Super lush and warm vibes on this. I'd only really heard a few mixes by Lay-Far and hearing this EP has really sparked an intense interest in Lay-Far and his productions. For lovers of Moodymann, Andres, MCDE or anyone making the highest level of lush, warm grooves, laden with a smorgasbord of soulful vocal, percussive and rhythmic samples. The production of this track really shines and ensures that every layer of this dense yet playful groove are given ample room to do their thang. However despite all the technical prowess, the song also progresses, the darker, more eerie feeling of the first half smoothly disperses as the mood brightens, conjuring instant thoughts of hot sand and cool breezes (Bossa Nova heads will know what I'm talking about).
Make sure to also check out the other tracks on this EP as its not just house you can expect from Lay-Far going into the future, there's spacey nu-disco and hip-hop as well on this EP, each tackled with the same level of enthusiasm.
