Eliphino - I Don't Care
Eliphino's broad palate is abundantly evident in his garage-flecked house. Following notable releases for somethinksounds and Brownswood, Tom Wrankmore makes his Hypercolour debut with two tracks that embrace hip-hop, rave, R&B and UK garage. He delves deep into the latter on "I Don't Care." Wrankmore borrows a smidge of vocal from Smokey Robinson's "Being With You," and adds taut, woody beats and scuttling percussion to its two-step rhythm. "Understand" delves deeper still into the garage playbook, with warbling vocals and two-note synth stabs, but also introduces yawning dubstep bass and intricate rave patterns. Despite its obvious accomplishment, you're rather left wanting more, as if it doesn't quite fire like it should.
