Gerry Read: “U Got No God Damn Groove” (Fourth Wave, 2013)

Gerry Read’s lo-fi mutant house tracks are fairly distinct — they usually share the same grimy lack of polish and exploit the rougher edges to the best possible effect. The first time I heard his stuff I wasn’t convinced, but he’s won me over time and time again. He strikes me as the progeny of Theo Parrish crossed with the crudest early tracks of Daft Punk, a raw sound that feels like pure instinct.
