Cinthie launched the Collective Cuts imprint 2019 with a VA from KETTAMA, Asquith, 9th House and S3A and has since gone on to release a follow up EP from the latter and a split EP from Anaxander and Azuni. As the name would suggest the label was built as a platform for Cinthie to showcase the music of her peers.
Here we see this continue with a four track package welcoming back Asquith while introducing three new acts to the roster. Up first is Manuold with his 'Classic Paradise' cut, a disco-tinged house track employing soaring diva style vocals, bright keys, choppy bass hits and sweeping pad sequences throughout. Lobster Theremin's Asquith then takes thing in a rave driven direction with bumpy breaks, heavy doses of sub bass and a hazy, resonant atmospheric pad.
UC Beatz steps up next with 'Picnic On A Roof', laying down a smooth deep house feel via warbling Rhodes, cinematic strings, wandering jazz tinged bass and organic drums before Yard One round out the release with 'Disjoint', fusing a dynamic drum workout with gritty bass hits, bright synth sequence and emotive atmospherics.
