Once in a while a track lands in your inbox that leaves you feeling enveloped in warmth and excitement, momentarily safe in the knowledge that there really is some good new music out there.
Thanks to the latest release from the London based Good Years label, who have previously released EPs from Lil Silva and Jim-E Stack, Trap has been left enjoying those feelings of duvet comfort, not to mention some unavoidable shoulder shuffling.
The man responsible for all this is Utrecht, a little known Brighton based artist with a penchant for early deep house and New Jack Swing pop melodies, and the track in question is titled ‘APC’. A sumptuous slice of evening-sun soaked house, ‘APC’ draws you in with its glossy and soulful throwback vocal while muted, moody minor seventh piano chords add satisfying warmth to a track we can’t stop playing.
