First up is 'Truth Is A Lie', fronted by Spoonface of Black Legend fame. It has a strong street sound and a powerful bass / breaks combination, the vocal at times bringing Dizzee Rascal to mind but with an obviously older voice in charge. Dee Kline keeps up the old school references with the rushing synths in the mid foreground.
B-side is MJ Cole's remix of Ill St Blues, a surprisingly up tempo cut 'n' paste number. This features Yolanda, described as 'Aretha Franlin on acid' (acid soul, anyone?!) Ironically it's less soulful than Cole's normal sound, bouncing along with a restless energy.
Both tracks reward repeat plays, and offer the promise that Dee Kline's forthcoming album will be worth checking out.
