1 x blue 12" Vinyl with screen printed Shall Not Fade sleeve, inner white disco bag and colour printed centre stickers.
Swedish producer and one to watch, Fidde, joins Shall Not Fade for his debut Real Love EP. The up-and-comer has gained attention with infectious self-released singles, blending house rhythms with more complex, natural instrumentation to great effect on this vinyl only release.
Subtle echoes of birdsong swirl around a glittering house beat in ‘Real Love’, emotive sax and keys giving a jubilant feel to the record opener that captures the feeling of the early days of romance perfectly. ‘Limmie’ uses hand drums and dreamy guitar loops to evoke hot summer holidays; the echoes of vocals and tinges of electro intonations bring the club energy. A jazzy edge to the EP builds from ‘Cry’, where gentle piano is drawn into focus before the pulse of the dance hits, and melting across to the B-side with ‘Funky Mr. Cameron’ - one long groovy, explorative jazz riff with playful guitar snippets. Dynamic percussion undulates throughout ‘Me Without You’; a soulful, hazey song full of romance and complete with sax solo - one for star-crossed lovers on the dancefloor. ‘Reminisce’ serves up high energy to close out the EP, building from the swirling melody into chopped up vocals that become an unstoppable earworm - ending with another delicate touch of that 303 bassline.
