YSE feat Frank H Carter III – Foundations EP
This latest from Lost My Dog sees Yse teaming up once more with NYC vocalist Frank H Carter III, following on from their 2011 collab Guessing Games. Opener I Don't Want Love marries contemporary, chuggy deep/tech beats with Carter's Colonal Abrams-esque tonsils, while Magic In Your Eyes is a full-on soul number, a new departure for Yse.
But the real gems here are Play On and the Giom Remix of Magic In Your Eyes, both of which can safely be filed under 'proper garage, the way we used to'. The latter in particular, with its classic NJ organs and, in the mid-section, MK/Todd Edwards-ish chopping and stuttering of the vocal, is sure to bring a nostalgic smile to many an old raver's face – but don't sleep on Play On either, which harks back all the way to the Easy Street days. Take a glass… put some class in it. What have you got?
Or perhaps I shoudld say, wot do u call it? Tee hee.
Out: This week
