This is a really nice EP from Manchester based Oli Furness - who uses the typical stabs and vocals you'd expect from UK Garage and deep house. Back to me is very funky and has great vocals, lush 90's strings and skippy beats. He's obviously been learning from the masters such as Grant Nelson, Danny J Lewis, Louie Vega et al. The sample in the breakdown might be scary, but this is pure silk.
The other tracks on here are just as good: Underground Solution remix the first track nicely - with a lot more percussion and that "Tuff Jam" sound I have so missed since the 90s; the typical sax stabs are very welcome too.
Vous et Moi is also very snazzy too, with the Cathy Denis sounding vocals and soft deep house sound that could seduce any listener. This is the deep house track of a mainly UK Garage sounding EP.
This is a sure buy if you love UK G as much as I do, and will be especially nice to deep house fans. Can't wait for Oli's next EP.
