Wet your Self is a London party that extends the weekend at Fabric, and as a record label they’ve put some time into pushing the kind of house and techno that works well when reality is best put off for a while. here they bring another release out from duo App (who’s Marc Houle remixed ‘All I Can Think About’ also graced the imprint), and whilst their original and the Thomas Muller remixed versions of ‘Breathe Love’ are adequate enough, it’s all about the Fabrizio Maurizi version.
The one time Minus starlet strips everything back to some bare beats and clunking metallic noises, with a gently whirling melody in the background hinting at what’s to come. Whilst never overly spectacular in it’s inception, there’s still enough to hint where it’s heading with the subtle interweaving of the vocal. By the time the atsmphere takes a decidely more interesting twist around the four minute mark Fabrizio has hooked you in with a brilliantly produced clunking rhythm to create one of those records that when dropped by a DJ, really let you know they are in control.
Bonus track falling adds some lovely pads to an impossibly long groove and a pining Dave Gahan esque vocal, but it’s all about the way Maurizi plucks ‘Breathe Love’ from obscurity to near essential territory. Fans of the way Johnny D makes expert usesof meandering vocals and delicately nagging urgent beats will lap this up.
