Another solid release here from South African producer Jullian Gomes, this time teaming up with Sió. Back on Atjazz’s homebase, this is where he released the spectacular 2016 LP Late Dreamer featuring Bucie, Kabomo and an array of gorgeous vocalists. The lush “1000 Memories” was originally released on Late Dreamer and was an immediate stand-out track. Sió’s vocals here feel as ethereal as vapor, floating over deep and penetrating chords. The remixes here are fantastic: Osunlade, Karizma, Fred Everything and Atjazz himself take turns massaging “1000 Memories” and generating a few new ones. Coming off an overheated gospel-house barn burner on Lumberjacks In Hell, Karizma continues to show why he’s enjoying a career renaissance with a restrained, soulful and deep track that almost sounds like Rick Wilhite mixing downtempo down even further. This is a fantastic record and one that deserves to get a lot of play this summer.
