Testify/Can't U
LT 074
27 Jan 17
BUY
Jamie 326 & Masalo - "Testify" - (8:16) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
Sameed - "Can't U" - (4:42) 123 BPM
BUY
Sameed - "Dusty Jazz" - (5:53) 120 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Since first dropping on wax in the autumn, this multi-artist affair has gone on to be one of Local Talk's most popular releases in years. It's easy to see why. Jamie 326 and Masalo's "Testify" is a fabulously urgent concoction - a low-sling, disco-tinged deep house bomb built around a restless rhythm track, impassioned, gospel style vocal snippets, and killer Clavinet lines. Sameed's dustier, sweatier "Can't U" offers a different slant on the same idea, offering a basement-bothering stomper that utilizes many of the same samples. Finally, the same artist delivers something looser in the shape of deep jazz-house jam "Dusty Jazz".

Review: Following a recent dalliance with Brooklyn-based Razor 'N' Tape Reserve, COEO returns to the loving arms of Toy Tonics with another solid four-track excursion. Happily, they hit the ground running with the rushing positivity of "Mydonna", a bumpin' chunk of peak-time house goodness built around some superb disco samples and a bustling groove. The accompanying, "alternate cut" smartly emphasizes some of the original instrumentation, whilst adding some subtle swing to the disco-house drums. On the flip, you'll find the deep, smooth and sensual "Torrow", and the breezy, atmospheric, piano-laden shuffle of "Coast To Coast".

BUY
Jungelknugen (Prins Thomas remix) - (8:56) 122 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Cheekily, Todd Terje has decided to put out these remixes of forthcoming album track "Jungelknugen" before we've had a chance to hear the original version. While it's hard to know how revolutionary these remixes are - or otherwise - it's fair to say that both Four Tet and Prins Thomas have brought their A-game. Keiran Hebden steps up first, layering up looped, kosmiche style synthesizer refrains, wide-eyed piano motifs, low-slung analogue bass, and the kind of jazzy, off-kilter drum machine beats that simultaneously feel loose and sturdy. While undoubtedly impressive, it lacks the hustle and bustle of Prins Thomas's interpretation, which is drive forwards by heavy, bleep techno style sub bass and the producer's own groovy disco drums.

So Good - (10:27) 89 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Victorious - (8:11) 128 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Here we have a real meeting of minds with the esteemed re-edit label Gamm recruiting Glasgow's very own nu-disco veteran Al Kent to serve up some more of his fine work for our listening pleasure. There are just two cuts featured here, but who needs quantity when you can have quality, eh? "So Good" sees a sultry seductress heavily breathe her words over a smouldering Love Hangover-style twanging groove. "Victorious" meanwhile incorporates 70s disco rock, over-excited clavinets and bongos galore. Heavy-duty boogie vibes!

Back Where It All Began - (3:52) 74 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Three years on from their last full-length excursion - the fine Borough 2 Borough on Delusions of Grandeur - Craig Smith and The Revenge return with their third 6th Borough Project album. Predictably, it's a fine set, with the duo tweaking their now familiar blueprint - think sample heavy, Balearic-minded deep house built around killer grooves and impeccable production - to guarantee a slightly more eclectic listening experience. So, while there are moments of locked-in dancefloor hypnotism - see "The Weight" and acid-gospel thump of "Tainted Dub" - they're accompanied by trips into wide-eyed, loved-up two-step territory (brilliant closer "Back Where It All Began"), seductive, synth-heavy dreaminess (Paul Joseph hook-up "Find Your Rhythm"), intoxicating downtempo chuggers ("Someday"), and much more besides.

