Shall Not Fade celebrate their 50th release after 5 years of the label with an all-time favourite and long-time friend, the inimitable Byron the Aquarius. Returning to SNF for his second release on the label, the keyboardist, DJ and producer marks the labels milestone release perfectly. Sunsoaked house with a penchant for acid lines, jazz inspired keys and a bumpin’ groove, What Up Doe? Vol.2 is Byron at his best. A sonic homage to the very beginning for us.

Opener ‘She Want To Work It’ is a masterclass in low-key sass and class, referencing warm, dusty hip-hop beats and daydreams, as it shifts into a luscious, vox heavy kick and clap groove. Futuristic acid lines bubble up on seemingly dreamy dub number, into glitchy electro realms on ‘I Can Feel It’, before imploding into full-blown sci-fi territory on the flip. Here, ‘Apes of Mars pt.2.’ is all nostalgia inducing samples and jazzy melodies, meandering between crunchy beats. Next up, ‘Cosmic Raindance’’s enigmatic, sultry sci-fi vibes bring the EP to new levels. MDMA is back with Byron and the pair are on another planet with this post-watershed jackin’ house, bleeping out into the ether. Rounding out the EP nodding to his love for hip-hop and shimmery keys, ‘Can We Do It Again’ is Byron to the bone. Soulful, infectious house music which we can't get enough of.

What Up Doe? Vol.2 drops December 4th via Shall Not Fade.
