My pick this week is an obvious one. After seven years of impressive EP’s on various labels such as Aus Music, Secretsundaze and Hype LTD, Youandewan aka – Ewan Smith has just dropped one of the hottest albums of the year. This moody, electronic fusion is like all your favourite takeaways in one. The sound design on this LP is of the upmost seniority, reflecting a diverse range of influences from the likes of Moodyman, Levon Vincent and Four Tet. Ranging from the synth heavy deep house shown in “Left on Lucy”, to "4D Anxiety" a playful hip-hop jam effortlessly tapped out on an MPC. There Is No Right Time is proof that deep house done well need not only be for the club goer, it’s an emotive piece of music which stays with the listener long after the last chords have dissipated.
