Listen to PMR's New Julio Bashmore-Produced Single From Javeon McCarthy
- Words: Glenn Jackson
West London's burgeoning PMR imprint (whose only release to date is Julio Bashmore's stellar Everyone Needs a Theme Tune EP, released earlier this year) has announced the label's second release will come from Bristol vocalist Javeon McCarthy with a track produced by none other than Bashmore himself. Described as a "slow mo future-soul burner," "Love Without a Heart" finds Bashmore operating at a slower tempo than usual—around 100 bpm—for the backdrop to the cut's soulful vocal. No newcomer to the UK's bass music world, McCarthy's smooth stylings were first heard when he guested on L-Vis 1990's "Forever You," under the name Shadz. The single (artwork above), which comes with a remix from Brey of the Die Barbie Musik Kollektiv on its flipside, is set to be released June 13. You'll find "Love Without a Heart" below, for your streaming pleasure.