Cadillac Disco (original mix) - (6:49) 113 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: Whoever heard of a Siberian heat wave? Well Russia's Sunner Soul is just that - tirelessly providing warm and summery disco cuts from his icy bolthole. Here on the Lowdown EP we get four more of his delicious instalments. The title track is all twangy bass loops and The Hustle style flute melodies, "Dr Love" is a real banger, with a thumping kick propelling a loop clavinet riff and lots of spacey effects and "Wonderland Disco" spread a positive message of change over a snazzy disco-house rhythm. Lastly "Filtered Punk" displays a little French Touch in it's merciless filtering of some vintage boogie.

from $1.86
Review: Luca Trevisi is LTJ Xperience, an Italian producer who began his career in the 1980s. As resident DJ at two of the most famous Italian clubs of the time: Kinky in Bologna and Cap Creus in Imola, he was one of the first Italian jocks to spin house and to reintroduce black music, jazz and latin-bossa classics from the '70s. These are the kind of tracks that gave birth to the acid jazz and rare groove movements. The Beggar Groove LP is his new album, the fourth dedicated to the 'research' of disco/funk, from its origins to today's rhythms feelings on the dancefloor. The smooth acid jazz of the opening track "Way Down" would make even Ludovic Navarre stand up and notice, while soulful and compelling deep funk of "Fooling You" can equally impress. According to the label, the title track of the album is the most demand track by the artist and never released digitally until now.

The Magic Room (Doorly Re Chunk mix) - (8:11) 120 BPM

Review: It would be fair to refer to Dino Lenny as a "veteran": the Italian producer has been churning out dancefloor hits since the dawn of the '90s. This release sees him join forces with Cajual and Hot Creations regular Doorly for a loving tribute to the joys of club culture. The action centres on a meandering, largely spoken vocal describing a mesmerizing late night dancing experience in "The Magic Room". On the lead version - a tasty re-edit by Lenny and Seth Troxler - this is accompanied by "Lazy" style pianos, and a chunky, disco-tinged house groove. The low-slung guitars and bass are pushed to the fore on Doorly's energy-packed remix, while Luke Solomon doffs a cap to the jazz-flecked boompty sounds of Chicago on his busy rework.

Review: In 1976 the unstoppable music monster that is disco finally broke out across New York City, turning it into the coolest place on earth, probably before and certainly since. It was the first time that DJs ventured into the studio to create jams aimed directly at their dancefloors. Now Bare Breaking even have painstakingly assembled about 30 of the most essential tunes from this time. What you'll encounter here are the ground breaking edits and remixes by some of the most important figures of the period including Walter Gibbons, Tom Savarese, Jellybean Benitez and John Luongo. Priceless.

Review: Having tantalised us with his debut retweaks on Chopshop one year ago, the mysterious DJ "S" is back with two more gems for our listening pleasure. The vibes here though are a little less disco and veer more towards the soulful and funky end of the 70s spectrum. "You're What's Missing In My Life" features a killer backbeat, chiming retro production, Philly strings and seductive Marvin-style vocals. On the digital flip we get the brass and piano lament "Let's Straighten It Out", where a croaky voiced dude tries his best to get his end way with his sulking, unimpressed partner.

Review: Producers Marten Roberto and Nikolay Danev made their collaborative debut last summer, delivering a fine chunk of R&B and electrofunk-influenced house via the Mr Moon label. Here they join forces once more, this time on Yam Who's ISM imprint. Title track "Alive" is a more intoxicating, early morning concoction that their previous effort, with dubbed-out horn lines, wild Hammond organs and a wearily soulful vocal riding a heavy dub disco groove. It's really rather good, and comes accompanied by a cowbell-heavy, piano-sporting peak-time rework by the previously mentioned Yam Who. As if that's not enough to get the juices flowing, they've also included the swirling, stab-heavy, soul-flecked deep house bounce of "Everybody Loves Disco".

Review: Marco Niemerski's latest outing under the now familiar Tensnake alias is a typically varied affair, with the long-serving producer variously joining the dots between druggy Italo disco, kosmiche, disco, electrofunk and deep house. Title track "Machines" sits somewhere between pitched-down Italo-disco and deep space cosmic disco, with Niemerski expertly working a druggy arpeggio bassline throughout. Elsewhere, "All In All" sees him build a wavy chunk of peak-time disco around a bongo-laden rhythm track, spacey electronics and an elastic bassline, while the wonderfully Balearic "1975" sounds like Daft Punk after several kilos of Morocco's finest and a fist full of happy pills.

