P-Rez – “Shits & Giggles EP”

Whiskey Pickle heads back to its housier roots with the label’s second artist EP from Fresno, California’s mover and shaker Steve Perez, aka P-Rez. Bounce House, Blunted Funk, and Not So Fast Records (which he manages) have all found a place for P-Rez’s funky, quirky house music sound. The Shits & Giggles EP, a follow up release to 2009’s, Valley Fever EP on Whiskey Pickle, features four jackin’ house offerings coupled with cheeky vocal samples and squelchy synth sounds. The door opens with “Hit It” and its bubbling 808 bass line and sparkly percussion, lending a nice framework for hypnotic, dubby stabs and instructions for lunacy. “So Hot!” gets groovy with syncopated rhythms and a cameo from everyone’s favorite, Agrestic “Ball-Buster” Celia. The flip side carries the dance floor even further into funky territory as “Traps” unfolds with a rolling bass line that’ll make any wallflower shake a tail feather. “Feeling Frisky” is the perfect soundtrack to a warm summer’s night drive down the Las Vegas strip, on the prowl for connection, deep vibes, and beautiful creatures.
