Paul White produced creepy lushness from Ahu (Dolly / Flying Lotus), backed with a typically fantastic remix from Dimlite (Now Again) ....Long tipped as a vocalist to watch, Ahu steps softly from the shadows of her lauded guest appearances to deliver To:Love.
Itï¿½s a captivating performance from the Turkish singer whose unique style might be found somewhere between traditional soul and the studied remove of the likes of Broadcastï¿½s Trish Keenan. If thereï¿½s poignancy in her delivery, there is hope in the lyrics: itï¿½s a song about the calm and freedom felt by lovers after they split. Her long-time friend and musical ally Paul White provides the subtle, ever-shifting backdrop, a nuanced electronic counterpoint to the more organic psychedelia of his recent ï¿½and the Purple Brain LP.
Things take a dramatic turn on the b-side as Dimlite focuses on the tumult that precedes the post-break up relief, letting harpsichord fly into ravaged drum breaks and squalling synths before slamming the door for the very last time. Itï¿½s undeniably odd, utterly fascinating, and further evidence that this Swiss wunderkind is a very special talent.
