New label Audio Parallax celebrates it first release this week with the Deep Soul EP from MannMadeMusic. A broody, string-laden stormer containing a cheeky little sample you may recognise from another few releases..
Iain Mann has built up a bit of a cult following on his Soundcloud over the last number of months and staggeringly, given the impeccable standard of the productions and edits he has posted up, has only taken to production this past year.
Deep Soul, has taken a sample from the jazz classic Freddie Hubbard – Little Sunflower
You all probably know this as the basis for the very special Deep Burnt by Pepe Braddock (lot’s of great, great memories of this one for us!)
And also The Love by Tribe Called Quest..
Iain has beautifully crafted his own version of the sample into a deep, lush groove, which pays homage to its influences and makes his own stamp on it. One to definitely get the hairs on the back of your neck standing.
For the remix, the AudioParallax guys have roped in the one and only Matthew Kyle. Here, Matthew does what he does best – slows it down, and sucks you into an unrelenting groove!
And to complete the package is Sounds of Old. With another inspirational string sample and a nice tribal vibe going on, this gives us 3 great songs on one EP, which we can’t wait to try out over the coming weeks.
If this is a sign of what is to come from Audio Parallax, then it looks like we will have some quality releases coming your way this year.
