  • 1. Set the tone
  • 2. The Power Of Love
  • 3. Moves

Following the success of 22-year old East Londoner Ossie's 'Tarantula' on Lightworks Kode9 quickly snapped this soulful, funky three-tracker for Hyperdub. 'Set The Tone' is a percussion-driven, sun-hued infectious broken house bomb - frankly if the cute baby vocal cut-ins don't make you crack a smile your dead inside. Super cool 'The Power Of Love' on the flip builds intensity with waves of orchestral strings, a swung-out drum pattern and spooked synthwork - sexy!  Finally, on a completely different tip, is ‘Moves’, slower but still perhaps even more danceable. If it wasn’t for its rasping, grimey bassline, and some classic house strings and xylophone towards the end , it could be mistaken for a long lost Sa-Ra dub or the instrumental for an R&B classic.
