It's a while since we last heard from Waterford-based producer Jay Ru (real name Jay Roche). In fact, according to our records this collaborative outing with Stephen Richards is his first single since 2014. In its original form, "Vibrations & Temptations" is something of a slow burning delight: a head-nodding deep nu-disco outing full of Loleatta Holloway vocal samples, punchy beats, twinkling pianos, eyes-closed guitars and shifting synth lines that builds up in stages. It's decent, but the remix by fellow Irish producers Get Down Edits is even better. Doffing a cap towards Detroit beatdown, the pair re-imagines Roche and Richards' track as a bubbling, bass-heavy chunk of deep disco-house hypnotism rich in twinkling melodies and swirling vocal samples.
