Next up on Francis Harris’ exceptional own imprint Scissors & Thread, comes a collaboration with DJ Aakmael.
Aakmael has build a reputation for some of the deepest, rawest house music sounds coming out of the States, releasing well received tracks on the likes Freerange Records, Release Sustain, Kolour Dogmatik and NDATL.

Returning to Scissors & Thread, Aakmael and label boss Harris cook up an intoxicating stew over this 5 track EP. Each share a track each and work together on the fifth, while also remixing each others tracks.

First up Aakmael’s Deep Muzik- which pretty much carries out its mission statement of a title. Skittering drums, a shuffling groove and deep keys and chords make up this an essential opener.

Frank’s (aka Francis Harris) All That Light Mix shows another side, finding pockets of space and developing the fizzing percussion to produce an equally affecting piece of music.

Sharing production duties from the outset on Mercy of Means, the guys slip into an easy mid tempo groove with plenty of depth - the rhythm rolls along and offers the perfect basis for some sublime melodic touches.

Frank’s Part Song also hones in on the subtle deep grooves, bumping, slightly filtered and saturated drums provide the main body, with beautiful washes and keys finding their way through,

Aakmael’s remix beefs up the groove somewhat, making the snares snap harder and kick hit a little stronger, but the essence of the tracks melodic atmosphere remains perfectly in place.
