Review: Primarily known for his work in artist management and press, it is an absolute pleasure to see Jack Selecta unveil his brand new EP with Downplay, one of the most consistent imprints within the UKG scene as a whole. The project is a serious showcase of Jack's exceptional production skillset, kicking off with the colourful melodic switches and hard hitting bass stabs of 'Ends', followed by 'Original Pirates', a warbling 2-steppy scorcher, packed with nostalgic energy and precise vocal slicing. Finally, 'Visions' rounds us off with some really cool original ideas, smashing together pulsating squarewaves over wind-inspiring rhythmic designs. It's a fantastic body of work!
Review: Now this is a release we have been seriously looking forward to, as Downplay introduce Jack Selecta to their roster, an artist most actively known for his managerial and written involvement with the UKG scene. However, this EP shows he's capable of swinging with the best of them as we kick off with the super unique bass tones and vocal overlays of 'Dust Off'. Next, more of those juicy bass stabs for all, this time combined with constantly expanding bass synthesizers and crunchy drum maneuvers. We are then treated to a wicked remix from MKII of 'Dust Off', putting the finishing touches on a fantastic debut.
