I don’t know about you but after recent events I’m very wary about people called Jimmy. No wonder this Jimmy (actually his name is Jamy) has chosen to drop a few consonants. If I were Robin Colvill, I’d be keeping my mouth firmly zipped for awhile*.
Anyway the press release for this contains the ‘words’ “sensuadelic”, “transcen-dance”, “super psych bliss-bloops”. In plain English this is drifty, highly danceable, squiggly house with a bit of a prog feel to the wibbly synths. There are four tunes altogether giving a hazy, lazy outrageously drug addled feel to the proceedings. I imagine dancing, topless, in a West Coast nightclub, driving, top down to a beach, playing this loud while dancing on the dunes, then dying in a tragic yachting accident. “He was a hedonist!”, they’d say at my funeral, “we knew he would never reach 40”.
Anyway track one is bleep centric with some gorgeous warm synth plates underneath the jittery squiggles, track three breezes along on with some real acidy squiggles, bass tones and odd crashing cymbal, track four is warm melodic house like early Warp stuff which alters half way through with a nagging hook - certainly the most playful and memorable track here and a very impressive way of ending a record that at times is difficult to penetrate. As with all the 100% Silk material its top quality stuff, deep within the house/acid side of what they do but filled with just enough longing between the upbeat spiritual take on hi-octane house.*First person to write in with what on earth Clint is banging on about here and we’ll send you something.
