Los Angeles label Sol Selectas Records goes about its business nicely here with another new EP, this time from Uone & Western, who serve up two great originals while remixes from Jonas Saalbach and Dreams both help to complete a vital package. The original artists hail from Sydney in Australia and you can tell that by the warmth of their sound.
Up first is 'Gold Sachs River', which is both beautiful but menacing, with twinkling melodies and skyward synths offset by rasping, down low synths. It’s a nice mix and sets a great deep tone to start with. 'Tribal Paradise 'then drops the tempo and conjures up some kinky basslines and nice-but-weird vocals. Although it is spaced out and horizontal, the overall feel of the track sucks you in to its off-kilter grooves.
'Gold Sachs River' then gets remixed by Jonas Saalbach into something even more soft and tender, undulating and gorgeous. Last of all, the Dreams remix of Tribal Paradise is slow and purposeful, with corrugated bas and tin pot percussion all making for a nice loose and deep roller. Overall, a fine EP.
