Review: Tehbis – Luckdaw EP (Label Groovement)
Tehbis, may have come a considerable distance since his debut in the honourable four walls of the Boiler Room back in May 2012. Not to mention being launched into the forecourt via the beat-maker connoisseur Kutmah, as regards to the track ‘Higher’ on the 2012 Brownswood Compilation. The boy based currently in the Big City has now spread his musical wings by demonstrating his own particular taste and eccentricity in the finest musical fusions, in this short yet intensely sweet Luckdaw EP. Trust in tracks brimming with ambient vocals, layered with discerning drum snaps and playful samples. His sound may lack in consistency and distinct structure at times, but Tehbis makes up for it in his unmistakable ability to blend sounds and cross genres in an ambitious manner.
