With this deft, elegant weave of selected vocal cuts and deep yet undeniably driving melody Ricky L creates a unique form of pure, stylish House that takes a recognisable pop aesthetic and remodels it for the soulful, sophisticated dancefloor.
A familiar vocal cut sets the emotional tone of A Side “Nothing But” with carefully crafted melodies leading the track towards a powerful, moving break which creates a touching moment perfectly fitting with the nature of the track. The A2 Dub version of “Nothing But” maintains the mood of the original but does away with the full vocal and utilises a more direct arrangement to provide a very strong DJ tool.
On the flip side is the low slung swagger of “Justeen” which rides a fiercely sexy vocal sample on the back of a beautifully hypnotic melody and bassline to provide the perfect late night groove.
It’s Just a…
Lastly “It's just a…” rolls a classic Chicago tinged groove underneath an effective sliced vocal to create a reduced and distinctive cut on the B2.
