When 5am – Stakeout


If lush house with a digital R&B influence sounds your thing, here’s an EP for free download.

You might remember we had Hyse’s Get In Love a few months ago, which I loved. They’ve a new EP of tracks out, and they’ve changed their name to When 5am. Apparently, “due to a few complications” whatever that means. Can their new stuff match the earlier track?

Get In Love opens the EP and it still a beauty. LXI is up next and has that same delicacy. There are similar disembodied vocals, with more of a soul feel. But still full of little catchy melodies operating just beyond the foreground. Phoe operates more in UK bass territory and doesn’t quite move beyond generic. Wait A Minute is the most experimental of the tracks, with an IDM feel but doesn’t quite develop itself. A bit too much the XX I fear.
