Timid Boy – Elia & Leo EP feat. Remixes from Per Hammar & Nacho Bolognani (Moan Recordings) 1st November
Moan Recordings marches on with more goodness, this time from French artist Damien Almira aka Timid Boy who produces two originals from and then Nacho Bolognani and Per Hammar are on the remixes who close out this stylish offering.
Elia (Original Mix) is a classy underground groove. It distils house soul and kinetic minimal drums into something that keeps you locked for nine minutes. Nacho Bolognani then offers a first remix which is edgier and laced up with sinewy synths, then a second version which is for the freaky late-night hours at the afters. The next original is Leo which is a jam to cut loose to, with echoing hits and more stylish synths. The last tune might be the best of the lot – it is a slinky and smooth dub house tune with easy chords and perfectly infectious drums.
This is sophisticated house music from a range of fine contemporary talents.
