Miles Wyde – One Life
Ben Etheridge aka Miles Wyde is a budding young producer coming out of the UK capital, London, armed with an infectious style of house music that oozes warmth, soul and an underlying harmonious feel.
Kicking his debut release off is the ‘Club Mix’ of ‘One Life’, which sees Miles Wyde fuse dreamy arpeggios and a chuggy square wave bass hook with low-slung crunchy rhythms and bright piano progressions. Alo Lee’s pensive vocal styling’s then add a further charm and character the composition, resulting in a sun- drenched house cut to open the package.
Following is a remix of ‘One Life’ from Rucks, who previously released his ‘Find Someone’ EP on the SoSure label in 2014. On this interpretation Rucks turns in his signature rugged house sound which provides a rawer, more underground take on the original, bringing dusty drum sounds, tension building pads and a stabbing bass sequence to the forefront, while subtle dub echoes flutter away in the depths of the record adding a further movement to things.
Then to close the package Wyde offers up a ‘Radio Edit’ of ‘One Life’ doing exactly as the name would suggest and pulling back the composition to a reduced timeframe with the focus laid on the focal points of the original cut.
