As it happens I stumbled upon Chew Lips when Elite Force decided to revamp a bonus track off the debut album ‘Unicorn’ on kitsune. Tigs comprising the selling point. She’s a commanding frontwoman, imparting gravitas to wilfully obscure lyrics (“It’s your high-speed chase on your wedding day, give and take are all the same”) and warmth to a canvas of frosty clicks and bleeps. Perversely for a synth-pop trio, Chew Lips also have a bit of a thing for guitars, but they’re at their best when they stick to their electronic template. The most striking track here is Toro, whose pulsing bass-and-keyboard heart drags you straight in.
the Elite Force Revamped track has had the nod from the band so expect for this to land on re:vamped 2 some time in 2011.

1. Jamie Evans – Kill Yourself
2. Jamie Evans – Exploding Glass
3. Jamie Evans – Exit (Nothing Edit)
4. Jamie Evans – Exploding Glass – Raw Hedroom’s Mariana Trench Remix
After the chart smashing Jill Bellac and release for FFEP005, Firefly recordings return with some absolute class in the shape of Jamie Evans‘ KY EP. Lush, beautiful pads and melodies make this release a timeless and anthemic addition to Firefly recordings growing catalogue of specialties!
1. Kill Yourself
This really is something special. Kill Yourself was originally written by Jamie Evans on demo software, and when he had to eventually turn off his computer after some weeks, the track was lost forever, save for the audio file, which was incomplete and never to be released…..Until, Jamie played the track to Max Cooper, who then featured it on his circle mix. Max was inundated with requests and inquiries about the track, and convinced Jamie it had to go out. So here it is, a beautiful, anthemic masterpiece, so nearly lost, and now released on Fireflyrecordings on popular demand!
2. Exploding Glass
If lush productions ever had a definition, this track would be it. It sucks you in with beautiful delayed melodies and epic chords, and not a phoney build or drop in sight. Top class productions from Jamie Evans.
3. Exit (Nothing Edit)
Jamie Evans shows his range with Exit, dabbling in broken rhythms and interesting production techniques to yield another stunning addition to his massive KY EP.
4. Exploding Glass – Raw Hedroom’s Mariana Trench Remix
Trapez’s Raw Hedroom goes to work on Exploding glass here, turning out a groove driven remix. Plenty of deepness and wobble make this a killer on the right dancefloors.
