Around one minute and 34 seconds into 'The Touch', a broad, beaming grin should, if your face is all working properly, start to spread warmth into your soul. Scots wunderkind Grum has manipulated a Nina Simone album to some rather devastating effect here. It’s the kind of affirming house music that makes you fall in love with it all over again and want to hug strangers on a sweaty, pulsating dancefloor. In the sun. Add some very competitive mixes from Sebastian Leger, Solaris Heights and Andre Sobota, and you have an ample and unexpected contender for track of the summer.
Drum & bass seems to be going through a nostalgic time at the moment — this track really is ‘Like A Memory’. A concoction of elements which create a vibe taking us back a decade, but combined with modern techniques and influences. A joy to listen to. Great layering on the vocal.
"Not only a long-time friend and co-collaborator of mine, but also one of the finest rhymers, poets, playwrights and published authors in the country. Kate's approach to lyricism constantly pushes the boundaries of the art-form, and her new album will definitely have an impact on how rappers are measured."
"One of the most creative and individual performers on the scene at the moment. Every time Mo plays me a beat it makes me want to write, and seeing him perform live is a glimpse into how in the moment his creative process is."
