Catalogue Number
Release Date
September 27, 2010

Debut from Julio Bashmore and Hyetal's sleezeball side project. “The Velvet Collection” is a concept EP of four subtle variations on a distinct theme: luminescent, synth-soaked cosmic boogie infused with marching 808s.

Opening track “Booty Slammer” announces Velour‘s intentions: longing chords give way to cavernously low booming 808 sub bass. Bittersweet as it is seductive, the track rolls in half-time, punctuated by a very sensual vocal refrain.

“The Scent Of Romance” and “Kick It Till It Breaks” both adapt Dirty Bird school of House elevated by Velour’s distinctive vintage synth work. Both tracks work as spectacular tech-soul centerpieces heavy on the low end.

“She Wore Velour”, a theme song for the project, is broken and grimier, a UK Funky sensibility crossed with the pitch-bent leads and basses of early Bok Bok tracks like "Ripe Banana".
