With a discography of releases dating back to 1991, New York native Henry Maldonado credits his home city as inspiration and motivation for his art. As part of the House 2 House trio on Strictly Rhythm, Maldonado and crew would fire out a relentless assault of New York style sampled and deep house tracks coveted by New York mainstays Little Louie Vega, Kenny Dope Gonzalez, Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez, Timmy Regisford to name but a few.
Today Henry produces and DJs as Son Of Sound and continues to push the limits of the underground by taking his knowledge of the past, combining it with a deep love for the city he grew up in and a penchant for quality underground club culture.
Henry’s debut on Local Talk is nothing less than a proper power package.
Violent Mood Things start things in a superb way with a catchy beat, before a clever string sample and several layers of synths lifts the track to new hights.
Robert Arnold aka Cuthead has impressed us with his releases on Uncanny Valley and Kunst:stoff Breakz and delivers a remix that has all the Cuthead-trademarks. Stammering drumming, impeccable bass programming and dreamy samples.
The title track True Indeed comes in two versions. On the vinyl you got the vocal and as an digital bonus we've included an instrumental. How does it sound? Let's just say this : It's the perfect example that all you need is a beat, a few chords and a bass line to make a track that won’t leave your head for quite a while. Add a spoken vocal for that little extra house magic.
