French duo and live act Modern House Quintet have released a host of well-received EPs of late via their own self-titled label. Their latest endeavour sees them perk up under a new alias (and a new label), Cyclades, that again sees them demonstrate their always assured and discerning house sound. The Donoussa EP features three tracks of outstanding quality, each one of which is sure to go down a real treat on the dancefloor.

Opening the release is the sounds of the title track, a sombre, melancholy house jam that echoes the sound favoured by their fellow countrymen, Lazare Hoche. Full of twinkling melodies and sun-kissed vibes from the off, it’s the perfect track with which to welcome in these colder climes. Serene but also robust, it’s 808 drums and clever guitar work means it will go down a treat regardless of what stage of the night it’s allowed to roam free.

“Conte d'été” is another effort that showcases the guys’ knack for the more considered side of house music. Beautifully restrained and characterised by a series of rich chords, it’s another catchy track that’s sure to go down a treat amongst discerning house heads. Last but not least is the 909 heavy, “Grand Amour”. The most ‘banging’ of all the tracks on offer, its shrewd snares and Rhodes chords make for a fitting way to sign off the release. An EP of various moods and sounds, MHQ’s work as Cyclades is just the latest addition to a discography of great depth and substance. Stunning work all round.
