Umii get it right with their debut EP, ‘This Time’
When the silvery smooth vocals of Purple Sneakers Artist To Watch In 2017 REVA DEVITO met the production finesse of B. BRAVO, an amalgamation of slick disco, R&B, soul and dance is born. This collaborative project under the alias UMII has attracted the ears of many earlier in 2017 with their debut single ‘Masquerade’ and announcement of label management with blog-turned record label Fresh Selects, and now they’re set to attract even more with the release of their EP, This Time.
Umii’s This Time is a collection of eight nostalgic, yet modern electronic funk tracks. The duo’s liquid, silky smooth sounds flow between each song with each of the eight tracks offering something a little different.
Whether it be the dancehall inspired beat of ‘Don’t Let Up’, the subdued club banger within ‘Feelin It’, the funky pop harmonies of ‘Dangerous’ or the soulful slow jam ‘Not Alone’, Umii’s debut EP ‘This Time’ casts its net wide and manages to reel in excellence on eight different songs.
This Time is out now through Fresh Selects.
