James Silk & Dharkfunkh – Nobody

July 25, 2014 in Singles

James Silk & Dharkfunkh Nobody Erase RecordsThe last of our ‘usual suspects’ tonight is James Silk, though it’s fair to say he’s been a bit less usual of late – in fact, was just starting to wonder what had happened to the lad when this landed in the inbox! Here, then, Mr Silk teams up with dharkfunkh, AKA Brummie producer Steve Ricketts, for a two-tracker on Wasabi’s Erase Records.

Nobody is a struttin’, deep-ish but peaktime-friendly houser, with a wicked descending b-line, diva-y “remember this” vox and organ sounds that suggest Mr Ricketts may have been no stranger to his hometown’s bassline house scene back in the day. S’cool, but it’s actually the flipside Hold On that takes top honours for yours truly, as a very famous Lisa Stansfield vocal rides crisp drums, handclaps and some proper sleazy, ass-shakin’ bass squelch.
