The City Shuffle EP is the 3rd Wbeeza release on Third Ear Recordings and shows the young Londoner beginning to stretch out and further show his writing and production skills. This is quite a worthy follow up to the first two ep's and he's shaping up to become one of the most interesting UK House producers around just now. 'Candle Groove' is first up and uses repeating keyboard figure and is the only constant in this spectacular ‘freebop' workout. Played live and recorded on the fly in one take with no editing, the track is a whirlwind of muscular, sinuous beats held in a constant tension. There is a breakdown, but the respite is momentary before Wbeeza marshals the arrangement to carry everyone, once again, up and away on the groove. 'A116', named after the warehouse unit that is home to Wbeeza's studio, 'A116' is a dj weapon and designed as such. The structure of the track serves its singular purpose: a roller coaster of a ride around the dancefloor, but with one difference; the end is not a sedate roll into the finish in order to step off the roller coaster. B1 'Hip Op' in contrast to the live, improvised techniques of 'Candle Groove', 'Hip Op' is an exercise in maximising the vibe and energy contained in a just two loops. Very different performing and arranging techniques, same result: killer track. B2 'All Those Beats' following the arrangement of the tracks on the previous 2 Wbeeza eps, the final cut, 'All Those Beats' is more of a song than the other cuts on the ep. And once again it is a song grounded in the London of today.
