Cameo Culture // Night Swimming [No.19 Music]
After several releases as Soho808 with Nathanial Jay, Brooklyn’s Dave Robertson (aka Cameo Culture) strides out with this delicious solo outing.
Night Swimming opens with a Rhodes-eque warble into a beautiful vocal segment with some subtle risers creating a lovely dream-like state. This is cut through brilliantly by a floor shaking bassline that makes my heart pound and fills me with joy. The arrangement is bang on the money, as is the production. Dave’s years as a studio engineer is evident as everything appears effortless with plenty of space and gravitas in the mix.
Parts of You and I continues the high standards with a lovely jerked-out introduction and New Order-esque vocal part which implores you to listen more. There are some charming piano riffs and synth flourishes to accentuate the track throughout too which mean that these two will be in the box throughout 2012.
Finishing things off is the Slow Hands remix of Parts of You and I which is a slightly more jacked out effort. This would be a great track on its own but I have to remain true and love the innocent charm of the original on this occasion.
Having already been billed with Art Department, M.A.N.D.Y and Tom Middleton, the future looks fantastic for Cameo Culture and I shall certainly be looking forwards to the next release with excitement!
