Music is often used as a mean to forget, escape and withdraw from the world around us. In some cases, it even has the ability to transport, and Just Be's 'Dip Your Finger EP' on Rebellion does just that. The UK born DJ and producer has created a four track release with accompanying vocals from the ethereal Jesse Monroe.
'I've been spent the last six months writing futurist electronica soundscapes for the big screen so it's been great to get back to my roots and produce some warm, moving house and tech music - and working with my beloved Jesse on the vocals again - I feel these tracks work both in the dance floor and for listening pleasure. Enjoy' Just Be.
'Dip Your Finger' opens up the EP with seven minutes of otherworldly goodness. Just Be seamlessly brings together Monroe's beautiful vocals with a range of sounds that sets the tone for an immensely warm and absorbing release. All the tracks follow on from each other with a real sense of consistency and the EP closes with a deeper edit of 'The Good Old Days', taking the listener into the final stages of an enchanting journey.
