Boomkat Product Review:
Sterling Sound Signature debut 12" from 22 year old Detroiter, Jay Daniel. Ruff, rugged, and driving, the 'Scorpio EP' yields four tracks steeped in classic 313 house styles, and blessed with an irrepressible vitality bound to work marvels on the 'floor. A-side 'No Love Lost' eases in with a tight blend of Omar-S like keys and bustling machine groove programmed with the itchy swing of Howard Thomas or Kyle Hall, and 'Brainz' knuckles down to a proper buck session a la Anthony Shakir, all noisy, tracky drums with nary a care for melody. B-side is a proper disco heater, 'I Have No Name', spilling stellar arpeggios over thumping kick/bassline and sophisticated, progressive chords, before our favourite, 'Bubble Cougar' really cuts loose with martial snare rolls and frankly lewd bassline to get you in the mood. Recommended!
