||2.||"LeSexe" (Lee Stevens & Domino remix)|
||2.||"Symphony" (Simonlebon & Jakobin remix)|
The second EP for deep house crooner LeSale aka Sammy Jenkins comes via Luv Shack Records. Wailing and whispered R&B vocals appear on "LeSexe", as does a pumping bassline - similar to Bicep's earlier material - and sustained chords that waver in amplitude thanks to a subtle sidechain effect. Lee Stevens & Domino's remix straightens out LeSale's original, adding some extra tribal percussion, while also reworking the chords. Clacked percussion in "Symphony" creates a skippy groove that builds into a vamped chord sequence that falls into a lusty berth of synthesised melody. Simonlebon & Jakobin's remix to "Symphony" adds more low end to the original, in a magnified remix of Kompakt-styled house.
