- Warn-U by Ayshay

Now here we have something a little different from a label to date renowned for tripped-out beats, languid rhythms shifting sands of texture & spectral vocals. With Ayshay, the vocals take the baton and run with it, leaving all but this lass's layered and blended tones suspended amorphously in varying degrees of pitch. Some of the deeper manipulated voice samples on here are verging on throat singing, deep and druid-like whilst the more ethereal, high female vocal parts sound almost angelic & choral in their airiness. Warn-U is a revelation because it takes no easy route but sounds like sublimely structured & strangely spiritual music. I receive a similar emotional impact from Fatima Al Qadiri's meditative floating sound-world to that which I get from other female groundbreakers such as Grouper, Leila, Bjork & Laurel Halo. The first three tracks are lush, stripped-back and mesmerising if not a little unnerving!! The remix at the end is supposedly a medley of the whole EP and works a bloody treat as Los Angeles based producer Nguzunguzu adds simple tribal patterns and some restrained warm exotica to proceedings like a fantastical backdrop to a wild dream, even working up a cheeky D'n'B lather at one point which still doesn't remotely detract from the wonderful tapestry of vocal tones.
