White Noise: Natan H & Amy Jean – For Her

Thursday, 31 January 2013

Natan H & Amy Jean – For Her

Label: ManMakeMusic

George Fitzgerald’s impeccably curated ManMakeMusic has, over the course of its 5 releases to date, acquired a special place in our hearts not just for great music, but also for an eerie knack for spotting new talent. Apart from the labelhead’s debut release, each slab of wax to date has been by a fresh face, and the choice has ranged from Trikk’s excellent techno hybrids to Leon Vynehall’s dusty house concoctions to the mysterious and experimental debut release from U. The one thing these varied releases had in common was their superb quality, so when we heard that MMM was putting out another debut, we were more than a little excited.

The label hasn’t disappointed, turning out a patient and nuanced set of deep house burners from the relatively-unknown pair. Title track For Her sets the stage nicely; a solid groove underpins bright, airy synthwork and an impressively textured percussive range. The opener’s half-heard vocal snips come to the fore in second tune For Her, where a locked melodic loop not miles away from The Field compliments subtle vocal manipulations and another steady 4/4. Closer Rush features New Zealand's Amy Jean, and just about lives up to its name, upping the energy levels with an addictive bassline and a spacious layout of synths and vocal cuts. For Her isn’t chock full of dancefloor killers, but instead MMM again sidesteps the club market and offers something interesting, a polished selection of immaculately produced burners that offer a pleasant sense of space alongside the irresistible grooves.
