Released by: Paper Recordings
Release/catalogue number: PAPDLS175
Release date: 9 October 2014
“Above” is a fine slice of nu-disco to kick things off. It’s a kick heavy cut up with P funk bass, Chic guitar, live drums, sampled vocals and a healthy dose of leftfield wonk that has already proved itself at this year’s Electric Elephant.
On the flip “Below” takes things synthy, dark and hypnotic with congas to give it that all important funk element. It builds with 5th stabs, a healthy bottom end and enough melody to keep things interesting but it’s a 4am moment all the way.
