YSE feat. Frank H. Carter III – Foundations EP (LMD060)
UK producer YSE (of Rhythm Plate) and New York singer/songwriter Frank H. Carter III deliver their second collaboration on Lost My Dog, and the follow up to 2011’s single ‘Guessing Games’.
The ‘Foundations EP’ sees YSE and Frank get into a larger project with three tracks – ‘I Don’t Want Love’ and ‘Play On’ cover warm deep house with incredibly powerful soulful vocals from Frank while a third track ‘Magic In Your Eyes’ shows the duo’s diversity, offering relaxed electronic lounge.
Lost My Dog (and house music) superstar Giom ups the pace on his remix of ‘Magic In Your Eyes’, adding an old-school garage twist, complete with chopped up vocals in true Tuff Jam style and a huge Korg line that brings even more power to Frank’s vocals.
2012 is turning into a big year for Giom who has just embarked on a live tour with Riva Starr, playing events such as Creamfields and venues such as Space Ibiza and Sankeys in Manchester. Giom will also shortly release a mix album celebrating 10 years of Amenti Music, an EP with Fred Everything on Large Music and a remix of Roland Clark on King Street among several other projects. The stems from Giom’s remix of ‘Magic In Your Eyes’ will be made available through Beatport’s ‘Mashbox’ service allowing users to mash up the parts of two tracks on an exclusive iPad app.
YSE and Frank H. Carter III are currently riding high following a superbly well received live show by Rhythm Plate at Fabric in April, for which Frank flew over especially to perform vocals. Frank is currently in big demand having featured recently on the huge drum & bass track ‘Oblique’ by Sabre, Stray & Halogenix, as well as house outings with Subb-An and Wolf+Lamb. YSE has been busy too having recently remixed Demarkus Lewis for Lost My Dog and applying the finishing touches to the debut Rhythm Plate album.
