Review: The Manchester electronic music scene has long been defined by its' openness towards warm and soulful sounds. Contours, the production alias of percussionist turned producer Tom Burford, neatly fits this historic brief. Rich, toast and evocative, but with enough space in the mix for individual instruments and elements to shine, Technician is a quietly impressive debut. With Burford's loose, organic percussion to the fore, plus occasional saxophone, bass guitar and double bass, the EP's six tracks impressively meld elements from dreamy deep house, modern soul, West African rhythms, jazzy house, and hard-to-describe downtempo grooves. As a result, it's a comforting and hugely entertaining debut.

  1. Lisbon (6:24)
  2. 5th Planet (5:45)
  3. North West (6:47)
  4. North West (Kaidi Tatham remix) (7:08)
Review: Given that Tom "Contours" Burford has spent much of the last year making collaborative cuts for Banana Hill that draw on tropical rhythms and native African musicianship, it's probably unsurprising that his return to Shall Not Fade should also feature some of the same influences. It's nominally a deep house EP, but the set's three original tracks are much more nuanced and open-minded than that. Check, for example, the layered hand percussion and polyrhythmic instrumentation on the jazz-funk influenced deep house brilliance of "Lisbon" and the tropical-tinged, intergalactic sci-fi house of "5th Planet". The B-side boasts two versions of "North West": the lilting horns, music box melodies and soft-touch percussion of Burford's original, and the Herbie Hancock inspired bruk-up business of Kaidi Tatham's superb revision.

Cat: ELE 002. Rel: 17 May 17
Deep House
  1. Rush (5:46)
  2. Contours - "Night Shift" (6:48)
  3. Replete - "Legislate" (feat Bini) (6:35)
  4. Sameed - "Someone Like U" (6:43)
Review: Sample-based, hip-hop influenced house label Ele returns with a second missive. This time round, there's a trio of artists at the controls, namely Manchester man Contours, GAMM and Local Talk regular Sameed, and the previously unheard Replete. The latter's "Legislate", a loose, languid, jazz-flecked chunk of sunshine deep house warmth featuring the suave vocals of Bini, is arguably the EP's standout moment - though it is pushed all the way by the crunchy drums, meandering electric piano solos and head-in-the-clouds dustiness of Sameed's "Someone Like U". The breezy, synth-heavy Balearic house breeziness of Contours' "Night Shift" and the drowsy, cut-up house thrust of "Rush", created by a producer who wishes to remain nameless, complete a fine package.

Too Much Talking (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: BHILL 002. Rel: 19 Feb 18
International
  1. Too Much Talking (5:35)
  2. Express (5:55)
Review: XOA continues to lay out a formidable interpretation of African-infused dance music for the modern age, following on from lauded appearances on Shake, One House and Soundway. Alongside Contours, he comes to Banana Hill with some next level transcendental head-quaking business that reaches from the roots of Afrobeat right through to contemporary FX dubbing business. "Too Much Talking" is a proper eyes-closed roller for the hazy moment in the dance, and "Express" ramps things up to a strident tempo layered with a barrage of congas and djembes. The hectic pace is offset by swooning melodies, all wistful synth splashes and plucky guitar chops, stirring the soul as much as the feet.
