Jonny Cade’s name has cropped up on the underground circuit more and more over the past few years, the initial turning point for the fledgling star was his, ‘London To Leeds’, EP which was released alongside Huxley on the reputable Kolour Recordings imprint. Since then, Cade has gone on to release an array of solo single and remixes for the likes of Loco Records, Left’d and Black Key Records, and recently had one of his tracks featured on Michelle Owen’s, Moodmusic compilation. A striking indication that Cade’s mature and attentive approach to production is making waves in all the right places.
The release kicks off with title track ‘Find My Way’ which features exciting young vocalist, Ria Moran’s heartfelt tones. Cade opts for swinging 909 drums and a hooky bass-lick as the driving force, while Moran’s voice sporadically eases in and out of the groove and understated chord stabs and tension building strings fuel the musicality, resulting in a classy, deep-house workout. Up next is ‘Dr. Fox’, embracing a similar deep, contemporary house aesthetic, with saw-wave bass hits, cosseting pads and hooky vocal snippets acting as the fundamental elements of the cut, Cade then plays on subtle variations in the groove throughout its near seven minute duration, to maintain an evolving dynamism and enticement.
Entering the latter half of the single we have ‘Ghostryder’ up first, Cade opts for a more upfront approach this time, bringing busy drum programming to the forefront, alongside sweeping synth tones, a tom-driven bass line and dubbed out vocal licks.
