Jermainesoul "Time Waits"

This Is It Forever—a label helmed by Gavin Miller of the Manchester-based Ghosting Season duo—is set to drop a new EP from Jermainesoul, a somewhat sporadically releasing producer hailing from the UK's West Midlands. The beginning of "Time Waits," the title track off Jermainesoul's forthcoming record (out on November 18), is a bit deceiving. It kicks off in hyper-fast, Autechre-indebted territory as its opening bars fuse together a set of rapid-fire kicks and revolving melodic sequences, but it's not long before gritty electric piano chords and warmly overdriven pads begin to seep into view, wrapping themselves around the existing jittery patterns to give "Time Waits" a welcome soul-burnt touch.
