Slavaki – Change Your Mind EP

November 6, 2014 in Singles

Slavaki Change Your Mind Elusive RecordsWe keep things seriously deep but in just slightly housier fashion now with this three-tracker from London’s Elusive Records.

Change Your Mind itself is an atmospheric, late-night-but-not-sleeping-yet kinda cut, all twitchy minimal beats, sub-aquatic FX and whispered fem vox, the latter coming courtesy of Ivy Vandervorst. Jazzy Monday surprises by not being particularly jazzy, instead placing analogue synth noodlings atop more twitchy, minimal-leaning beats, while finally Escape For The Day is a little more leftfield-leaning, topping more of those water-y FX and sparse beats with some guy talking about teaching religion in schools, or some such.

“A playful mixture of warm enigmatic sounds for your mind, body and soul” is how the hype sheet touts this one, and yeah, I’d say that’s about right. But it’s the title track that’s the clear stand-out to these ears.

Out: This week, on Bandcamp; there are also 200 limited edition white vinyl pressings.

About: You can find Elusive Records on Soundcloud or at their own website.

**UPDATE 7/11: No sooner do I get a review of this posted, than I receive another promo of the same release saying it’s not out till 15 December. Not sure which is correct so if you look for this and can’t find it, try again in five weeks’ time!
