Taking the reins for SHDW 004 is Jeigo. Having interned at Phonica, Rye Wax and now Worldwide FM, Jeigo’s wide palette and deep crates are evident on this classy four track E.P which features a tasty remix from Big Miz on the flip. The record emerges from the shadows with a remote sense of longing, an evocative collage of interweaving vocal chops are propelled along by a muted but agitated synth. ‘Everywhere I Go’ is a hoods up, heads down track with enough club ready clout to shift the mood of a dance. Bringing side A to an emphatic close is the swaggering groove of ‘Lord Buck Jazz’. The percussion, bassline and vocal sample strut around the stereo field like a particularly brazen peacock. A tune full of character, confidence and control, its syncopated flow immediately gets you up to get down. ‘Not Used To Love’ opens with an unusual rhythmic pattern which is soon backed by a chorus of swirling synth and distant vocals. Jeigo strikes an intricate balance between melancholy and warmth, as sub bass rumbles before it crumbles and dissolves into the mix. This track showcases him not so much as a beatmaker but as a storyteller, the listener is immediately transported to a different place. A deep cut. The widely respected Big Miz rounds up proceedings with a remix of ‘Lordbuck Jazz’ that brims with energy and intent. A bright bubbler, full of low end thrills and top end frills, that doesn’t stop moving for a moment. No messing about. It boasts a head nodding, toe tapping bounce that’s sure to get the dancefloor moving. SHDW 004 is versatile and essential.
