Ownglow & Dilemma - "Mercy" (feat Courtney Odom) (5:01)
Review: Ownglow AKA Simon Reeves was barely old enough to legally go clubbing when he made his 2014 breakthrough track, "Gold". These days, he's something of an old hand thanks to regular appearances on leading D&B label Hospital Records. Certainly, Inside The Silence, his first EP of 2017, is a more mature sounding proposition than his previous releases. Opener "Breathe", featuring vocalist Ellie Vee and Disco's Over, sets the tone magnificently, offering a sun-kissed romp through soulful D&B pastures. He joins forces with Mitekiss on the heavier roller "Take Me", before inviting Dilemma and singer Courtney Odom into the studio to collaborate on the punchy, melodious and thrillingly bass-heavy "Mercy". He draws a fine EP to a close with "Glo-Mello-Flow", a superb slice of R&B/D&B fusion that's as slick and soulful as they come.
