The 17th release on Convert Recordings comes from Tim Scott and vocalist Danielle Gillieron under the guise of Slackjaw. This release, Don’t Stop comes with a Gold Digger Mix and Vocal mix to please those who like their vocals, and those who prefer it left out.
On the a-side is the dubbed Gold Digger Mix. It’s a chunky progressive record that relies on electro influenced stabs and a tribal drumbeat as well as deep and subtle baseline that gives the track a smooth and not too obvious groove. It’s a pretty impressive heads down track, that only uses slight vocal lines.
The Original Vocal Mix on the flip however is definitely one for the ladies as they say. A pretty solid musical affair with tight drums and minimal baseline work, the vocal does a lot of the work from pretty early on. A breakdown midway sees some high toned synths enter while the electro stabs gain intensity, and from here on the track hits its peak as the beats come roaring back in.
A pretty solid release that doesn’t amaze but is far from bad either. A pretty good vocal helps things along, and on that note should really help this release.
