I never thought that this week would be the one where I’d see the name DJ Paleface pop into my newsfeed. But it is and for this, a huge shout out goes out to the Xylo Music people!
An important actor of the original Sheffield area Bassline scene, Paleface was responsible for such classics as Voicemail or Do You Mind (which was exposed to a wider audience through a pretty wanky The XX cover a couple years back) and his Rinse FM mix CD still holds a very dear place in the hearts of many 140bpm 4×4 wobbly bassline lovers. Unfortunately it has seemed like Paleface had slipped under the radar for a bit and his new release with Xylo is finally putting him back on the map again.
Slowing down the pace, his new track U is a nicely crafted bass-heavy House missile in the vein of what AC Slater and Taiki & Nulight have been doing and it very definitely hits the spot. Paleface is back and he’s once again showing us that he’s ready to lead the pack.
U can be downloaded for free from the Xylo Music Soundcloud page.
