They say trust is important in any relationship and that’s something we’ve got in spades for Giuseppe D’Alessandro and his Apparel Music crew. For years, these guys have been releasing pumped-up house, always drizzled with jazz and we believe in everything they’re gifting! Be it slapped baselines, sharp sax or squelchy keyboard, Apparel know a dance tune when they hear one.
The next delicious record from their corner, comes all the way from the tiny island of Malta. Not only that, its creator is only nineteen! With a playful name (Edd) comes playful tracks. A 4-tracker that’s bubbling over with energy. Cheekily, the EP and lead single are titled ‘Fock Quarantine’, an obvious jab at being cooped up in the house all day. For a 19-year-old kid who writes heat like this, lockdown would be superbly frustrating. Thus, Edd’s venting in the only way he knows how.
Our eyes are set firmly on the closer ‘Last Saturday’. Made up of unrelenting Mall Grab-esque snares, a damn fine kick and droning pads, this one’s a lo-fi lovers oasis in the desert. I don’t know about last Saturday but I’m looking forward to future Saturdays where I can oscillate in the dark to more of what Edd’s serving up. Keep it locked on this youngster!
