HUBIE DAVISON RELEASES ‘GET ON’
From the forthcoming ‘Khayyam Grey’ EP released 1 December 2014 on Leisure Society
Hubie Davison returns to Leisure System December 1st, 2014 with the Khayyam Grey EP, his second release for the Berlin-based label and one that marks both his and Leisure System’s funkiest output to date.
Following on his 2013 debut of pastoral electronics and muffled house, Khayyam Grey highlights Davison’s vivid production skills, drawing from a deep well of influences varying from Werkdiscs and Sound Signature to Bill Withers and Otis Redding. The three tracks here are also the strongest representative document yet of the 26-year-old Davison’s DJing, which incorporates all manner of memorable house and assorted wonkiness and has seen him play in Panorama Bar, Corsica Studios, and Gaité Lyrique in Paris amongst numerous others.
The title track takes cues from Daphni’s stand-up-and-shout, sample-heavy house, while “Get On” is a comparatively restrained yet incredibly funky mid-tempo number. “Vowels”, which first appeared as the opening track on the LSR-LSD1 compilation, appears here in extended and altered form, breaking down vocals on a syllabic level from smooth to percussive.
These three tracks of addictive house have been on constant rotation at Leisure System for the past few months – it’s high time everyone else joined the party.
