DALI 'Voynich' (Hobbes Music)
Here, DALI releases her debut double A-side 12” on Edinburgh’s Hobbes Music label. The producer first appeared on our radar when we heard her remixing Sophie Barker’s track ‘I Do It To Myself’ in an analogue style, a rework that sounded like it could have come out on Trax. This release, meanwhile, has already caught the interest of big names such as Auntie Flo, Ben UFO and Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay, and it’s not hard to see why.
We’re intrigued as to what the title of B-side ‘STCFTHOTA’ stands for, but what we do know is that it’s a self-assured grooving house cut with a skipping drum loop, pulsing synth rises and spacey atmospherics; it’s one of those tracks that won’t go stratospheric, but will definitely have longevity. ‘Voynich’ will find favour with the techno fraternity, but it’s the stunning simplicity of the flip that does it for us.
