Review: If you're a keen follower of 100% Silk you may have already heard the chunky, electro flavoured house of "My Life" on last years Silkmix Volume 1. It's a dope track that works around a chugging bottom end and the titular vocal hook from Trevon to create a steamy floor-smasher. "Be Strong" is a touch lighter in its demeanour, employing some thoroughly European bleeps and bongos in the classic house template. Sir Stephen meanwhile feeds a driving, dubby undercarriage and melodramatic piano chords into his remix of "My Life" with strong results.
Review: 2 Hot 2 Wait is the latest album from self professed "Headphone House" producer Coyote Clean Up, and a welcome return to Amanda Brown's tireless 100% Silk label who released the prolific Detroit based artist's cassette album Frozen Solid last year. Across the various formats he's released music on, Coyote Clean Up has always exhibited a charming embracement of lo-fi house that's equally indebted to his local heroes such as Theo Parrish and Aaron Carl (RIP) as it is the skewed UKtronics of Actress, Lukid et al. The seven track 2 Hot 2 Wait continues this approach and it's augmented throughout by a notable celebration of exhibitionism and lust.
