Mitch Wellings - Playing Our Game

  • Perfect melancholic funk.

  • In the increasingly saturated world of limited-run, vinyl-only labels, it can be hard to really stand out. But Mitch Wellings, the force behind Space Tours, has done alright for himself. His first two releases were perfectly melodic and airy house records with a taste of UK garage in the low-end. Space Tours 003 might be the best yet. I, for one, can't make it through the A1, "Playing Our Game," without hitting rewind. It's half tears-on-the-dance-floor, half playful bleeps cascading across a bouncy bassline—and that's all before the two breakdowns that crank the pathos up to 11.
