Kilkenny producer Peter Lawlor is Replete and has signed to the Northern Ireland label Champion Sound, home to the so-hot-at-the-moment UNKNWN, for his next release, the Hold Me EP. It’s out on March 4 and sees Lawlor go in a different direction than I was expecting. I thought he might veer into the deeper, darker side of electronica, but he’s actually gone for what he says is a more chilled, deep house sound, a la Moodymann and Theo Parrish. I’m not complaining. The EP as a whole has a real party vibe and is brasher and more confident than his releases to date. The title track is our first step into the four-song release and provides a delightful, delectable slice of old-school house that adds a sprinkling of vocals. It’s big, and deserves to take Replete to the next level.