Review: Given his credentials and track record, it's unsurprising that original disco and boogie artists are willing to let Joey Negro play around with their biggest hits. His first stab at this kind of multi-track remix, 2014's Remixed With Love, was such a success that he's decided to unleash another swathe of revisions over two vinyl double-packs. This edition features some killer reworks, including a sublime, on-point rearrangement of Gwen McRae's "Keep The Fire Burning" and a rolling, dubbed-out version of Grace Jones' "Pull Up To The Bumper" that rivals Larry Levan's classic remix. The veteran producer also successfully turns Pockets' "Come Go With Me" into a classic soulful house rub, and pushes Thelma Houston's "I'm Here Again" further towards disco anthem territory.

Review: London based DJ & Production duo Dorsia are back with more jacking house shenanigans on "FM Dreams" where spangling vintage synth textures bleep and grind away in properly bumping fashion, supported by some real lush and textured moments. The club mix of "Mephi" goes for some nice retro flavour on this Italo disco homage with live drums and soaring analogue arpeggios. But the remix later by Curses is where it really shines on this slow burning EBM style makeover with dirty synth funk bass added for great measure. Also worthy of mention, remix wise; is Norwegian guy Karl Fraunhofer's one of the aforementioned "FM Dreams" where he takes it down early '80's style electronic disco avenue rather reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder or Gino Soccio.

Review: Die Orangen, aka aussie producers Dreems & Kris Baha are teaming up for the first time with 2 new unreleased jams under their new alias. Slow and atmospheric, yet punching and grooving Die Orangen managed to meltdown genres into 100bpm 11 minute long trippy trancey bonanza with a substantial amount of jungle psychedelia and heavy drum machines. One Day in Sheperton is a more drum oriented industrial power house tune. With the diggerido and distorted voices coming in towards its 2nd half. This ep includes, as expected from the Malka Tuti crew, with awesome remixes by Italian maestros Fabrizio Mamarella (of Slow Motion records) and Alessandro Adriani (of Mannequin records), Oodandatta Rain is an ep that throws the listener back to the early days of partying in Anjuna beach, when trance was not yet a genre, but a state of mind, and where the "tribal element" could be found in all sorts of bizzarre contexts and remote corners...

Review: Medlar is the first producer to contribute some tried-and-tested secret weapons to the For Discos Only series, a project founded to share the kind of fully licensed, "secret mixes" and "private edits" that were once a huge part of DJ culture. Having previously got busy with the West End discography, this time round Medlar is mining the vast TK Disco catalogue. He begins with the fuzzy dancefloor sleaze of the Timmy Thomas and Queen Samantha-sampling "Shake It", which is accompanied by a gently pulsing, Italo-disco influenced rework by Mytron and Orfofo. Elsewhere, Medlar heads for spaced-out electrofunk pastures on the intergalactic, bass-heavy shuffle of "Tonight", before joining the dots between Jimmy 'Bo' Horne, King Sporty, dub disco and proto-house on the EP standout "Imaginary Dub".

Review: Next up on Bristol's Futureboogie is Alex Warren aka Kiwi who has had previous releases on the likes of Optimo Music, Blase Boys Club and Sneaky Music in addition to promoting for well known London parties and clubs like Orlando Boom/Kate Boss and The Nest. The versatile producer wastes no time getting stuck in, starting out with the explosive "Orca" which features one of the most amazing arpeggios this side of "I Feel Love". There's more vintage, synth driven disco vibes on "Minke" or "Logmans Break" while the feel good nu-disco vibes of "Pygmy" are reminiscent of modern greats like Jay Shepheard or Milton Jackson.

Review: LA's Rigopolar is an 80s-inspired dude who makes grade A space-disco. His latest, Tour De Mal, arrives courtesy of Tom Tom Disco and what a treat it is! The EP opens with the trancey new beat swing of "Need You" (which borders on Chemical Brothers territory a bit). "La Mal" is the kind of deep and dirty drone-disco that Ivan Smagge or Chloe love and it's awesome. "Youth" meanwhile, is a slower, loop based hypno house odyssey. Then heavy hitter Rodion arrives brandishing a trademark sinister acid grind of a remix and it all kicks off. Ace.

