It's fantastic to see some new material coming from UK–based project Shy Luv, otherwise known as producer Jake Norman, Sam Knowles (aka Karma Kid), and vocalist Ryan Ashley. We were actually just having a chat with a friend earlier this week, who reminded us about Armeria's remix of Karma Kid's In My Arms that we posted a year or so ago, and how great of a collaboration it was. Armeria's given name of course, is Jake Norman, yes one–third of the previously mentioned power project, so you see how this is all coming together.
The past month has seen the trio release the first two singles off their forthcoming Caught Up On You EP, first with the set's title track and more recently it's follow–up, Where You At. We're suckers for a great vocal sample at the start of a record, and this one executes that to perfection, neatly setting the tone for Shy Luv's melodic electronic meets soul approach. Much like Caught Up On You, Where You At flawlessly displays the projects forward thinking sensibilities, and it's got us properly excited to see what's coming next.
The four–track EP is out June 8th, with the vinyl available for pre-order now.
