The multi-talented James Welsh rocks up to Hypercolour with this heavyweight four track EP. As one half of Ocelot Mthrfckers (signed to Wall Of Sound at the tender age of 17) and engineer for the last Reverend & The Makers long player, Welsh has been spreading his musical wings further with recent releases on Join The Dots, Wolf Music, Futureboogie and Hypercolour’s own Losing Suki offshoot.
‘Sky’ is legit late night house action, with somber pianos and dubbed out vocals, whilst ‘Sent’ presents another choice vocal over a tight and skippy production. ‘Steak’ ramps up the energy levels, choppy vox and relentless rides, real peak time tackle here, and wrapping up the package is another vocal cut ‘Strong’, a crunchy and distorted house cut, Welsh getting busy on the analogue keys whilst the excellent vocal floats over the solid production.
A varied and consistent from James Welsh on the ‘S’ EP, see what we did there?
