Frenetic and fun D&B from Soul Deep's fresh newcomers Humanature and J Logic, first track "Get Ya Down" revels in the sun-drenched sound of Brazil. Large and overflowing with jazzy breaks, this EP is exactly what's needed for a mid-week chill. Not to say this isn't prime dancefloor material - if you're looking for soulful, high-energy tunes made to get folks moving, you've come to the right place. With moments of pensiveness snatched in-between big, rolling waves of liquid sunshine, there's no way you could have a bad time listening to this. It's an instant mood lifter.
As soothing as it is dancefloor-perfect, "Don't Take it Away" is the first tune to grace this beauty of an EP, given up by Portuguese producer HumaNature. Rolling out an uplifting vibe, he sets the stage for his duet with Silence Groove "Just A Thought" which snips out hip-hop samples and jazz piano for a patchwork of inspiring influences. Partnering with Kalum for this track "Soul Revival" there's a retro liquid sound at work here, bringing back memories of d&b summers past. Finally a crisp stepper pushes on with help from Leeds-based maestro Colossus, "Nothing" swirls and spins with fizzing atmospherics and gorgeous vocal sampling adding some welcome wide-open atmosphere to proceedings. Excellent pairings from an exciting upcoming talent.
