Montreal's Seapoint is back with long time associates B.YRSELF Division for two sizzling future-house gems. "Vapour Hymns" is drenched in crystalline synth chords and features perky 90s bass organ melodies and high-street-house vocals. The sour to the former's sweet, "Successors" is hard-hitting acidic-techno banger that manages to incorporate R&B vocal samples, sawn- off electro hacks and space-jazz synths, and shimmies rather than falls on its face. Elsewhere cool remixes by TSVI and Drums Of Death are usurped by the sheer magnitude of the Yello meets DJ Hell in a dark alley jam by Grandivaa.
Seapoint is a shady producer from Montreal, who has seen his profile rise quite considerably over the last 12 months. Not one for holding back on his love of all things oceanic, he now drops his Nautical Day EP which should see him ahem, reel in even more attention with his cut up, retro sound. The title track sees stop-start beats carry a looped 80s/90s R&B sample. "Row Land" follows a similar approach but with extra synth stabs and more up front club vibes. "Cyanotype Cities" features a vintage New York house sound, with 4/4 beats, a ravey organ, killer snare rolls and a wailing diva sample. "Shadow Encoder" is all broken hip-hop beats and sci-fi R&B keyboards. The last track "Unknown Ruins", mines the 90s soul vibes even more, sounding rather like Boys II Men stuck in a K hole.
