After initially launching from San Francisco in 2010, the Rock It Science Laboratories imprint (or RIS Labs, for short) has reemerged as a Los Angeles-based label/collective, with Give In‘s Slow Moves EP serving at the outpost’s latest effort. The alias of LA producer/sound engineer George Cochrane, the Give In project concerns itself with detailed melodic house, of which “Saw Palmetto” is a fine example. Serving as one of two original cuts which appear on Slow Moves, the track relies on intricate percussion to initially build its momentum before Cochrane adds layers of crystalline chords, tweaked synth lines, and jazzy vocal chops to the procession. Out now, Give In’s entire Slow Moves EP can be streamed via the player provided after the jump.
