Shiloh "I Really Want U"

Out Now on Nascent Recordings

The past year has been a rollercoaster ride for the Shiloh boys Justin & Colin Moreh. With five singles under their belt, their own Internet radio show Electrofly, not to mention countless remixes already under their belt, it seems they show no signs of letting up anytime soon. They have recently completed collaborations with Marc Mitchell, Benz & MD, Fragrant Music's Jolen Essex and also vocalist Michelle Chivers, and have still found time to continue work on their forthcoming artist album and also put together this single, 'I Really Want U' for Nascent Recordings. Blimey, there's no rest for the wicked, that's for sure.

Fusing driving beats and electro hooks into a rolling house groove, the 'Death By Chocolate Dub' is another great dancefloor track from Shiloh. Dynamic layering allows different elements to be brought in and out of the groove freely, the floating melodies giving the track a spacious feel, with the void filled with some tight breakbeat arrangements and a robotic vocal with addictive tendencies. Don't worry about overindulging however, as there's a 'Death By Chocopella DJ Tool' for those vocal cravings.

The remix is provided by 'Andre Absolut' who's work on labels such as Ritmic, SOG and Vapour in the last few months has really seen him begin to come into his own. His pumping bassline and heavy beats build up the tempo nicely, with big melodic stabs and string effects taking us into the main vocal section, with the bassline slamming it's way through the break and exploding as Andre pulls out all the stops and turns in an awesome electronic house mix that is every bit as impressive as Shiloh's own original.

Amongst the mass of new tracks and remixes that have been appearing from Shiloh in the last few months, 'I Really Want U' is up there with 'Swerve' as their best yet, and is the finest offering to date on Nascent Recordings, who's releases in the last few months have been nothing short of impressive to say the least.
