Glenn Kelly Modernity EP

Cat No: WOT011
Artist: Glenn Kelly
Title: Modernity EP
Label: WotNot
Release Date: 24th June 2013

Jeeks’ boogie-infused underground smash ‘Arcade EP’ turned a lot of heads in 2011. The infectious beats and delicious bass lines over meticulously crafted samples left people tipping the young producer for big success.

Two years later and, aside from the ‘Shoulder Pads’ mixes that have had fans sashaying across their living room floors, very little has been heard from Glenn Kelly until his disco-tinged deep house track ‘Parma’ appeared on WotNot’s Dancefloor Sweets compilation in April. The track displayed not so much a shift in focus as a new maturity, which is again displayed on Modernity.

While the sound is now more deep house than synth funk, all the elements are still there, albeit distilled down to simple perfection. The sound palette retains the retro pads, syncopated synth bass, disco leads and hand claps, but the mood has flipped from youthful sass to a cultured slow burn.

This is evident on opening track ‘Return’ where the modulated funk wah chord appears once in the whole track, while warm syncopated stabs overlap with electro space percussion and uplifting pads. ‘Plainview’ is driven by fragments of retro bass and drum-machine hand-claps with floating electronics providing a reflective, late-night edge. Closing track ‘Mursi’ is the ultimate lesson in musical patience, with pattering and pulsing synths slowly building over two and a half minutes to the beautifully shaped Chaka-Khan-esque synth hook.

All in all, this EP is Summer nights and nostalgia in a bottle. Keep it to hand at all times in the coming months, share a sip every now and again with your friends and lovers, and Glenn will make sure that 2013 is a year to remember.
