|LABEL:Saints & Sonnets|
Huxley and Jimmy Posters introduce Baslow on their Saints & Sonnets imprint this June with ‘One Two Many Threes’ – an EP of punchy, melodic house that has the stamp of approval from Tensnake, No Artificial Colours and more.
Baslow’s current musical preferences take in the likes of Smallpeople, Aniara Recordings and Floating Points and on ‘One Two Many Threes’ these influences can be clearly heard. Robust beats provide a backbone for each track while mainly introspective tones dominate the toplines.
From the lush, overlapping textures of opener ‘Mauve’ to the aggressive yet deep roll of ‘X’, ‘One Two Many Threes’ is refreshingly unselfconscious take on modern deep house that employs a balanced mix of found sounds, samples and synth tweaking. Baslow’s love of old an new is obvious throughout the EP too, with ‘Can U Feel It’ evoking classic, emotive house while closing track ‘Swallow Catcher’ flips things up with decidedly modern techniques.
Intended as an ode to 123bpm simply because ‘that’s where it’s at’, Baslow’s ‘One Two Many Threes’ is another winner for the increasingly essential Saints & Sonnets.
Baslow’s “One Two Many Threes’ is released on Saints & Sonnets 24th June 2013.
