EVM128 presents Naked Truth EPComment
EVM128's Naked Truth EP continues in the pursuit of the perfect groove, fusing UK Garage, neo-soul, RnB and the bass underground. Out soon on Studio Rockers.
EVM128 is an East Londoner who's been on the radar of many heads over the last year. His unique warm and soulful sound heard on key releases for Somethinksounds and Meltdown recordings garnered him support from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Benji B. 'Naked Truth' continues in this pursuit of the perfect groove, fusing UK Garage, neo-soul, RnB and the bass underground.
The title track, featuring vocalist Daiva, showcases the producers keen ear for hooky melodies and smoky low-slung grooves. Followed by a remix of Naked Truth that dives into 2-step bassline territory dealing skittery garage hats and a drop that's snarly enough to turn heads without blowing it out the water. 'Beyond' see's the tempo sink to head-nod pace with a squelchy synth bass line and a brass sample injecting some soulful swagger to the mix. To finish, the vibe and tempo is ramped to create 'Dibbi Dibbi' a hybrid broken-beat / dubby roller. It sits on that pleasant middle ground between club and sofa: perfect for either.
