Fresh Talent EP by Ben Murphy
British producer Ben Murphy makes his South Of Saturn debut with Fresh Talent EP.
Following releases on the likes of Green Velvet's Relief and Vele's Whoyostro, Murphy lands on Lee Foss' South Of Saturn this December with the Fresh Talent EP - a three-tracker of rolling, vocal-tinged house grooves.
The title track on "Fresh Talent" boasts a combination of tweaked-out, heavily swung percussion and visceral FX that sail around hooky vocals that bring memorable energy to proceedings. "Can You Feel It", which sees airy and reverberant vox phrases nestled amongst filtered snare rolls and trippy percussive flourishes, follows with a heads-down yet memorable funk.
"House Ingredients" closes with classic Rhodes stabs weaving between a grooving bassline and rocking drums with the occasional spoken word samples puncturing the track, delivering classic house tropes in a refreshing style. Lee Foss' A&R skills are on point yet again with this South Of Saturn debut for an artist clearly on the rise.
