Kyle Watson – Don’t Stop EP

Label: Colour In Music
Catalog: CIM005
Release date: 2014-08-04

Kyle Watson’s (Get Physical / Gruuv) Don’t Stop EP begins with a the club-hungry “Don’t Stop”, a song for the start of the night, with strong beats that carry the track and allowing for intricate additions and a memorable, deep riff that returns throughout with more and more impact.
The Rhythm Operator (Dirt Crew / Needwant / Let’s Play House) remix takes things to a surprisingly light tone. The song flows rather than hits, echoed synths bring in beats softly and subtlely, taking that memorable riff and changing it to ambient pleasure.
“Hearing Voices” is a deep track reminiscent of garage, with a dark bassline that grumbles throughout, adding a gritty tone to the duo’s funk.
Will Berridge (Sleazy Deep / Sccucci Manucci) takes the track to abstract levels, with philosophical vocal samples coupled with reverbed stems creating an effective and experimental feel. Distant jazz tones and sudden drums drift over dream-like electric hums, a far-cry away from the deep original, but an inspiring interpretation of the track.
