Progression epitomized: Guy J holds the progressive fort two remixes at a time [EP Review]
From long playing landmarks for Bedrock to his stab at the sacred Balance series, Guy J’s reign has not gone unnoticed. With his Lost&Found imprint making a consecrated sweep of the globe’s finest underground talents, the Israeli talent returns armed with two of his own remodels to set in motion another triumphant year for the left-of-field. Behind Twice As Nice’s “Overture,” piercing grooves and agitated leads run amok, whilst Ambassador’s “The Fade” is transformed into yet another of those murky yet melodic triumphs that have become Judah’s progressive calling card over the years. In two tracks, Judah epitomizes everything that is exciting about the genre and its more thoroughbred contributors: diverse textures, unprecedented compositional aptitude and the kind of outspoken zeal that only top tier producers have truly mustered. All evidence is in – Guy J emerges into the new year as an artist capable of keeping the genre’s integrity publicly illuminated throughout.
