**** Drivetrain / Rennie Foster – Empress Enigma EP (Soiree Records International SRT179)

Eloquent deep house on a split EP. Detroit’s seasoned producer Derrick Thompson aka Drivetrain still runs on schedule with his Soiree imprint and drops two parts of “It Can Never Be The Same” on the A-side. Dub notes give a boost to the first part, while in the second half Drivetrain descends into jazzy daydreaming.

Rennie Foster from Canada, who has often collaborated with Motor City artists and labels, returns to the center floor with “Guiding Light” that illuminates the groovy side of life, while piano driven and acid soaked “I Haven’t Forgotten” takes a step closer to deep techno. Reliable tunes for the DJ bag.
