SV012: GLXY – Small Talk / Trinity
Soulvent Records return to the scene with their 12th release to date. This one is from the latest addition to the ever-expanding family – talented young duo Tom Alston & Jonathan Campbell, better known as GLXY. The single opens with the epic A side ‘Small Talk’ – a soulful, liquid masterpiece, dabbling in the darker side of the genre.

The B side ‘Trinity’ follows with similar vibes to the title track. With a choppy, melodious vocal sample & dark bass grooves, ‘Trinity’ touches on the rougher edges of the Soulvent sound. The 2 tracks give a pretty clear idea of what these guys are about – a truly harmonious medium between light, fluffy liquid and dark, glitchy tech. GLXY are definitely ones to watch out for.
