Digital dealers for discerning dancefloors and sophisticated sun downs, Higher Love Recordings, return on April 1st with a 3 track EP by the uber talented Jesse Fahnestock in his 10:40 guise. The title track, Kissed Again, featured as the closing track to the much-loved Higher Love Vol.1 compilation released at the end of summer 2021.
In the words of Dr Rob, “Kissed Again begins by bubbling bucolically, before its big piano chords build an end-of-the-night excitement, and a climatic acid breakdown cements its anthem-sized ambition”.
This EP is backed by 2 new cuts showcasing the different production styles the American born Stockholm based producer is renowned for. Fin is a haunting blissed-out beauty tailor made for the majesty of a warm summer sunset. Coat Check closes the EP and sees Jesse head into his Jezebell playbook producing a slo-mo spacey sojourn into an electrochug wilderness.
Heavy Water rushes in on a siren-like synthetic fanfare, while dramatic, rattling percussion promises some kind ofimminent lift-off. Mr. Basejam doesn’t disappoint, delivering a dynamite, deep, bass-heavy chug, tested by depth-charge sonar blips. A menacing LFO arpeggio propelling the piece out onto the peak-time dance-floor. Its snarlsoftened slightly as Ron launches that fanfare once more. Moody, magnificent, body-moving, it drops down to a congabreak, and then hits you with some real horns, before bringing that bolshy bastard of a beat back. Ltd edition 10" vinyl available from Juno
