Hard on the heels of our standout Klinical release, we're back with an-other slice of packaged liquid D&B gold, this time in the form of SMP’s Angels Call-ing EP. Featuring the vocal talents of Matt Freeman and with a dope rolling Macca remix, the EP is a short but sweet trip through the emotive end of the liquid spec-trum.
The EP kicks off with Reality, a pared-down, muted number that dolorously strolls along, propelled by some heartfelt strings and accentuated by Matt Freeman’s bars that go straight for the feels. The tune gently evolves, getting deeper and deeper, dragging you further and further in until it blisses out into a fathoms deep break-down.
The 2nd track, Angels Calling, is the EP’s centrepiece. It’s a powerful, beautifully en-gineered, evocative piece of music that’s as dynamic as it is beautiful. Constantly evolving and thriving in the stunning collision of juxtaposing elements, Angels Calling is big, clever and so deep you could get lost in it.
The Macca remix of Angels Calling takes everything that makes the original great and doubles down on it, bringing Macca’s impeccable production values into play. Possessing more motive force than the original, it’s perfect for dropping in the mix in either a rolling liquid set, or for bringing some beauty to a dark, techy set.
The culmination of many months work, the whole EP is yet another notch on the Context bedpost and is a great introduction to the talent that is SMP. Keep it locked, because this isn’t the last you’ve heard from this rising star.
