Crosstown Rebels has remained a potent source of inspiration for many years now and this latest release from respected artists Dubfire feat. Carl Craig fits the bill nicely. Lotus, also has the pleasure of Kate Elsworth’s breathy vocal delivery which adds fire to the production that is in itself already smouldering, tempting you into an alternative reality. A fine piece of music with an array of subtle keys punctuating the heady rhythms and shuffling percussive motifs producing richly rewarding, beautifully atmospheric sounds. A Dub version follows, then it’s down to Tibi Dabo who provides a lusciously deep rendition which equally tugs at your emotions, while sequencing a slice of pure instrumental magic on the outro.
Release: February 14
