DJ Earl & Heavee "Sex a Pill"
- Words: Derek Kaneko
As Teklife affiliate DJ Earl prepares his next EP for the All Roads imprint, we're treated to a smooth-flowing cut of Chicago footwork. Created with with the help of fellow Teklife producer Heavee, "Sex a Pill" begins with a looped set of glossy piano chords, which the pair builds on by easing chopped vocal bits into the mix. Quick percussive cuts make their way through the piece, giving the production a breadth of sound as soft snaps and hi-hats echo in the background. Before DJ Earl's as-yet-unannounced EP drops at the end of April, All Roads will host a label launch event on April 5 in East London, where DJ Earl will headline along with artists such as K-aze, Om Unit, and N-Type; the full details for that party are available here.