Review: The latest missive from the Pachanga Boys' consistently impressive Hippie Dance label is an expansive affair. It gathers together a quintet of tried-and-tested dancefloor workouts, beginning with the dark and woozy, post-punk house throb of Paulor's "La Race". The Pachanga Boys weigh I with a previously unheard edit of Roman Flugel's wonky, bass-heavy box-jam "Deo", before Julia Dessagne dons the Fantastic Twins alias on the creepy, organ-heavy pulse of "Holiday". Elsewhere, Kaspar Bjork delivers a slick but atmospheric chunk of synth-heavy house ("Choir of Young Ravers"), and Zombies In Miami get all trippy and hypnotic on the mystical house of "Flashback Mantra".

James is up first this time, delivery two new tunes: the light and breezy boogie of "So Easy" and the moody electro arpeggios (and Italo disco melodies) of "Hit!". Rayko starts tough we a raw and chunky vintage funk banger called "What's Your Doin" before going all synthy on the smooth 80s RnB of "Get Your Loving".

Review: Razor 'N' Tape has been slowly expanding its' outlook in recent years, focusing on original productions just as much as re-edits. Here, they've pulled off something of a coup by snapping up two fresh cuts from Dutch heavyweights Kraak & Smaak. There's the clipped Chic guitars, jaunty analogue bass, undulating Syclops lead lines and gravelly soul vocals of "Way Back Home", and the filter-heavy disco-house throb of "Seb's Party". The package also includes two tasty re-rubs apiece from Ben Sun and Tiger & Woods. Sun offers up a smooth, nu-disco/deep house fusion, followed by a chunkier, classic house sounding affair, while Tiger & Woods offer two superb variants on the same throbbing, electrofunk-meets-Balearic piano house template.

Review: Throughout his 16-year production career, former Greens Keepers member James Curd has gleefully stuck two fingers up at po-faced dance music purists, delivering a string of singles that put dancefloor fun above chin-stroking moodiness. He's at it again here, cutting up the woozy vocals of Likasto on the glassy-eyed electrofunk/deep house fusion of "I Get Up". It would be fair to say his tongue remains firmly in cheek on the celebratory shuffle of "Disco Fool", where Chic style guitars, rubbery live bass and jammed-out keys ride a dubwise deep house groove. Man of the moment Red Rack'em delivers his first remix in a while, offering a deeper, heavier, tech-tinged interpretation of "I Get Up" that's suitably wonky.

There are three slinky cuts to enjoy, two of which are by the man himself, with the title track being a delicious slice of four to the floor retro boogie, and "Loveline" rocking the percussion-heavy spacey funk vibe. Lastly we encounter the laid back, elastic bass and clavinet-laden funky sing-along "House Party" by Fresh Wesley and re-edited by VMR.

Review: By anyone's standards, ESP Institute enjoyed a hugely successful 2016, delivering a string of fine singles and killer albums from Moscoman and Lord of the Isles. This first digital missive of 2017 is equally as impressive, and comes from the previously unheard Nancy Azzuro. Opener "Grace" is undoubtedly impressive; a rolling trip into 21st century dub disco territory blessed with killer percussion work and an addictive electronic bassline. "Illustrations & The Large" is a deliciously woozy and melodious chunk of softly spoken Balearic deep house, while the loopier "Teen Bee" fixes ghostly melodies onto a loose and warm disco-house groove.

Review: After an extended summer break, Apersonal Music returns to action via a first EP in five years from Cisco Cisco. It opens with the comforting shuffle of "Jazzy Days", where intricate electric piano lines, woozy chords and soulful vocal samples ride a near horizontal, slow-house groove. It's accompanied by a trademark Ron Basejam remix, which retains the rich, jazzy deep house feel of the original, whilst adding a little more disco swagger. Further disco and boogie influences can be heard on "Jazzy Nights", which is a flickering, synth-heavy deep house treat. Andre Vegas' smooth, sweet and sultry interpretation of that track rounds off a fine E.P.

