Stepping outside the realms of talent hothouse Wolf + Lamb and engaging in a rare bit of extraterritorial chemistry with bold boutique label somethinksounds, Gadi Mizrahi delivers his long-awaited solo material under the alias Baby Prince. The Nobody EP, featuring Lonely C and hot property Miguel Campbell and Lucky Paul on remix duty, carries the unmistakable hallmarks of Mizrahis unique and kinky productions.
Title track ‘Nobody’, co-produced with Lonely C (aka Efunk ambassador Charlie Levine of Soul Clap) is mellow and heavy with skittering cosmic beams and a deep distorted bassline under naked drums. Absorbed in a sound bed of fluid epic melodies, warm gliding synths and shimmering vocal cuts, ‘Nobody’ is a sonic bath for the senses. Stripping it back, solo track ‘He Doesn’t Say It To Me’ soothes and thrills in equal measure as darkly seductive David Lynch-esque chords and steamy vocals burn through shuddering bass and dissonant FX.
Miguel Campbell is the undisputed new prince of French touch disco house and has had the world at his feet since dancefloor gold ‘Something Special’ dropped last year. On the b-side, the Leeds wonder boy gives ‘Nobody’ a smoother, down-tempo disco sheen bringing more bounce to the bassline amidst sublime spaced out keys. Delivering a whole new interpretation with his ‘Nobody’ remix, New Zealand musician and label favourite Lucky Paul’s lush percussive soundscape expands into an uplifting ceremony of subaquatic beats.
