The release kicks off with 'Evans Above' on the 'A' side: A lush mid tempo groove of organic drums and percussion builds and starts to drive with a live double bass to a crescendo which sees a breakdown of big and dramatic uplifting strings. The groove settles and builds further to a sparse but heartfelt double bass solo which plucks on the heart strings as much as those of the instrument before revisiting the string theme. Think sunsets, beaches and warmth!
The Evans Above 'Club Dub' opens the flip side and takes the tempo and energy up to later night territory whilst retaining the organic, warm and uplifting elements!
Next up is a re-visit to JCub's 'Mestizo' which featured on the Nicetrax 005 "Soulfuric Acid EP" for which Mule and Ostgut Ton artist Tony Lionni takes the controls. A deep, pad driven backdrop of warm jazzy chords and swinging percussion is interwoven with beautiful improvised trumpet lines played by Malcom Strachen (Haggis Horns, Corrine Bailey Ray, Mark Ronson and more!) which give way to analogue synth lines before rejoining to build the heat. Another fantastic end of summer piece of dance floor action!
