Amanda Brown has a keen eye to spot new talent, and the arrival of Oakland-based Bobby Browser (real name Andre Ferreira) on 100% Silk is a great example. While he's operated for a while under a number of pseudonyms, he's yet to really make his mark. Just Browsing should change all that. In typical 100% Silk fashion, the EP's four tracks join the dots between touchy-feely, retro-futurist house, acid and slick, mid '80s synth-boogie. Throughout, the production is blissfully glassy-eyed and authentically vintage. The results are superb, with the chiming, sunshine-bright "Always Many" and similarly gorgeous "Smooth Cruise" standing out.
Andre Ferreira aka Bobby Browser has already released a 12" for 100% Silk - the aptly named Just Browsing EP - and it was only natural that his comeback would be entitled Still Browsing, a perfectly suited follow-up to his smooth and enticing brand of deep house. "As Far As I Know" reminds us of Glenn Underground at his best, bringing together funky basslines and jazzy vibes to a beautiful house palate, whilst "Airplane Mode" is dubbier, crunchier and altogether bouncier. "Theme From Tony's Party" brings back the jazz flex, mixing up soothing flute solos with a wonderfully executed percussion arrangement, but "Baby Dre" is the one, where slo-mo beats meet hazy horns and deep summer vibes - a real seducer, much like the rest of the EP.
