‘Love Tip EP’ marks the second appearance in as many months for Gareth Whitehead on Lost My Dog. Following his recent collaboration with Random Factor, the Glasgow based DJ/producer now joins another 2020 Vision artist Tom Taylor (aka one half of The Electric Press). A pair of original tracks are remixed by Lost My Dog artists old and new – Robsoul boss Phil Weeks notches up his third remix on ‘On A Tip’, while newcomer Howard Sessions and LMD chief hound catcher Pete Dafeet each tackle ‘One Love’.
‘One Love’ goes deep and meanders around classic pianos, subtle strings and a brief female vocal. Dafeet gets all chunky and Howard emphasises the piano. ‘On A Tip’ is a more techy affair with pulsing synths over bubbling bass. Phil Weeks jacks the beat over a throbbing bass-driven groove.
