London soul band Ephemerals made something of a splash with their debut album, Nothing Is Easy. "You Made Us Change" is taken from that superb set, and sees them laying down an end-of-night torch song full of heartfelt lyrics, evocative vocals, melancholic strings and heavy horns. The accompanying remixes do a great job in dragging the original kicking and screaming towards the dancefloor. NTSFW lay down a bouncy, UK-funky influenced house version, while the Antenna Happy Remix and Dub both sound like picturesque fusions of slow house and Balearic nu-disco. Finally, AOTA drops a chiming, sub-heavy version that sits somewhere between skittish two-step, dubstep and experimental D&B.
Sampha comes through correct with his fifth appearance for Young Turks, the ever-entertaining London imprint which has brought to you names like SBTRKT and The xx. We're always interested to see what the label has in store for us, and this EP from Sampha has certainly left us salivating. "Too Much" is a modern soul cut, representative of London itself and its love for those seductive moments. "Happens" is a similarly sparse and piano-led song that spews emotion and charm at all angles - big things beckon for this guy, we just know it...
