Cooly G - 'Hold Me EP'


Floats between garage and grime at one end, and deep house and dub at the other

Cooly G - 'Hold Me EP'


Album Info

  • Label: Hyperdub
4 / 10 Brixton producer Merissa Campbell has built a steady profile over the last five years. She’s released a string of 12-inches and an album, 2012’s ‘Playin’ Me’, for Hyperdub, and built a solid presence on the UK club scene, where she floats between garage and grime at one end, and deep house and dub at the other. 'Hold Me' is the latest step in her dancefloor march, but it doesn't quite work. The title track feels tentative and without climax, with a refrain that feels more like a nervous wish than a bold proclamation, and 'Oi Dirty' and 'Molly' are repetitive and without the emotional depth normally omnipresent in Hyperdub releases. It's functional, but dispensable.
