Julio Bashmore feat. J.Danna - Simple Love
Julio Bashmore has released a new tune called "Simple Love". It is a very classy sounding house track, something of which he has become somewhat of a specialist in. The idea of something doing exactly what it is says in the title is bought to the fore here. There is a cool female vocal, repeating a direct and simple refrain. Accompanying this is a classic house beat. What I particularly like about this is the way it feels as if it rides on the crest of a wave. There's the intro section, where it feels like the beat is slowly building, with a really prominent 808 clap from the start, followed by the first repeat of the vocal refrain with the beat dropping out. The way it comes back in is brilliantly subtle, just like the rest of this track. It feels simplistic, as if nothing is rushed, but it is still so danceable, lasting just over 5 minutes. Apparently this track is a taste from Bashmore's forthcoming album, which is due for release early next year, which will serve as his first full-length album. Definitely something to look forward to. But in the meantime there is his production work on Jessie Ware's second album, "Tough Love", which will be released on October 6th.
