[A] Echo Inada Feat. Sanna Hartfield - Something I'll Never Get:
Opening this 3 track release is the EP title track Something I'll Never Get, which sees the accomplished vocalist Sanna Hartfield returning once again to Nu Venture Records, and joining forces with New Zealand based DJ and producer Echo Inada. Combining 2 talents together this track touches on the emotions of unshared love, through the use of the evocative vocals, glockenspiel and appreciated synths to create a cold backdrop for the reverb drenched leads and wide expansive strings. With an overall liquid tone this track is filled with contrasting cold yet slightly optimistic melodies which are enhanced by the rhythmic and steppy beat.
[B] Echo Inada - Want Your Love:
Want Your Love is a dancer floor orientated track with heavily swung hats and 4/4 beats, topped off with clean but heavy bass, and a deep driving sub bass alongside the accompanying vocals from Kate Cameron. A feel of dimension and space is provided by the staccato synth hits, that arpeggiate and swing in time with the hats creating a noticeable dance inspired groove. The 4/4 beat running at a 173bpm tempo bridges the gap between Drumstep and the classical 174 break beats common place in Drum & Bass. As a fast paced and high energy track it lends itself to being dropped in a set as the perfect link to switch up the groove between two traditionally structured Drum & Bass tracks.
[C] Echo Inada - No Place I'd Rather Be:
Drawing heavily on the old school flavours and music from his roots, with influences such as Pendulum and Sub Focus, No Place I'd Rather Be provides deep snares, full bodied kicks and gritty leads, over piano backings to return to the Drum & Bass sounds of days gone by. Produced in conjunction with the vocals of Chantelle Rowe to complete this diverse and inspired EP from this gifted producer.
