Originally released on Nurture records in 1999, Steps to Recovery is a bonafide deep house classic from the short live career of New Zealander Denver McCarthy. ‘Engaging Causelss Mercy’ is a contemplative, atmospheric affair with soft drums and celestial pads that could roll and roll forever and you’d never get tired. ‘The Quiet Mind’ is just as deep, but the spiralling pads and rippling melodies here are more colourful and charming. Both tracks are hugely spacious, luxurious affairs whilst ‘Constructing Space’ on the flip is a more stripped back and humid number that is more enclosed and oppressive for cosy back room spaces. Finally, the title track is a playful, elastic house track with heartwarming hooks and pinging drums. This tasteful EP shines a ligh t on some definitively deep tracks that really do deserve the attention that will now inevitably come their way.
