Lockwood drop a precious gem with the 'Let's Talk' EP

Dessous Recordings unearth a precious gem from Brussels-based Lockwood, with the 'Let's Talk' EP - three tracks that emanate shimmering deep grooves, including a remix from Nils Penner. 'Let's Talk' sets out their stall: a shuffling, shimmying groove upon which an unruffled bassline and blue-tinged jazz chords blissfully coast. This is warm, dreamy, house so deliciously laidback and soulful that it never outstays its 9-minute running time. The choppy, busy handclaps and ridiculously over-the-top squidgy bass of 'Sway' explore different territory - frenetic synth-funk shimmering with layers of synth and zingy repetitions. 'Yearning' for its part melds a tough, rubbery tick to cycling keys and choric pads. It's the bass that's the star here, bending the tune around its abrasive low-end. Meanwhile, Nils Penner underpins 'Let's Talk' with a huge, booming bassline and brings its spoken-word sample to the fore: a treatment which somehow retains the magic of the original's vibe while lending it a dark, glittering technoid edge. Tracklist_ 1. Let's Talk 2. Sway 3. Let’s Talk (Nils Penner Remix) 4. Yearning Release Date: 6th November 2015.
