This sounds great from the offset with a big stomping kick and sweeping hi-hats, the rhythm is itchy and some big UK funky marching snares kick in along with a gnarly little riff and a fat bassline (no surprises there) then some big bleepy off kilter melody arrives in the mix and we have a powerful DJ tool that's a real future-step winner. 'Phat Si' on the B-side' takes a slightly more traditional garage route with soulful vocals and a dreamy almost melancholic feel with a slow and slinky groove working through the offbeat rhythm. A nice little number but the A-side is the stealer for me. An absolute cracker.
9/10 Andrew Customer review, 3rd September 2014
Proper future classic for me, Up In My Head is deceptively light on first listen, but as you get further into the track its deepness and quality hooks you in. Crisp production, the use of the repeated title over the bass and beats, its a real earworm. One that you'll welcome rather than treat as an unwelcome houseguest not getting the hint that its really time to bugger off.
Cooly G is one talented producer, I pick up her stuff on sight, she really is on the cutting edge of British dance music, blending funky, dubstep, deep house as well as twisted r'n'b in a pretty consistent fashion.
