Jessy Lanza with DJ  Spinn and Taso - You Never Show Your Love EP  [Hyperdub HDB091} out July 24, 2015

Jessy Lanza meets the Teklife crew on this sultry EP, with DJ Spinn and Taso's first released RnB track, and a Teklife, footwork remix with assistance from the late DJ Rashad.

The main mix is a dejected confessional, slow jam with Jessy's plaintive vocal sitting in the middle of spiralling drums and teardrop-like chords, a gentle guitar refrain dropping in at the end like a comforting hand on the shoulder. Following the instrumental version, the Teklife mix doubles the tempo, switching the gentleness to deliver an interpretation that touches on tense anger, with the sweeping chords the track is built on, snapping into shivering shapes, as strings simmer in the background building the tension.

Bambounou's 'Fuck Diamond' remix (from Jessy's debut album) appears on vinyl for the first time (after a release last year on the final Hyperdub 10 compilation) and he transforms it into a rough drum machine workout, leaving sparse elements of the original in there; a splash of vocal and a held chord, building a dynamic trance that slips and slides in and out of different patterns.

Lyric sheet:

Do you plan on leaving me behind
You make my love so cold
I’ll go crazy here just wondering 
I don’t feel it like I should
If you’re gone then let me know

I’ll go crazy here just wondering
Make up your mind, yeah
I’ll go crazy here just wondering
So make up your mind

no you never show your love

no you never show your love, boy

no you never show your love

no you never show your love, boy

no you never show your love

no you never show your love, boy

no you never show your love

no you never show your love

Hoping that you’d come and sanctify 
Cause love can be so cruel , yeah
I just wanted love and extra time
Tell me that you noticed it

Cause i’ll go crazy here just wondering
Well make up your mind
I’ll go crazy here just wondering
Boy make up your mind

no you never show your love

no you never show your love, boy

no you never show your love

no you never show your love, boy

no you never show your love

no you never show your love, boy

no you never show your love

no you never show your love
