Following a fruitful year with releases on the likes of Cocoon, Ovum Recordings, Bedrock, Poker Flat and Planet E, Glasgow’s Vince Watson kick-starts 2015 with a debut release on Osunlade’s Yoruba Records imprint. For those unfamiliar with Watson he has been producing electronic music for 20 years now.
The Glaswegian opens the release with ‘A Moment With Lonnie’, an ambient number that tenderly commences courtesy of twinkling notes and spectral atmospherics. ‘Eminesense’ then rolls into play
with a funky analog bassline that is later accompanied by a poignant piano riff whilst serene percussion augments a Balearic edge to the equation.
Bongo drums and shuffling hats quickly establish a tribal vibe in penultimate cut ‘Calypso’, while concluding the release is ‘Under The Skin’, which ebbs in gently with the use of sultry strings and a soothing piano riff.
The EP is out now on vinyl, with a digital release on 9 March.
