DOWNLOAD: Hackman & Jamie Grind - Saw The Light (Mista Men Remix)

The Footwork EP on Glasgow's Fortified Audio imprint, out digitally today, marks the debut solo release for Yorkshireman, Jamie Grind. After releasing on Spatial's Infrasonics label with the resplendent 'Balloon' and 'If You Want' on a split 12" with Irish producer Gon, Grind has been a staple in our Hivemind FM sessions, often providing a melodic respite to the overloaded drum workouts we're prone to.

Featuring 4 tracks, including the constant drum machine trickle of 'Without You' whose high pitched percussion line bubbles over snatches of Grind's 2step blessed drum lines, the EP shines thanks to a collaboration with fellow Leeds resident, Hackman. Called 'Saw The Light' its more subtle than the other three tracks, peeling off in tangents, before the snatched vocal merges with the roughened bass line, creating an emotive house tempoed workout that gets better with each listen.

To mark the passing of the EP, we've been bestowed the honour of passing out the Mista Men refix of that Hackman collaboration. In the Doncaster trio's patent leathery style (check out their recent SR mix) they focus a little more on the interplay between 4x4 pulse and the bass, splicing apart the tunes melody whilst managing to retaining the same kind of harmonic linearity.
