New EP on Ibadan Records: “Leads & Bites Vol. 3″ Leads & Bites Vol. 3 is the latest release in the essential EP series, closely curated and produced since 2010.
Following the warm reception of the first two volumes in the “Leads & Bites” series, Ibadan Records is returning with a third volume to be released on vinyl in December, 2019. The Leads & Bites series was launched in 2010 to address the growing appetite for a musically versatile, pumping house release among house music connoisseurs. Over the years, the action-packed series has seen the likes of Tyree Cooper, Earth People, Kerri Chandler, David Sumner and Christian Prommer contribute to the series. The previous volume, Leads & Bites Vol. 2 quickly became one of the label’s most sought-after contemporary releases. The new edition welcomes Ibadan’s longtime artist Argy and Ibadan’s new generation torchbearer, Janne Tavi to the growing series. Track listing: A1. Whisper Track (Dub) sees Argy’s prodigious return to the label in this collaboration with Sydenham, which features an energetic club sound with a hint of mystery and darkness. A2. Purple Beech is a testament to Sydenham’s love for deep house. This lighter version of a classic house track, based on dreamy aesthetics showcases the beauty and simplicity of deep house. B1. Street Jazz is Tavi and Sydenham’s flashy house offering, combining raw, smoky beats with Tavi’s signature keys and exotic percussion for an elegant yet warm showstopper. B2. Herb Martin - Soul Drums (Jerome Sydenham’s Raw Dub) emerged when Sydenham delved into the historical catalogue and enriched this Afro percussive gem, giving it some fine polish and a harder edge in his updated edit.
