For those who may not know this about me, I am a massive Digital fan. I’d probably put him in my top 5 of producers, he’s managed to retain a style & quality in his tracks since he began up until now, whilst keeping up with the changing times. He’s also got a staggering workrate, which leads to tunes like this not getting as much recognition as they should.
This came out on a label called Octopus Recordings, which I can’t say that I know much about, but they put out two releases from Klute (as Override) & this EP, which is a solid showcase of the deep & moody type of jungle that labels like Timeless, Legend, Lucky Spin/Dee Jay & Certificate 18 were putting out, a bit less ‘euphoric’ than the stuff coming out on GLR at the time.
Out of the 3 track EP, of course I had to pick the one amen tune to write about, so here goes. It starts off with a quite stripped down intro of hats & bleeps & sweeping vocals, setting up the mood nicely for the bass to come in & the delayed amen teases. It continues to build & build by adding some tranquil pads to the mix before it inevitably drops into the arm-flailing amen edits combined with the pounding bassline. Definitely one that deserves more attention than it is getting.
