The Vanguard Project Deliver A Tasty Treat With Their Vol. 4 EP
Posted by Josh on 10th July 2017
Following on from the huge success of the Spearhead Presents show at Egg LDN, Spearhead Records’ head honcho BCee has once again teamed up with label regular Villem to present the fourth instalment of their popular EP series under their joint alias The Vanguard Project. This release exemplifies diversity, with four very different and unique tracks.
LUV U TNITE begins deceivingly, the glistening atmospherics and vocal hook deceiving us into certain tranquillity – that is until the thunderous percussion and hefty bassline compels you to cut some questionable moves in front of the DJ booth. This tune is electric with energy.
Love Calls will never fail to put a smile on your face. The bass is alive, snarling and biting when you’re least expecting it. I just hope my neighbours agree with me on this one…
Wizbit is next up. There are some serious reggae vibes in this tune, from the vocal sample to the jaunty drums and it is an intriguing change in direction for the EP.
My pick of the bunch however is Diamond Dust. There is something beautifully nostalgic about the cascading piano chords and soulful vocals hidden inside. The vibes are endless, and it will be on repeat for weeks to come.
I’m already looking forward to Vol. 5!
