Rayner & Wisqo – Take It Back EP
A-side Take It Back is a tuff-ish but midpaced affair that adds layer upon layer of tribal percussion and FX sounds as it builds, all topped off with a spoken/whispered male vocal exhorting you to "just believe" and "do that funky thing" and suchlike. Over on the B, meanwhile, Lady Vox is a chunky, bleepy tech-houser, a notch more driving than the A, with insistent female vocal stabs and handclaps giving it a disco-fied feel while slightly proggy synths add dancefloor energy.
Solid stuff on both sides but I think Lady Vox edges it, just.
Out: This week
About: Unrivaled is of course part of the Endemic Digital camp, while you can find out more about Rayner + Wisqo at their Soundcloud page.
