- 2 slow house with the tough kick sound, bougie bass, vibraphone with japanese female vocal work along >l.a. nights< chorus hook.
>all i need< kicks off with female vocal chat on housey beats, in the middle you hear more of heavenly vocal – slow minimal filter house stylee. side b, >got to see her< presents party minimal disco style, marvin gaye-ish vocal line comes in middle with killer electric piano code. >hurt me< starts with killer funky bassline, groovy percussion & clap. theo parish esque flavour makes this track stands out when you play just before peak time on the dancefloor! simply winner.
