Jabu Ft. Chester Giles – Slow Hours [NC7002]

Having previously released a cassette and 7” single on the label as well as an EP on Ramp Recordings, Young Echo members ‘Jabu’ return with this milestone – a slowly turning piece about love-sickness and longing… This is distilled soul music in it’s purest form.
From the first beat right through to the final chorus, the brooding tension and almost unbearable tranquility of chester giles’ words amplify the heaviness of the rhythm, controlling time until ‘Alex Rendall’ the voice of Jabu sets in with the chorus, echoing chester’s sentiments, elevating this feeling into higher heights. A masterfully executed love-song… ‘Achingly smooth’ as Steve Barker put it.
