Urban Habitat Recordings is the brand new label of acclaimed Jungle and breaks producer, Missing, set up as a platform to showcase innovative new sounds that transcend all aspects of the dance music spectrum. 'Off My Mind EP' oozes cool and comes loaded with 4 diverse forward thinking cuts for the floor, each with it's own very unique flavour. The EP title track features the much in demand UK vocal talents of Jamie George, who delivers an intense spoken word over a captivating Deep House piano lead groove, immersed in a bubble bath of melancholy. 'Time 4 House' is a dynamic four-to-the-floor bass driven power jam, armed with moody bass licks, punchy 90's style beats, teased with cut up vocal samples and tension filled breaks. Flipping the script, 'Bun & Cheese' is 5 glorious minutes of experimental Dub and Jungle influenced House with it's rolling bass, airy synth washed and sublime beat science. Finishing off the package with bang, 'Karma' features the unmistakeable sound of Heidi Vogel, who delivers a Soulful power-vox over a huge slab of Electro-tinged heaven!
"The 'Off My Mind EP' on Urban Habitat Recordings showcases a diverse range of 4/4 flavours which reflects where I am at as an artist. The unifier for me is a that each track is built, mix and mastered to stand the test of time. I want people to pick up my releases not knowing exactly what style it will be, but confident it will always be of consistently high quality" - Missing
