It’s nice to see and hear a house release to come from the city renown for its steel mills and steel production. Which is what Pittsburgh Mass Authority – The Garage Commandments EP is. Pittsburgh Mass Authority – The Garage Commandments EP is a house vinyl EP from the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that was released in 1997. Greg Cash produced the EP on his Pittsburgh Soul Recordings label. This EP is a rarity and is now considered as a collectable as only 300 copies were issued on vinyl.
Some Luv’ is an excellent house song which is unsurprisingly similar to a love song. The vocal snippet “Some love and affection” come from the song Tina Turner – What’s Love Got To Do With It?. The beats are extremely thick and loud. The song is a perfect dance floor mover for the club and lounge. The groove of this song will get you going. Such true deep house style can be heard on this song also.
She’s A Big Girl Now uses a bunch of crunched up beats which sound very distorted over an extremely repetitive vocal sample. The beats are very light and luscious. The song was a banger in Pittsburgh clubs. A drop for this song begins at the 3:58 mark.
Can’t Nobody uses crunched up distorted dance beats over a looped vocal sample in the manner She’s A Big Girl Now did. The song uses an incorporated edge of 70’s funk blended in with dance house. This song was another song which was also a banger in Pittsburgh clubs.
My God Is Able uses vocal samples which explain the The 10 Commandments in garage house style mixed with dance house. Which is where The Garage Commandments came from.
I rate this EP 4/5****!
