Amy Dabbs - Places EP (PRE-ORDER)

Running Out Of Steam


12" EP

Running Out of Steam return with their eighth release this time from London born, Berlin-based DJ and producer Amy Dabbs. The daughter of an original Northern Soul DJ, Amy started her musical journey through a vast collection of Motown records - lending itself to further exploration and inspiring her unique take on electronic music today.

Since her widely acclaimed debut EP on Distant Horizons, Amy has released music on Slothboogie and Lobster Theremin’s White label - infusing a classic style at various speeds; from house, jungle and drum & bass. Now, across four tracks, walking basslines and warm sound-design incite feelings of nostalgia, hope and good old-fashioned fun - so let's dance.

‘Places’ starts things off with it’s cascading hi-hats and foot-stomping kick drums; collectively combining classic stabs with feel-good energy in the form of steamy vocal snippets. ‘Flexin’ follows through with more hugs on the dance-floor, a track that almost feels like a final ode to summer and embraces you like the friends we waited so long to see.

‘Be Yourself’ embodies the mantra of doing what you love, a view held deeply by Amy and can be heard running through all of her productions. The melodic elements blossom over beats in an equal exchange of energy, giving birth to a track that makes you feel as if you’re exactly where you need to be. ‘Rise’ then switches from the 4/4 template in favour of slickly programmed breakbeats - while maintaining the essence of classic house, with Amy’s own and ever embracing take.
