Franck Roger & Mandel Turner
- Walking Papers EP
Home Invasion | 01.03.2017
Early March saw Franck Roger continue with his Home Invasion imprint with the ‘Walking Papers’ EP, comprising three solo tracks and one collaboration with Mandel Turner.
French producer and DJ Franck Roger has been at the forefront of the global underground house scene for nearly two decades, heading up the revered Real Tone imprint amongst releases for DJ Deep’s Deeply Rooted, Carl Craig’s Planet E, Innervisions and Paris’s Versatile amongst many others. Here though we see Franck pushing forward with his Home Invasion imprint, a vinyl only platform predominantly for his own productions and occasional releases from other house acts.
Up first is ‘Floating’ which sees Roger deliver authentic understated house with the finesse one has come to expect from his productions, fuelled by spiralling pad swells, smooth swinging rhythms and thunderous subs. ‘No Rush’ follows and tips the focus over to a more energy fuelled aesthetic via frenzied disco house tinged sample chops, fluttering delays and dusty drum samples.
On the flip Franck teams up once again with regular vocal collaborator Mandel Turner to create an infectious slice of Chicago influenced house fuelled by bumpy drums, throbbing bass and an amalgamation of soulful vocal lines from Turner. ‘7 Sins’ then closes out the package on a dubbed out tip with echoing stab sequences, reverberated sonic blips and an intricately evolving drum machine workout.
Franck Rogers & Mandel Turner’s ‘Walking Papers’ EP is out on Home Invasion 1st March 2017.
