'11th Hour' opens the EP with a beautifully carved intro of muted, sensual synths and a blunted percussion beat that immediately picks out a swinging, London-centric rhythm. As the distant yearn of afterhours city lights emerges, the intro melts into a fluid-yet-funky roller, a languid longing for the urban twilight hour. 'Sultry Steel' flirts with UK Garage foundations, as the drums skip along with knowing skill and a slinky vocal sample punctuates the fuzzy atmosphere. As the track name suggests, its the steel drum melody that gives the beat its memorable dance floor significance.
Erring on the subtler side of late night bass, dirtybird has uncovered a veritable gem here. Enjoy!
