next up on yoruba is this split release. glasgow’s vince watson invites us to a new dimension with his contribution. another rendezvous says it all atmospheric and carried by simple chords that float over the four to the floor pulse. think movement and formation. depending on your relationship with the universe, one might be able to feel the colours of this track, greens and blues. pensive with just enough edge to secure a commitment from the seasoned djs ear, this one is steady with a sexy incline that holds you through to the other side. come ride. its bold to build a song around a steel drum and a west african shekere, but that’s where it starts with dakota’s ‘make it better’. a gorgeous soulful house track featuring the vocals of dakota and osunlade’s vocals layered and arranged behind and throughout. the groove is a rich and well-constructed song with carefully considered lyrics that speak of longing, praise and caution. listeners hear the echoes of latin accents that call us into to reflection and flight. surrender your hands in the air for this dancer friendly love gem that stretches beyond cliche lyrics. yoruba records delivers another high-quality soundscape that measures across time and space

so … the story goes something like this: being inspired one day by 69 >desire<, vince decided to create an interpretation of it using his own unique sound. the track was done very quickly as a gimmick to send to carl craig as a mark of respect for his own track, now the track has been signed by carl for planet e and the world will now hear that very 12 minute piano and string filled beatless gimmick that is proving to be vinces most musical piece to date. its epic stuff. flipmode with >qualia< which takes off where vinces fcom material left off. deep driving hypnotic dancefloor material with an orchestra thrown in for good measure.
