Corbi make his Kouncil Cuts debut, with the beautifully crafted ‘Decoy’ EP. Three cuts soaked with deep textures, smothered over grooves that walk the line between breaks, jungle and deep house.“You Do It’ opens the EP with a flawless blend of melodic dream-like strings and pads against a rugged breaks sample, and warm bass hits that hook you into its groove from the beginning. A finely executed style that’s made Corbi’s an in-demand artist of late.
“Left Of Centre” continues to prove the versatility of this EP as a crate essential. Nostalgic keys, underpinned by another rolling breaks cut and a climbing bassline that pulls you up and in. Building towards a sliding 303, you can feel yourself falling into it. The third and final track on the EP, “Corkscrew” flips the rhythm, with a grinding deep house flow that punches through the chest to soothe your soul. Sweeping Rhodes and plucking bass notes move through the track amongst finely cut vocals and percussion, culminating in a groove that makes it impossible to stand still.
