Artists & Title: Ezra Osborn – Savage Skeelo EP Label: Shadow Hide You Catalogue#: SHY110 Date:2014 Format: 12″ Vinyl Country:
” We are so happy to finally announce our first release on Shadow Hide You.
Our intention with this brand is not to please everyone, but rather those who knows. This first release is a statement of this matter. Its a statement towards those hunters out there who breathe the same music we do. Its a message to them of what to expect from us in the future. You know, for them this beauty is no news.
The infameous edit of “Savage Skeelo” was first released on a Canadian Various Artists record, back in 2006. It got broad recognition among the highest echelons of djing Even the record is “rare” and expensive today, we thought Ezra deserved more attention for his effort. The popularity for it until recent has shown that this gem is timeless, and we thought it deserves a full release. To complete the package we have put the happy and slightly fucked track: “Listen to the Bassline” on the b side. This is a funky repetitive house track which has been a personal secret weapon for years. he produced it together with local homie “Giano”.
Tracklist: A. Overcome B. Lady Science (NYC Sunrise)
Credits: Trelik returns with a repackaged edition of one of the catalogue’s most treasured releases. “Overcome” and “Lady Science (NYC Sunrise)” need little introduction, and now come sporting the new TR11:11 matrix number. Written and produced by Thomas Melchior and Baby Ford aka Soul Capsule. These tracks came from one of the many sessions recorded at the West London Ifach Studio in 1999. On the A Side “Overcome” is stripped back and energetic, driven by rolling and shuffling garage style beats, tight bubbling bass and atmospheric synth pads. The intermittent vocal samples and the release’s signature organ set you up for the flip, “Lady Science (NYC Sunrise)”. Possibly one of house music’s most emotive pieces, the track builds slowly with the introduction of each part building a story of soulful optimism based around a sparse palette of deep synths, uplifting keys and warm analogue bass. The understated beauty of the main vocal riff never seems to grow old or tired with the track lending itself perfectly to either main room, peak-time play or after-hours sessions alike.
