Although Relish Compilation 3 marks the third compiled label round up for Headman’s Relish Recordings, it is a compilation only in form; it has been constructed out of new tracks very much in the guise of an album. In label terms it highlights the new artists that have been unearthed this year – JR Seaton, Andreas Esu, Hannalelauri, Daniel Avery, International, Montevideo – and presents them alongside new tracks from Headman.
EP 1 starts on Side A with Hannulelauri’s Europa, a strict reverence to Europe’s dance legacy. Then it slips on into a quick thrust 808 funk of Headman’s latest Be Loved. Be Loved features the vocals of Belfast singer Rosie Blair from the band Boy of Girl. We then glide through the straight Chicago cut of Andreas Esu’s Dance in Space on Side B and popping NRG/Italo from Chmmr’s collaboration with Glaswegians, a strict reverence to Europe’s dance legacy.
