[Review] Dillistone – Furnace EP
Wednesday afternoon’s can always seem very dull, it’s the middle of the week, 2 days before the weekend and your mind is slowly turning off – well mine is anyways, so just as I was about to head to BBC Radio 1 and listen to Pete Tong’s latest show from last Friday for some new music, I then got an email with a link to Dillistone’s new EP titled ‘Furnace’ and can honestly say it was refreshing to hear and definitely woke me up!
Dillistone delivers incredible high quality production across all three tracks, my favourite being “Midas Feat. LILI N”, the choice of sounds mixed with LILI N’s soft chilled vocal with a nice little sample chop up is exactly what I was looking for this Wednesday afternoon!
GAWVI – Late Nights
GAWVI, a name that is instantly recognisable to many within the world of hip-hop, marks a change in his musical career with the release of a dance-infused cut, ‘Late Nights’ – out now via Reach Records.
Under the tutelage of Rodney Jerkins and Pharrell, GAWVI rose to prominence working on the Grammy nominated hip-hop album, ‘Anomaly’ by Lecrae, as well as on Andy Mineo’s Billboard 200 album, Uncomfortable. Having honed his craft over the past 5 years, receiving praise from Esquire to MTV, and support on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, GAWVI is now taking a defiant leap into a career as a solo dance artist with ‘Late Nights’.
Beginning with a distinctly hip-hop quality, the introduction soon materialises into a 2-step chord driven build-up, before dropping into a fast-paced and uplifting chorus. Structurally running parallel to GAWVI’s journey as a producer – transitioning from hip-hop to dance – he employs a thumping kick and a jazz-flute top line to create this summer’s smash hit.
The first single from GAWVI’s forthcoming Lost in Hue EP, and a taster of things to come, ‘Late Nights’ will both surprise and excite GAWVI’s already loyal and far-reaching fan base.
Lost In Hue is available on July 29 via Reach Records, and is the first of two EP’s to be released from GAWVI this sumer.
