After last year’s highly sought after collaboration between Coyote and Nesreen Shah that resulted in the dreamy “Moving” on International Feel, Coyote are back for another summer record for 2011 with their equally beautiful ‘Always’ on Needwant. Teaming up again with songstress Nesreen Shah on Always, Coyote have created a hypnotic groove from the outset; a ghostly vocal over a driving slow tempo bassline that keeps you hooked throughout. The results are a sublime piece of haunting dance music laid somewhere between electronica and balearica that manages to trap you in a haze of echoes and drums, perfect for the encroaching long summer days.
The UK based duo Coyote, run the Is it Balearic? imprint and have had remixes and productions on labels such as International Feel, Claremont 56 and Big Chill. Also featured on this release is the summery Corona. Bringing that much needed feeling of clouds parting and the sun arriving, the slow building percussive build is topped with the arrival of the piano line dragging us out of the winter months. Neville Watson, here flying solo on this remix, rather than his celebrated partnership with fellow lover of all things 808 - Kink. Neville subtly works the groove of Always, edging up the tempo, adding his trademark old school sound and keeping the full vocal intact. On the House Dub he ups the jack factor and lets the bassline and drums create the raw dancefloor punch to complete what is a great EP for Needwant.
