Air Valley – James Welsh

Some super glidey electronic from Yorkshire producer James Welsh. This was his breakout EP on Losing Suki from 2012 – it feels fresh and smooth in a way not many artists manage.

My highlight is Talk, where the bass takes a backseat to a simple soulful sample (Baby I’m For Real by Motown group, The Originals). Top marks.

Bonus track: since this EP James has released music on a pretty A-list set of electronic labels (WOLF, Hypercolour, Futureboogie) but he has moved towards a stripped-back darker style that I think loses some of the charm of his earlier work. Having said that, I am a fan of this Lancelot-y number. Enjoy
