James Dexter – Show Me EP

Three original tracks painted in various deep, techy and soulful shades add up here to another fine release from the excellent Tokyo Red Recordings.

Playing With Time is a soulful deep groove with some of that early (’95-’96) UK garage gloss to it… back in the days when it was all about Tuff Jam and those MK dubs. Show Me is another garage-tinged cut, this time looking back to vintage Jersey, and then finally Sunset is a slightly techier affair, but still with soulful vox to add warmth – it's this track that you suspect might be getting the plays from the east London trendsters, though if pushed Playing With Time is the the pick of a strong bunch for me.

Quality vibes for those that know.

Out: This week

About: Tokyo Red is of course my good friend DJ Sydney's label… find 'em on MySpace or at Sydney's own website.
