Waifs & Strays – Fire In Me EP

May 8, 2016 in Singles

Waifs & Strays Fire In Me EP LovecrimesThe very first release on a brand new label here: say hello, everyone, to Lovecrimes, which has just been set up by Amos Nelson (better known as Waifs & Strays) and partner-in-crime ITchy Rich.

Nelson himself is at the controls for the label’s debut offering, serving up two original cuts. Fire In Me itself is a now-sounding bassy houser with a full female vocal that’s a bit poppy but steers just the right side of the line, while C’mon ploughs a similar musical furrow but with bigger bass and, by way of vocal, just a man’s voice saying “c’mon” over and over. Remix-wise, Death On The Balcony’s rub of the title track downpitches the vocal in places and has more of a trippy, 4am kinda feel overall, but the pick for me is the Instradub Mix, which ditches the vocal entirely and lets that menacing b-line come to the fore.

Out: 6 May

About: You can find Lovecrimes… er, no, you can’t actually. Or I can’t, so here’s Waifs & Strays on Soundcloud instead.
