James Silk - Night Girls EP/Paid My Dues EP
First up is the Night Girls EP on Family Matters, a four-tracker featuring All Night, Automatic Sistematic, Love You Right and Oh Girl. As is Mr Silk's wont, contemporary-sounding deep house infused with soul and a strong sense of house music history is the general order of the day: the standout cut for me is All Night, which works the vocal from Pulse's The Lover That You Are over cavernous beats.
The Paid My Dues EP, meanwhile, comes on Form-and Function and features three more original Silk trax, with big squelchy basslines featuring prominently and the atmospheric 1.21 Gigawatts the pick for me.
Two strong EPs that merely serve to confirm James Silk as one of the hottest young producers around.
Out: This week
