We're told Niyi is the coolest dude in all of London. Considering his resume - which includes running the Gauche Chic club night (the alleged jumping off point of the whole new rave phenomenon) and a new night at the painfully cool Punk - and associates (he's been known to roll deep with the Cassette Playa crew and M.I.A.), we don't doubt it. These days he's keeping himself busy with an album of original cuts that's slated for an early 2009 release, and if it's anything like "Amelia" it's going to be an absolute stunner. Like some lost 90's club anthem, "Amelia" thrives on these cascading piano stabs that sound equal parts classic and refreshing and make for one of the most timelessly brilliant jams of '08. He's also made the track's individual parts available for download here, so if you fancy yourself something of a remix talent, get on this shit.
