James Welsh "Novelty Island"
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
London-based producer James Welsh sent over "Novelty Island," a grooving dancefloor exclusive with a simplistic keyboard melody keeping time while another low-slung synthline weaves in between straightforward house rhythms. All the while, Welsh delicately dots a raspily soulful vocal sample over the top of his nearly eight-minute production. And there's more where this came from on Welsh's The Way EP, which is out now via Join the Dots.
