Soul Intent - Late Night Sleaze EP
Released 11th December 2015
"1,2,3,4" is a collaboration with old skool legend DJ Tango (Formation, Moving Shadow). Having made contact with Tango (just to say hello), a conversation about working together resulted in Tango heading up to Nottingham for a studio session. "1,2,3,4" is the end result, a jazzy roller with a massive double bass bassline plus the usual Soul Intent flavors. This has been firmly stuck in the DJ sets of Fabio and LTJ Bukem respectively.
"Go Hustle" highlights (yet again) Soul Intents love for that classic Bristol sound. A Full Cycle stepper with funk licks and vocal samples from old detective shows continue the retro feel. We can't claim it's 'future' just good-old-fashioned drum and bass.
"Late Night Sleaze" is the title track, and a personal favourite of Soul Intent. This dirty roller oozes soul and funk. Indeed, dirty funk as only Soul Intent can deliver.
"Nearly There" is something a little different. Written after a session listening to movie soundtracks, Nearly There features piano assistance from long time friend and former Dataset co-member Chris Gittins. We think it's fair to say this track demonstrates Soul Intents skills aren't just limited to producing dancefloor music but shows his ability to tap into a very emotive and cinematic palette.
