It's been four years since Lonelady's debut album dropped on Warp Records, but now this fresh single suggests renewed activity from the Manchester-based post-punk and synth-pop influenced artist. The original of "Groove It Out" is a taut funk workout rich in its production from hooky bass to '80s chimes to acoustic strums, capturing a little of The Cure and a little of Prince amongst many other well-realised reference points. Her own "Michigan Dub" of the track gets into a more focused club mentality that pivots around a sturdy bassline and stiff drums, before Ekoplekz delivers the kind of audacious dub reworking that would make Adrian Sherwood shiver in his delays.
