Nathan G "Sunday Sessions EP"

Out Now on Kinky Vinyl

Nathan G has been producing material alongside his friend Paul Goodyear as Lifestylus, but here he delivers his first solo material for Kinky Vinyl, following on from his remix of Fuf & Goz's 'Coffee 2 Go', entitled the 'Sunday Sessions EP'.

'NYC Groovin' kicks off the EP, it's deep warm chords rippling through the groove as the vocal rises up and over the top, just before a funky scratchtastic disco groove complete with diva vocal kicks in. It's an uplifting and happy way to start off the EP, and does the job nicely, but don't

'Reach You' opts for a more minimal groove, echoing drops and rolling bassgroove, a film style vocal oozing from within the emotive chords that pepper the latter half of the track, although the percussion line doesn't really do much for me personally.

The final full length track of the 12" EP is 'Brother Get Up', which takes more reclined approach with a dramatic drum roll and synth line piercing the full on funky groove as the soulful vocal 'Get On Up' takes over the speakers, changing gears through a series of vocoders and coming out the other end into a rougher edged groove that continues to outro.

A mixed bag of tracks, with a DJ Beats version of 'Reach You' to finish things off, but whilst these offer some funky uplifting house, in comparison to earlier Kinky Vinyl releases this one failed to ignite me. However with future material to come once more from Guy Gerber, I still have faith that order will be restored.
