- Whether it's been the low-slung deep house of Outboxx, the organic techno of Rhythmic Theory or the sunrise stylings of Jay L, Brstl has become one of the more reliable labels on the UK scene. The fifth release is from newcomer Shanti Celeste, and it makes a case for being the label's strongest to date.
"Need You Lovin (Baby)" is contemporary UK house at its very best. Sultry pads slide over a bed of airy kicks and claps, supporting an irresistible female vocal. As the vocal roams freely, a rubbery bassline is introduced, which is later adorned with a lustrous set of synths. Warm and uplifting, it'll have you basking in summer memories well into winter. "Result" is considerably tougher, applying dense ripples to a brawny kick and bass combo. Sparkling synths add light to the track, marking this out as another strikingly mature effort. Need Your Lovin' (Baby) manages to reference house's golden age without coming across as trite or gimmicky.
