Following outstanding EPs from Javonntte and Malik Alston, JVXTA returns to the Hardmatter label he co-founded back in 2017. The three-tracker is rather wonderful all told, with the London-based producer expertly combining vocal and orchestral samples from vintage, mid 20th century records with twinkling new electric piano lines, sumptuous chords and luxurious deep house grooves. Dewy-eyed lead cut "Possible" is particularly potent, with JVXTA underpinning loved-up female vocals and simmering jazz-soul instrumentation with bumping beats and drowsy new chords. He continues on a similar theme on the flip, where the ultra-deep, woozy and dreamy "Suzuku Dream" is followed by the equally evocative and smoky "Here I'll Stay", where breezy flute solos, fluid harp motifs and simmering orchestration rises above another bluesy deep house groove.
