Why do we like this?
We've recently found ourselves tagging a lot of our articles as "electronic (or electro) soul." The sound this describes can take two directions. The first is simply beefing up a classic soul sound with percussion and bass -- like this Ramadanman remix of Nina Simone. The other style is much more of a mesh of the two. Pursued by the likes of Indie Shuffle favorites Jai Paul or Lapalux, this version of electronic soul has glitchy beats and wonky samples interspersed with more sensual sounds.

The latest purveyor of this second sound is Raffertie. The Birmingham-based producer has received support from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs and now has an excellent EP, Build Me Up, to go with it. You can grab a copy from Ninja Tune and expect to see the name of Raffertie around these parts a lot more in future!
