Ital's Lovers Rock label has been significantly more present than usual in recent months, and right after an absolute beauty by Sleeper Cell earlier last month, the New York label now presents the full debut of DJ Wey. This largely unknown figure is clearly a close ally of Lovers Rock, supplying a stand out of the label's split release 12" late last year. Granted the full space of a 12", DJ Wey embraces this chance for creative freedom with four heavy house cuts, starting with the heavy bangs and industrial melodies of "Anthem Para La Club", followed by the glitchier, deeper sways of "Emily". Over on the flipside of the wax plate, "Tare Gent Us" is more spectral and progressive in its approach, whereas "Llanganatis" breaks the tempo down to a slow, pulsating swing of gorgeous synth tones and sparse percussion, guided by dissipating moulds of bass. Lovely debut, lovely label.
