Sixth Avenue Express have been gathering a lot of momentum recently with their mid tempo, emotionally charged productions striking a note with a larger and larger audience. While they have put out releases across a plethora of labels their home has always been at House of Disco Records and thats where SAE is now releasing their next solo EP titled ‘I See’. Full of the clever touches and the warmth you’ve come to expect from them this EP delivers on every front.
The first, and title, track ‘I See’ sets the perfect tone, a breezy warm track to seduce to. With a haunting vocal and soft strings coupled with woozy base line its the driving keys that turn this track from a lullaby to confidently invigorating and fresh experience.
Second on the release and most dance floor friendly is ‘Clandestine’ and like the name suggests is best listened in a secretive and illicit location, like a sweaty basement party. This track is laden with the trademark chords that pepper a lot of Sixth Avenue Express productions but its strength lies in its amazing vocal treatments, which shift and grow to an epic level.
‘There’s No Time’ acts a a decompression chamber after a night out, the perfect after party choice. With enough melody to remain positive but a hint of a dark soul ‘There’s no time’ is as alluring as it is fun.
Finally there’s ‘My Love is Alive’ which is the most joyous and optimistic track to see out the release. It brims with full keys, sustained strings and strong vocals. Ending on a high this tracks message is affirming on two fronts, and affirmation of love and an affirmation of the timeless nature of this release.
