DJ Taye - Move Out (EP - 12" Vinyl)
We welcome DJ Taye back to Hyperdub for his second EP on the label after last years popular Break It Down EP and a North American tour with Jessy Lanza. The Move Out EP is a masterclass in a distinctly soulful, dusky footwork sound with a melancholic undercurrent thats crossed with a precise eye for detail. Burnin Ya Boa ft DJ Manny opens the EP with a crisp, micro-edited arrangement of tumbling piano, dubbed out chants and a heart-tugging woodwind melody playing hide and seek with racing, ever-changing footwork drum and bass patterns.
Go 2 Sleep ft DJ Earl rolls with a narcoleptic woody percussion loop, and a vocal urging Please go to sleep, a request which is challenged with drill sounds, rave stabs, energetic footwork drums, and soft bass tones. The super minimal I Need I Want ft DJ Manny & DJ Spinn takes a house acapella and spins it into something more urgent and compulsive, the vocalists insistent, addicted pleas met with a downcast, tumbling melody. Move Out ends the EP on a brighter note, with big Detroit techno chords and a warm Moog-like solo-cum-melody. The Move Out EP is just a taster for the avalanche of new DJ Taye material forthcoming in 2017.
