Midland marked the maiden voyage on his ReGraded imprint only two months ago, with his Double Feature EP. Without a second to lose, the second release is set to go, with Hubie Davison and his Sanctified EP now at the helm. The title track has become a staple of Midland’s sets throughout summer, with it first entering radars during his BR x Dekmantel set (check the exact moment it dropped here). Satisfaction so deep, it prompted Midland to contact Hubie to see if he’d consider releasing it on ReGraded. Though the label may still be in its infancy, the calibre exemplified in this second release proves it to be unparalleled.
REGRD002 drops on 27 November strictly only on vinyl.
Hubie Davison returns to Leisure System with his second release for the Berlin label.
The three-track Khayyam Grey EP has a dash of funk and soul in its blood, apparently drawing on Bill Withers and Otis Redding as much as the analogue-y house of Werkdiscs and Sound Signature, and features ‘Get On’, a riotous slab of peak-time psychedelia, which you can stream below.
The other two cuts are the title track, which the label says “takes cues from Daphni’s stand-up-and-shout, sample-heavy house”, and ‘Vowels’, which first appeared on the Leisure System compilation LSR-LSD1 and turns up here in extended and altered form.
Stream the luscious ‘Get On’ below.
Hubie Davison makes his artist debut on Leisure System with the I Won’t Be There EP, an expansive collection of lush, interplanetary house that is at once vaguely exotic and completely entrancing.
Hailing from Ireland and previously studying music composition in London, Davison synthesizes the emotive melodicism of artists like John Talabot and Caribou with the bare grooviness of Nicolas Jaar, incorporating phantasmagorical vocal samples into a refined instrumental palette. I Won’t Be There is an ethereal listening experience, with tracks developing from calm restraint to exhilarating peaks. Whether it’s the gentle rainstorm that introduces “Mannequin Move,” the gauzy hollers of “Yeh Sai,” or the pulsing piano chords and swollen bass of standout opener “I Won’t Be There,” Davison has a fully-formed feel for mellow grooves, while the thumping, floor-ready Dayvision Rework of “I Won’t Be There” should be getting played out at Panorama Bar for months to come.
Whether soundtracking end-of-summer romance or warming a winter chill, moving dance floors or soothing after-hour comedowns, I Won’t Be There is a thrilling debut from an exciting young artist we’re proud to have join the Leisure System family.
