About this item

Following on from their first outing into the world of the long player (Medlar's wicked debut 'Sleep'), WOLF Music return to their bread and butter, welcoming James Welsh back for EP 21. Kicking the EP off in soulful style is "Born & Raised", which employs shuffling hats and minor chord keys as the setting for the raw and emotional vocal sample. Deep and groovy, this is a head nodder for sho'. Wolf associate Frits Wentink takes things to ocean floor depth on his remix, filtering a vocal sample to create a swooning rhythm and adding some techy metallic keys for a post peak slow burner. On the flip the wonderfully named "Fuzzy Dunlop" is a super slow and stoned house builder which breaks into the smoothest of electro funk melodies for a few bars in the middle before locking back into that hypnotic groove. The standout track for me "Tinker's Rucksack", which deploys a little bit of Marvin with great aplomb. Add to the choice vocal nugget some mournful keys and a Detroitian lead line and you've got a winner in my book.
