Qritikal Records mastermind Kosmetiq drops a jazz tinged, St Germain inspired three-tracker for the brand new PHONO001.
‘I’m Coming Home’ is a soulful house gem combining Heather Hoyle’s sumptuous jazz flute with the gritty blues vocals and guitar of award-winning Papa George. Adding layers of synth lines behind a bumping deep house rhythm, Kosmetiq produces an emotive midtempo number with a touch of the Gregory Porter to it.
For ‘Horizontal’ Kosmetiq takes the pace down laying out a dusty, downtempo, Rhodes laden beat that provides the perfect basis for Donovan Blackwood’s beautifully introspective recital of Heather’s spoken word poetry. Heather turns her talents to the sax this time round, passionately performing a series of irresistible melodies that complement the hazy leanings of the track all too well.
Rounding off the EP, ‘Lazy’ keeps things laidback with a neo soul jam that was originally written by Heather but is made all the more expressive through Shea Soul’s incredible voice and Heather’s ever reliable jazz flute licks. Slick scratch segments, glistening keys and a full-bodied bassline make this an irresistible groover for any occasion. [info from Label]
