DESCRIPTION

"Memory" is the new solo EP from WYS! co owner and resident Jacob Husley.

“The first track for the EP was the first track I wrote after becoming a dad this year, I sent it to Chris aka Glimpse to see if he would remix it and he responded “Yes Big Daddy” hence the title"

The originals warm atmosphere is broken up by a darker bass stab, a dreamy vocal floats on top of the underlying  bouncy sub bass. The track builds and breaks finally dropping into a harder groove with busy 909 claps sprayed on top.

Glimpses remix strips the track down and adds his own trademark  warm dusty kick drums and percussion. The vocal gets pitched down, resulting in "one of those" special tracks that can be dropped anytime guaranteed and tested to groove and get the dance floor moving.

“The Second track is called Madeira . Its where i got married"

The Madeira Original is created using a lot of quirky live elements such as drumsticks being played on the studio table and Jacob finger tapping on a old cello. Its steady deep dubby bass line gets the track rolling to a climax where two synth lines slowly intertwine before finally unifying. The drop breaks into the resolution, exposing the clearing mood of the rest of the track.

Axel Boman's remix is unique and true to form. His humour and playfulness maximises the originals  love and warmth .A very personal intro directed to Mr Husley himself is reminiscent of a prankster  drunken  message you might vaguely remember getting on your answer machine after a night out. The track offers a fresh bassline with a more energetic housey feel. Elements of the original synth lines floating on top.
