Ali King: 12″ EP

The latest Vanity Press 12″ starts out with some jazzy broken-beat-but-not-quite house with soulful keyboard licks and bongos over a galloping beat. “Return” brings the lushness, with slightly hazy 808 State-y synth strings, simple but busy beats, a bit of distortion, and not much else. The claps get you totally in the spirit. “Session 28” starts smooth and bubbly, and then the sax loop comes in. “Nebula” rides some bouncy delayed claps and thumps, with a bit more sax tucked underneath, and then some sneaky breakbeats pop up during the second half. A very vibey record overall.
