FYI Chris – Snod Hill EP
More high-grade material from the Rye Wax associated West Friends label. It sees the return to the imprint of Rhythm Section International sort FYI Chris, who first appeared on West Friends 12 months ago. As usual, the two cuts are wonderfully deep, atmospheric and evocative, balancing the needs of the dancefloor with the producer's passion for crafting fluid, saucer-eyed soundscapes. This is arguably best exemplified by the dub house-inspired shuffle of A-side "Ad", which also boasts some thought-provoking spoken word samples. B-side "Pas" may well be the first deep house tune to ever sample the UK government's infamous, Cold War-era "Protect and Survive" public information films. As a result, the track is undeniably creepy despite its obvious dancefloor credentials.
