J69 – Evil Ep (SE016) - Released January 14th
J69 teams up with Soukouch Ethnik a label I was unfamiliar with until recently to release his Evil EP…the clues in the title!
The EP consists of two original tracks from the man himself aswell as a remix from Laney which helps to switch up the style. The irregular bass patterns after a quite frankly evil build up does exactly what it says on the tin for the opening track funnily enough entitled evil.
“You” on the other hand has such a simple vocal sample, but when paired with some clever key work & that devilish wind before the drop, it turns it into something completely different helping to continue the theme thats set throughout the whole EP.
Im always a bit cautious of remixes that are based around such a simple vocal sample but Laney took this in the right direction by fiddling with the sample and switching up the style with a much more electronic feel compared to the raw bass featured in the opening tracks.
Overall a very solid EP from the ever J69 improving who we have been following since the blog opened!
