The Love EP

A 4 track broken beat ep (17m 37s) — released June 3rd 2013 on Bastard Jazz Recordings

Bastard Jazz is proud to present The Love EP from Cork, Ireland based DJ and producer Colm K. Colm, a 2009 graduate of the Red Bull Music Academy, has been making waves for a few years now through after his debut Basics 12" for Bastard Jazz and a 7" and a 10" released on sublabel BSTRD Boots (the latter of which is sold out and regularly changes hands for upwards of $50 on eBay and Discogs), and recently shared billing with Mr. Scruff on a Hypnotic Brass Ensemble remix 12" on Choice Cuts.

Here on The Love EP, Colm's musical vision has truly matured on a fully realized 12" that draws on such disparate influences as Herbie Hancock, 80's boogie, J-Dilla, vintage House music, Floating Points and Q-Tip productions. Things kick off with "The Attic", paying homage to the classic " " by " " with it's immediate synths coupled with hard hitting boom-bap drums, rhythmic percussion, deep bass, and twinkling keys before transforming into a seriously bouncey boogie bounce midway through. Next up, "Nothing" works in a "Love Hangover" inspired vocal line sung by ______ with it's booming kicks, astrologically inspired synth leads and acoustic guitar stretches. On the flip, "Good Fridays" bumps nice and tough with it's neck-snapping drums, synth chords and plunging sub-bass before a midway changeup into a seriously deep piano driven monster - a perfect late night surprise. The EP rounds off with the 63 BPM cosmic jam that is "Spaced" with it's slap bass and delayed synths sitting perfectly in the pocket. Art for the EP comes from graphic artist Donal Thorton, notable for Onra's Long Distance cover, and many of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble covers on Choice Cuts.
