A few months ago, Shall Not Fade teased Jaymie Silk's arrival at the Bristol-based imprint by chucking one of his tracks on its' fifth anniversary compilation. Now the popular West Country imprint has gone a step further a served up an entire EP from the fast-rising Montreal producer. It's an accomplished outing all told, with Silk bouncing between extra-percussive broken beat/breakbeat funk ('Knock You Down'), sub-heavy jazz-house brilliance ('Jack Johnson'), piano-sporting, soul-flecked analogue house haziness ('Illegal Love') and heart-aching electronic soul ('Unforgivable Blackness', where he sings of 'doing his best to stay alive'). The obligatory remix comes courtesy of Byron The Aquarius, who smartly re-imagines 'Jack Johnson' as a more strident slab of jazzy deep house excellence.
