With solo efforts and collaborations on Tartelet Records and its countless affiliated pockets of creativity, Wayne Snow has become a vocalist who provides a certain quality assurance when listed on a release.
Although we weren’t initially familiar with French producer and DJ Neue Grafik, Wayne Snow’s presence beckoned us in and, sure enough, it was just as good as expected. The track in question, ‘Witches’, is accompanied by four other solo efforts on Neue Grafik’s Ukiyo EP for WOLF Music, and is not the first time the two have collaborated. Neue Grafik also featured in the production credits on Wayne Snow’s debut album, alongside Max Graef and Nu Guinea, and the similarities are striking. A dusty house jam at it’s core, minor piano chords and skitting percussion combine with a broken beat soulfulness that also aligns with some Tenderlonious productions. A strong young cub to add to the WOLF pack.
Ukiyo EP is out 12th December – pre-order from Juno.
