The Way EP

  • Artists James Welsh
  • Release Date 2012-11-26
  • Labels Join The Dots
  • Catalog DOT013
  • Description Unlucky for some but not it seems you or us, DOT013 comes comprised of a hat trick of deep and sultry, some would say R'n'B flavoured slow jams, made for those sexier evenings when you feel the urge to want to nod your head, wine your body and give those hips something of a work out as opposed to just pointing haphazardly to the sky whilst hopping between legs and occasionally pulling your best "ooooh listen to that bass line" face. Though those evenings clearly have their place as well.

    James Welsh has, it must be said, lived quite the life already, from touring with post-punk outfit The Rise, riding BMX in Texas or remixing everyone from Britney Spears to Depeche Mode or DJ-ing around the world as part of Ocelot, a key player in that whole blog house scene from a few years back. Basically the boy has been there and done it, he didn't even buy the t-shirt, he designed it and then sold it back to you and your folks for a massive profit.
    We said it was R'n'B flavoured and R'n'B flavoured it is. The Way sounds like James got locked in a basement with Baby Face, Brandy, Monica, Jodeci and Montell Jordan and was forced at gun point to make a track that could be played in those sexy nightclubs that all the ghetto stars go to, where they spray Cristal over each other then have a fight and post a twitter picture of their war wounds. Fighting and champagne spraying is optional though sexy dutty-wine dancing is not.  

    If we had to classify one of these tracks as 'the peak time one' then Walk would be it, now our mum always told us to walk before we run and we don't like classifying things too much so let's just say that if you want to make loads of people jack, but in more of a sexy way as opposed to that frantic jerking shenanigans they used to do back in the early nineties that was recorded on beta-max then this is the track to employ. It's low-slung and sultry, jacking house music, which means ladies like it too.

    Hold should perhaps be named Hold Tight, as in "you'd better strap yourself in and hold on mate". But it isn't. If you like your music slowed down with enough low end to dislodge your undercarriage then this is the track for you. It's got some spoken word vocal on it and some chanting that crops up from time to time but the rest just kick-drum and bass, loads of loverly, slow, elongated bass. It sounds more like you are in the jungle than in a night club, so more Greystoke than Grey Goose.
