4 Something Better (Ny*ak)

OUT NOW IN THE SHOP

Jamie Logun has been cutting his teeth in some of the best clubs the North has to offer including the Electric Chair, Southport Weekender and Cutloose listening to DJs like Moodyman, Brennan Green and Theo Parrish.

Those influences have been consolidated into his debut release for Paper Recordings. He has taken a sample and built Something Better into a hypnotic slice of deep soulful disco. It ebbs, flows and builds to the break where it drops before going heads down again. Slo-mo disco indeed!

The dub fills things out with the same elements but more driving distorted drums and Rhodes. An analogue bass is introduced after the break that takes the last section in to subby waters.

Flash Atkins goes in a more minimal tech-house direction but upping the BPMs slightly. With a swinging sub and morphing lead, the mix filters in and out. The keys are introduced and build to strings and arpeggiatored pads before finally heading back down in to 5am deep house territory

Finally Ny*ak uses the sample to go more leftfield with a broken house groove to produce a hypnotic remix with soul bursting out at the seams.

Mr Scruff – The original version of the jamie l is great, lovely heads down late night slo-mo goodness, tons of plays from me!
