  • Description Following the introspective opus from Hit & Miss, Indigo Raw saunters off to another dark corner of the dance floor to discover what lurks there. What they find is a freaky collection of 4/4 jams at different stages of mutation.

    The heavy, shuffling beats of Paul Loraine and Lee Websters Soul Slap are a reclined take on gritty, urban house. Raw, unhurried drums take a rhythmic lead while looming urban melodies contrast with soaring pads to remind you that this is a house track, just. Occupying the space between two different approaches to electronic music, the track finds its own distinct turf.

    BLM toughens the track up, with skippy drums and brittle percussive stabs. Through this tight framework fathoms deep chords entwine themselves, ebbing at the vocal calls to create a hazy piece of dance floor action.

    Soulade go for an old school, 8bit approach. In contrast to the restraint shown throughout the rest of the package this is a jacking hybrid of acid and New York house. Gargling, dripping and swirling but with plenty of funk, the track asks more questions than it answers.

    Working space into the track, Greg Sawyer delivers more of a soul caress with subtle reverb and a gentle swing. Turning the mood outwards he slowly builds into the track, adding sprinkles of
    percussion and stabs of bass as sunny moments unfold.

    Wrapping things up in an open ended style, the Soul Slap EP will leave listeners craving more of the Barcelona label.
