* This next release on Heist is a very special one for us. We’ve always stated how big our love for the US house sound is and we have worked as hard as we could to pay homage to the originators of that sound. In that sense, Heist 050 in many ways feels like a gift. On the one hand, it’s a gift to get to run a record label for such a long time and release the music we love. On the other hand, it’s a gift to get to work together with a group of artists that have shaped the sound and scene that we hold so close to our heart. The artists we’re talking about? The legendary Detroit group Scan7.

Scan7 don’t just release great records; they put out their music as a statement. A statement of staying true to the underground and a statement of supporting those in need of support, in need of a voice. This is as relevant today as it was back in 1993 when they released their seminal debut Ep ‘Black Moon Rising’ on Underground Resistance.

27 years later, they are still on top of their game with releases on Transmat, KMS, a recent album on Deeptrax, remixes on Classic and an upcoming reissue of their Tresor released manifest ‘The Resistance”. This EP for Heist is not one to miss. The ‘Sooner than later” EP features 3 original tracks ranging from soulful house to classic deep house, to funked-up techno.

The EP kicks of with “All for me”, a track that oozes Motor City funk with every beat. A bit of live bass, crowd chants, jazzy saxophones and some brilliant work on the keys all come together to create an undeniably warm and life-affirming song. This is soulful house the way it’s supposed to be and we’re sure you’ll be chanting along once you’re a few minutes in.

If you’ve heard any of their recent releases, you’ll know that Scan7 have a deeply rooted love for organs. With “The best is yet to come”, you’ll find out why. The chords, layered strings and sample chops work together for a vintage groove in true Scan7 style. At exactly the right time, you’ll find a new element popping in to add density, variation or buildup to the track, like the lovely pitch-bended lead coming in halfway through the song. This track is true to its genre, and done with so much style and musicality, that you can’t help but love it.

For the final track, we’re moving into deeper Detroit territory where you hear Scan7’s techno roots come into play. Rough 909 drums, live percussion and a sampled live bass all loop into a distinct groove, with organ hits coming in for just the right amount of shuffle.

So there you have it: Our 50th release on Heist. These 3 tracks represent what we love most about the Scan7 sound: They are soulful, powerful and full of funk. We’re not in any way slowing down and if anything, the music on this record pushes us to work even harder. To build bridges, support talent and showcase legends. Enjoy the music and play it from the heart.

Yours Sincerely,
Lars & Maarten
