Gave You Love is another track that harks back to the classic Naked sound, with a simply gorgeous (and familiar) vocal atop dreamy synth meanderings and crisp, unhurried beats. The title track is a cheeky dancefloor romp that spruces up the deep house beats with some frankly ludicrous early 80s jazz-funk/electrofunk synth-bass frolics, while Hold Me Tight (featuring Thea C) is a slow-groovin' space-disco smoocher Dave Lee himself would be proud of, with that funky-ass fretless bass making a welcome reappearance. And finally When In Green reminds me of classic 'nu Brit deep' of the mid-90s, which is never a bad thing. I think the title might be a suggestion as to when it'll sound particularly good…
A varied EP then that shows off a lot of talent, and without relying on big-name remixes either. Let's hope there's more soon.
Out: This week
About: This comes on the currently v.hot Beats Me Music, who are based down on the south coast. This is only number 9 but they're already on my watchlist for sure, they ought to be on yours too.
