Shiloh "Will U Ever Come Around"

Out Now on Electrofly Records

Electofly is a new beats and breaks label based in the Midlands, UK. The first release comes from Shiloh who are two brothers from Canada, Colin and Justin Moreh. Both have been involved in music for many years, djing and producing, and Shiloh is the resulting project that they hope will really make people sit up and take notice. This track, 'Will U Ever Come Around' is the first of several singles they have lined up for Electrofly, with an album currently in progress as well. Do they have the tools to achieve their goals. Let's find out..

The currently on form Infusion have been on a roll as of late and here they team up with Gwill Morris to produce this remix of 'Will U Ever Come Around'. Compacted beats and soft percussion slowly edge us into the mix as a low melody drops over the gnarling sub bass that penetrates the groove. As it is forced to a halt, in comes the vocal through a series of filters, riding over the melody loop. A delayed eerie sound slides right through the break and into the cut up drops of the latter half of the track before it fires on all cylinders one last time. It's surprising how well Infusion's electronic sound fuses with Gwill's melodic tendencies, but this mix is absolutly blinding and is one of the best breaks tracks i've heard so far this year.

The b-side features Shiloh's own 'Original Mix', a track that just sails along slowly, electronic sounds and a dubby groove subtly sitting underneath the electronic vocal, melting slowly into the low bass that powers the track. Spacial effects and deep atmospheric sounds ooze out of every pore of this track and the resulting effect is much like William Orbit's work duing the Strange Cargo era, with the song based production adding to the track perfectly.

A stunning debut for this new label. With forthcoming material from Jono Fernandez and Fretwell and support from the likes of Rennie Pilgrem, it looks as though Electrofly has a serious chance of making an impact, sooner rather than later.
