In its original form, "Don't Go" is something of a curiosity; a midtempo deep house track masquerading as an atmospheric chunk of late night pop. Jesse Lee Davis's vocal is strong, and perfectly compliments the shuffling, tech-tinged backing from 11 Inch. There are three remixes, all of which take the track further towards straight-up dancefloor territory. There's a slither of warm deep house from Wave Crushers, a woozy and a slightly cosmic slo-mo house version from Deepwerk and Ralf-E. Best of all, though, is Harry T James' version, which turns the track into an eccentric but beautifully produced chunk of low-key soulful pop.
In a collision of creative minds, Art Department have seemingly curated this release which sees Martina Topley Bird covering The XX's "Crystalised" with help from past collaborator Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees fame, as well as some instrumental input from Warpaint. The end result is a raw fusion of loose drums and prominent bass heavy with groove and rich in chemistry between the twin vocals, not to mention pleasantly free from sheen. There's also a sizable wedge of remixes from Frankie Knuckles as Director's Cut, Agoria and Deniz Kurtel, who all fashion the original into varying degrees of safe and sturdy house music.
