Last May, London-based producer E. Myers released ‘Love/Hate’, his third White Label pursuit. Flying under the radar for a while, this last year has seen him come out of the shadows with mixes for Ben UFO’s Rinse FM show and Honey Soundsystem’s HNYPOT series. The latter divulged in the blurb of the mix that Myers’ ‘Hate’ had become somewhat of an anthem for them, getting airplay in their mixes and sets.
So it’s music to our ears that Josh Cheon – part of Honey Soundsystem and label chief at Dark Entries, purveyors of underground reissues and synth-driven sounds – has announced that they will be reissuing E. Myers EP with an extra appendix.
Here we premiere new addition ‘Hate (Version)’ which brings a deeper brooding quality than its former, moving into New Beat realms. The weighty kick and tittering hats support layers of commanding synth stabs, and although moving along at a steadier pace than the original, it still retains a certain gravity and mystique.
Love/Hate is released on 5 December. Order the vinyl over at Dark Entries.
