After a refreshingly drawn-out summer of recreation, Love & Other fires up it’s engines once more to proudly welcome the prosperous DJ S.K.T to it’s ranks – effortless in both rawness and intensity, the ‘Where You Went’ EP delivers a broad range of styles in an elegant cross-pollination of sound.
Title track ‘Where You Went’ features a soulful vocal lead, jagged percussions and pulsing subs that gracefully cut through a rich 2-step drum figure. Playing on a timeless and classic theme, S.K.T opts for a garage-gone-bass panache in this UK-tinged dancefloor weapon.
On the flip, the slow and groove-orientated ‘Hot Tainted Love’ sucks you into a jerry-rigged arrangement of rolling beats and a haunting spoken-word. Before the mid-section the female vocal shifts in intensity bringing with it a beautifully convoluted chord melody, inducing an almost dystopian state of trance - so good!
On top of an excellent string of releases in 2016 this intricately programmed EP marks the close to a very successful summer for DJ S.K.T, and a reimagined outlook for Love & Other.
