Your Love Is Lifting Me - EP

Athlete Whippet

Squareglass
SQ031 | 2020-06-17  
Squareglass label founders Athlete Whippet continue to showcase their genre-bending ability on ‘Your Love Is Lifting Me’. Renowned for cleverly fusing different musical influences into timeless contemporary jams, this five track EP sees the duo explore signature sounds furtherfield of the dancefloor.

The duo arrived in 2016, immediately resonating with acclaimed media and radio selectors alike. Continued support on the BBC Radio airwaves from Tom Ravenscroft from the off, and most recently with spins from Jamz Supernova and Annie Mac, Athlete Whippet’s music bridges musical palettes across the board.

Athlete Whippet - These are strange times we’ve found ourselves in. Lots of people around us are losing their jobs and feeling lonely. One thing that we’ve really felt developing is a greater sense of solidarity and compassion. It’s a beautiful thing to witness in such a difficult time. That high vibration that rises out of the low is a feeling that for us carries through this EP. Both lyrically and musically.

Opening with They Need to Know, a spoken word with a clever sample of a speech by Princess Diana in a Women and Mental Health event in 1993, setting the tone for the record with a powerful and relatable message. Downtempo closing track I’m The Best Kind Right Now signs off with Lo-Fi and dubby undertones and a sun-kissed vocal that shines throughout. Sitting between are three groovers that lean more towards the signature Athlete Whippet sound marked by nuanced textures and detailed production.
