Further proof of the rude health of South Africa’s house scene arrives in the form of a fine EP from Black Motion. The title track is something of a softly spun gem, with gentle acoustic guitars, fluid pianos, rich horns and emotion-rich soul vocals (provided by fellow South African Xoli M) clustering around organic sounding house percussion. It has the feel of a summer anthem in waiting. DJ Spen joins forces with Michele Chiavarini to provide vocal and dub remixes, both of which smartly emphasize the original’s pianos and strings while adding chunky new beats. The result is a pair of revisions that drag the track further towards classic house territory. The EP also includes a neat bonus cut in the shape of Miss P collaboration “It’s You”, a track that’s every bit as soulful, breezy and sumptuous as “Rainbow”.
