Richy Ahmed – The Drums EP


Richy Ahmed has produced some decent enough stuff over the past few years, head and shoulders above the humdrum house Hot Creations has come to be associated with. His latest, however, is painfully by-the-books.

That buoyant Hot Creations bassline has by now been done to death, and here it bumbles along with a remarkable flatness. Kevin Knapp’s slurred hip-house vocals slip in and out of view, though the icy high hats add a welcome organic touch.

The flip, ‘101 Jam’, is similarly lacklustre in its progression, despite a big rolling analogue synth. If the beats were a bit more jacking it might take off a bit more; things do improve in the second half, however, as the percussive hits become more skittish.
