New York’s favourite boutique label, Scissor and Thread, launch their limited vinyl only series with this stunning EP from Bob Moses.

Bob Moses are the New York formed duo originally from Canada. Attending high school together it wasn’t until later in life that they teamed up and realized their shared passions and united musical vision.

Title  track  ‘Hands  To  Hold’  is  an  enchanting,  deep  house  dream  with  a  raw, grumbling  bassline  and  playful  keys.  The  altering  pace  builds  tension  before releasing into a wave of beautifully reverberated synths, with the hypnotising vocals of Bob Moses flowing fluidly through the intricate layers. An acoustic version of

‘Hands To Hold’ boasts beautiful guitar riffs as the powerful vocal penetrates the senses. Background chords enter towards the rear, building it into a gorgeous final crescendo.


Next up, ‘Too Close For Comfort’ gets you geared towards the dance floor, while the filtered Rhodes chords keep you within the Bob Moses realm of deep house. ‘Val’ then takes you on a journey to paradise with drum samples, seamless synths and tropical soundscapes underpinned by an unavoidable head-bopping groove.

The release also features two tracks released as digital only. Bob Moses team up with Francis Harris for ‘It’s Gone’ with a heavy duty bassline and sensual piano scales. Frank & Tony aka Anthony Collins and Francis Harris round off with their remix of ‘Too Close For Comfort’– with a thumping kick and lush piano chords producing a smooth and deep number, Frank & Tony style.

Keep a close eye on what this special limited label will offer in the future!
