk, so if you end up liking and buying this you’re basically buying a piece of history. Now, since the other tracks are not available for preview as far as I know (I will be happy to be proven wrong if you link to something in the comments below) I can’t speak to them, but going off of this one track – if you like house, this is all you. Check it out and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

Hot-trotting French-Canadian dirty-disco duo EZLV kick off SILK’s new DJ imprint, House Of Silk, with four fresh & carefree club classix led by “Home,” the lush uptown house anthem by multi-faceted Melbourne vocalist/MC/boheme Romy Hoffman. The rest of the EP spans funked-out nu-groove edits of prized Salsoul sides, a magnetizingly deluxe “Home” deelite-dub by EZLV, plus a swank, androgynous slow-pitched re-imagining of the hard house heartbreaker “It’s Over Now.” Quebecois culture’s finest body-rocking export of late, crafted expressly 2 B N-Joyed. For fans of letting loose. Black vinyl 45 RPM 12 inches mastered by A.P. for maximum stereo physicality in hand-stamped and stickered sleeves. One time pressing of 275.

Price $9
