Returning to Defected Records with less youthful exuberance and a whole heap more solid studio experience, British House protégé Guy Robin gets even more cozy with Simon Dunmore’s renowned imprint with solid soulful swinger ‘Heaven Or Hell’. Boasting a popular podcast on top of his prior Defected frameworks, this potent blend of subtle melodic turns and finely tuned leads is accompanied by a standout top line from familiar Electronic Dance Music voicebox Amba Shepherd, whose tantalising stylings fit the mark with a precise transition from her somewhat heavier past exploits. Raising the flag for British House music’s more unwinding attainments, Robin is back on form with this aptly divine nod to his seamless craft.
‘Heaven Or Hell’ is due to be released on March 21st via Defected Records.
