The aptly named “One Step Back, Two Steps Forward” three track release expresses without question, a more evolved vibe compared to Towie’s previous releases. A break away from the studio with his head focused entirely on future plans for No Dough has been a sort of turning point, not only for the label, but for him artistically. Closely working alongside label buddy ‘Broken’ on a new collaboration has been the fuel for this exciting new package. The opening track ‘Done and dusted’ starts off on a steady tip, beginning with delayed claps and off beat sub kicks which is brought to life at the 2 minute mark with a remarkable groovy bass pattern that seduces you right through. Followed by a drifting piano riff that spirals in and out of the mix, Towie keeps the groove tight until the break where his love for simplicity gets the better of him. At this moment of anticipation you are left overwhelmed by a cleverly worked lead synth and kick drum which carry the track through its peak in an almost jazz inspired manner.
On the deeper side is the second track ‘Roll the dice’ which maintains a simple groove throughout. Consisting of a warming low bass and a catchy lead, the breakdown is well complimented with a delayed vocal touch. This journey of deep and melancholy techno compliments the A side in a dark and more driven manner. Fellow label head ‘Broken’ delivers a remix of ‘Roll the Dice’ which reflects his well crafted percussive sound, following the huge success of his latest ‘Manfedman’ and ‘Kobe’ on Fling Records expect much more of this guys magic on No Dough.
