After years of brewing up an emotive brand of lo-fi House from his home studio in darkest Epping Forest, production protégé TYTHE released his debut long player on 19th August.
Although a producer of undoubted skill, TYTHE goes beyond studio aplomb and knob twiddling. While tipping its hat to the avant-garde, And Also With You can still evoke every sunlit morning-after and every future frolic in a field. With popping beats and euphoric lifts of the finest dance music tradition, lead single Careless Woman peaks with full-throated vocal sample, while Run Into The Sun and Set in Drone are built on tougher ground, there’s a psych-hop detour with cult folktronica artist Merz (Summerbelly) and a ghostly vocal contribution from Rachael Dadd on The Light.

In a genre – indeed a world - that often heads straight for jugular rather than be caught out in the open, And Also With You is the most open record you will hear in 2013.

But you also have moments of complete terror and utter disbelief that this music is worth sharing with anyone, let alone the world at large. This clash might be best exemplified by the fact that I still haven’t played the record to my family or friends, the people who know me best…”
