Putting paid to any attempt at a pre-Christmas diet, another sweet release drops on Banoffee Pies as they serve up Limited Series 06. Adorned with
some saucy Pink legs, this latest volume sees a predominantly Bristol based line up take us through the finest leftfield house, electro, jazz and 2 step. Gallegos’ “Save Your Love For Me” quickly engages your focus with jazzy clarinet licks, enticing vocals and a sophisticated house rhythm, while Seka fuses electro drum programs and deep house pads for the dreamy “Hanging Gardens”. Recent BP signee Jay Anderson returns for his second appeance on the imprint, taking us to the intermission with the emotive jazz chords and complex drum patterns of taut 2 stepper "Dreams". Dropping by to say hi, deep house maestro Owain K kicks off the flip in fine floor filling style, locking us into the sultry, steamy and dreamy "Touched", as immersive a groover as you're likely to find. As with many of its predecessors is EP draws to a close with a proper smokers jam, this time from Embezzlement Society, who chop up jazz piano, muted trumpet and a weird Oizo bass synth to take us around to beatdown town. Diverse and deep shizzle once again!
