Title: Yearner EP
Label: Your Mamas Friend
Release Date: 11th Dec 2012
Marcin Czubala’s Your Mama’s Friend imprint goes from strength to strength with this, a new EP from Resketch, a producer who has risen through the ranks with fresh house and bubbly productions on labels like Well Rounded and Infinite Machine.
Getting straight to it, the opening track ‘Yearner’ is a bright and polished, thoroughly new school bit of house that pairs some infectious garage hits with a catchy vocal hook. A swollen bassline carries the whole thing along as neon synths dart about in the spaces. ‘Werk’ again shows Resketch’s knack for designing great and unusual sounds. His synths are dazzling, the hits sound bubbly and distant and the results are purposeful as well as being full of mild euphoria.
‘Linkway’ then goes deeper and more withdrawn, echoing voices creating an underwater feel as streamlined rubber kicks anchor you to a seabed. Pinging bass notes recall shades of the Bristol sound and the resultant effect is a sensuous and seductive groove.
Closer ‘Livin‘’ is a big, swirling melange of deft synth details, gliding hits and liquid grooves. It swells then retreats throughout, allowing brief vocals to shine through the paddy rays of light before kicking once again. Resketch’s sound, like Your Mama’s Friend overall, is refreshingly modern and free from overtly familiar tropes... as such this EP might be the one that garners the man behind it the wider attention he deserves.
