A1. Fast Life A2. Blah Blah Blah A3. Dont Play Around With That B1. Hook It Up B2. Blah Blah Blah (Machinedrum remix) B3. Fast Life (Computer Jays skeezer mix) Fast Life is the first EP from producer Drive Me Home, featuring vocals from Olivier Daysoul, Spoek Mathambo and Riky Rick. Combining elements from classic soul and modern RnB, and accompanied by strong remixes from Machinedrum and Computer Jay, this EP is perfectly timed for summer. Title track Fast Life is a shimmering opener, and a perfect match for Olivier Daysouls slick vocals. It reminds of a time when the sound of urban American radio was king and provided the soundtrack to lazy days in sun-blessed parks and streets. The infectious Blah Blah Blah is next and marries vocals from two of South Africas new generation of hip hop performers, Spoek Mathambo and Riky Rick. We found it impossible to resist this one. Two instrumental tracks follow, the 808 chiller Dont Play Around With That and the dancefloor-calling Hook It Up, both great examples of Drive Me Homes aim to evoke established styles whilst trying to find ways to bring new life to them with fresh ideas. The EP is rounded out by a great uptempo remix of Blah Blah Blah by Machinedrum, and a remix of Fast Life by Computer Jay that has one of the baddest basslines weve heard in a long time. Drive Me Home Biography: Drive Me Home, based in Dalston, London, has been making music since 2004, and in 2007 produced a hip hop album for the respected label, Big Dada. Following that he evolved and refined his sound and started the production outfit BBQ, releasing the well received mixtape BBQ Season 2010. It was on the strength of this hybrid of hip hop, RnB and soul that Citinite offered to release a record and provide an outlet for his new Drive Me Home project. With a cross-pollination of production influences, ranging not just from masters like Jam & Lewis and Timbaland, but also from indie and post punk records, Drive Me Homes aim is to let love songs work convincingly on the dancefloor during a time when most club music is solely about rhythm.
