Forget Me Not ft. Neo – What Were You Gonna Say?
A new electronic label based in Edinburgh, Diamond & Raw have looked beyond the capital for their first release. Production talent is courtesy of Bristol's Forget Me Not, on this track combining slick, sexy vocal house with an infectious 2-step vibe, some layered sub-bass, and a melancholy R&B vocal from The Boxette's vocalist Neo.
The remixes elevate the track, particularly Huntley & Palmers star Auntie Flo's broken beat-meets-low-slung house outing, with African rhythms and chopped and filtered vocals. Gullfisk's take has the flavour of early James Blake. A promising first release – radio-friendly but forward-looking.
