AASH MEHTA and ephem, “Back To You”
Aash Mehta is a familiar name to readers of this blog who have enjoyed his ethereal, romantic and reflective electronic pop and dance tracks over the last five years. Breaking out of that mold for now, Aash returns with a fun, bass-laden house track called “Back To You”, which introduces fellow producer, Charlotte, N.C.’s ephem (aka Nilay Ghatlia) to the scene. With its punchy rhythm, echo-ey vocal call backs, and a solid uncredited female vocal, “Back To You” is an engaging surprise, the kind of song that’s placed in a set midway through the evening deliberately to keep dancers on the floor. The strong results in “Back To You” signal that this collaboration between Aash and ephem is worth repeating.
