Carlo Lio’s Rawthentic imprint present 6 originals on this Various Artists EP, each of which has its own unique flavour.
The standout for me is Kareem Cali’s Kick Back – a dark grooving track that sounds like it was written with a low ceilinged warehouse in mind. Its subtle groove has you bobbing without even realizing it. I’ll be playing an after hours event this NYE and can’t wait to inflict this one on the dance floor.
Also notable is Josh Butler’s Shakedown with its simple but effective syncopation and snappy vocal sample.
