SKMK - the Italian duo of S!LK and APON - join Lost My Dog with their debut EP, Giving Up On You. Having scored his first released with legendary German label Plastic City, S!LK has impressed in recent months with releases on Magnetic, NiteGrooves and Seamless Deep amongst others. Together in his new collaboration with APON, the pair have produced four tracks that combine SKMK's love of hardware and vintage synths, taking in elements of classic West Coast bumping house combined with soulful chords and twisted vocal stabs
I Can Love kicks off proceedings with bumping vibes throughout flavoured with vocal stabs washed in reverb and filters, warm Rhodes chords and hanging strings emphasize a soulful edge. I'm Gonna freshens things up with hands in the air vocal hook over a classic house drum arrangement. Lead track Giving Up On You combines all the elements of a soulful deep house jam, warm organs, skipping drums, beautiful vocal and a sweet as nut groove. I Know Your Head rounds off the record with a cut full of lushly pitched atmospheric pads flavoured with a raw gritty bass line guaranteed to get heads nodding, feet stomping and tails wagging.
