Last November, Cork DJ and producer Colm K released a downtempo EP. For 2017’s equivalent release on All City Records, the Heights EP offers a wider range of upbeat sounds informed by his love of love of soul, house and jazz along with dancefloor cuts.
The four tracker kicks off with grooved thump of ‘Seeing’, there’s the laid-back blunted beats of ‘Water’, the house spun ‘Affinity’ and the short jazz-inflected closer ‘Affinity’.
“I grew up in a place called Silverheights, Mayfield. Hence the name of the EP. The music on here represented musically where I came from and Cork’s fusion of Soul, Rare Groove, Hip Hop and House. Cover art is by Cork born artist Conor Harrington. Shots of a work in progress which resonated with me, and fitted perfectly with the music, and I’m very grateful to him for allowing me to use it!”
