sidney charlesArtist: Sidney Charles

Release: Going Down
Label: Moda Black 
Genre: Dance – House

Sidney Charles, a name that’s been on the tip of everyone’s tongue of late, drops a stellar three-track EP via Jaymo & Andy George’s Moda Black imprint this July, entitled ‘Going Down’.

Title cut ‘Going Down’ opens things up, seeing Charles offer up his signature dance floor focused style with classic, heavily swung house rhythms, a raw bumpy bass hook, retro string stabs and a wandering, rugged synth lined, resulting in a quintessential house cut which oozes charm.

Following is ‘Warehouse Anthem’ which as the name would suggest tips the focus over to a dark and brooding vibe, Sidney employs boomy, reverberated drum sounds with bubbling atmospherics, menacing synth sounds and hypnotizing acidic tinges, again creating something understated and packing a punch.

Then last up to round off the package we have ‘Hurricane’, a brilliant closing piece which veers the aesthetic over to a more organic feel with natural percussive elements and rounded sub-bass tones, while an amalgamation of spoken-word vocal lines and crowd recordings generate a profound depth tucked away in the background of the composition.
