RSD016 // Drums From Detroit

by Jaco Matthews & Peter Croce



One of Detroit’s brightest young house producer is Jaco Matthews, and his vinyl release on Rocksteady Disco is long overdue. “Lesson One” leads off the EP, a peak hour deep afro house track highlighting Jaco’s brilliant drum programming. “Snacks” follows, a bouncy and swinging composition with stuttering vocals and enough jack to make Robert Owens proud. On the flip is Jaco’s massive remix of Peter Croce’s “Revival”, full of moody pads, uplifting piano, driving 909, and a timeless message for our strange times.
