Moody R&B crossed with knackered house? Count us in.
Culled from the forthcoming Octo Octa 2×12″ Between Two Selves, ‘Please Don’t Leave’ quickly shows Michael Bouldry-Morrison’s willingness to strip his sound back to the bare bones. The track is almost like a sunnier counterpart to Andy Stott’s warped house with its filtered thudding kicks and murky vocal snippets, but as soon as those synths begin to chime in there’s no doubt you’re in 100% Silk territory.
‘Please Don’t Leave’ is the second track we’ve had teased from Between Two Selves, which is proving so far to show just as much appreciation for the woozy R&B championed by Tri-Angle et al as it is the usual lo-fi house tropes 100% Silk have made their signature, and that’s no bad thing at all.
Between Two Selves will be released on May 28 via 100% Silk.