Review: For the latest EP on his fast-rising Sprechen imprint, Chris Massey has joined forces with Spanish producer James Rodriguez. As the title makes clear, the two original productions showcased here were inspired by the druggy, off-kilter world of early '80s mutant disco. They begin with "Take Me Higher", where effects-laden vocal samples and disco string stabs rise above a trippy, Italo-disco style arpeggio, before dipping the tempo on the spaced-out, proto-techno era electronic shuffle of "Spanglish". Gina Breeze provides a chunkier, heavier, dubbed-out interpretation of "Take Me Higher", before Rave-Enka turns "Spanglish" into a new beat-meets-early UK rave smasher.

Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Rather surprisingly, this is File Under Disco's first release of 2016. Happily, it's a bit of a doozy, with Brooklyn's J Kriv gathering together The Disco Machine band for the first time since 2013's much-played "Make It Hot". Escort's Adeline Michele guests, adding strong, catchy and attractive vocals to an authentic NYC disco bomb built around a Chic style groove, fluid synths, crunchy Clavinet lines and cowbell-heavy percussion. The authenticity of J Kriv's production is highlighted on the accompanying Instrumental, while old pal Dicky Trisco does his best Walter Gibbons impression on a near 11-minute remix that allows each instrumental part room to breathe.

Review: Without attracting much hype, Das Komplex was responsible for some of the most enjoyable, dub-fuelled disco and Balearic releases of 2016. He's started 2017 in pretty confident fashion, too, delivering more fine fare via Father & Son Records & Tapes, People Must Jam and, now, Love On The Rocks. Interesting, this outing is a little bolder, woozier and weirder than some outings, though his love of reverb and delay remains a constant. "Szlugi" is an eccentric fusion of clattering drum machine percussion, trippy synthesizer motifs and lo-fi electronics, while "Polenz" effortlessly joins the dots between cosmic disco, jazz-funk and sample-heavy deep house. Best of all, though, is epic flipside "Flauta", a musically rich, Clavinet-heavy dub disco affair that rises and falls for 13 spellbinding minutes.

Review: For this release, Editor's Kutz has flipped the script slightly, officially licensing a couple of classic Italian disco cuts by author-turned-composer Pino D'Angio. The freshly re-mastered "Okay Okay" is something of an eccentric curiosity, with D'Angio providing super-fast Italian rap vocals over a groovy disco backing-track loosely based on McFadden & Whitehead's "Ain't No Stopping Us Now". It's accompanied by two fresh re-edits: a subtle, punchier touch-up from Sleazy McQueen and Vinyladdicted, and a filter-heavy disco-house interpretation by Lilo and Deaf Kick. Finally, and arguably most impressively, the Reflex subtly adjusts Guido Minisky's brilliant re-edit of D'Angio's sax-laden, boogie era jazz-funk workout "HeyCiao Tu".

Suitably refreshed, they return with a first EP of 2016: a fine three-tracker from Space Echo (AKA label co-founder Lee Stevens and fellow Austrian Christoph 'caTekk' Abele). Happily, there's plenty to admire, from the loopy, smoky, blues-house shuffle of opener "Go Down" - where infectious, impassioned vocal samples ride a loopy, string-drenched groove - to the fantastically righteous '70s-funk-goes-acid stomp of closer "Rainbow Power". "Rare Function", another trip into chunky disco-house territory that boasts some notable electric piano samples, is also quietly impressive.

This teaser single trails two highlights from the album: his updated, jammed-out cover version of Maze's proto-house classic "Twilight" and "Cranc", a deliciously epic, acid-laden exploration of warm and woozy late night deep house that boasts some similarly analogue synthesizer motifs. As a bonus, the EP also contains "Twi-Dub" - a fantastically rough, ready and acid-fired take on "Twilight" full of additional percussion and proto house style dub effects - and a hazy, late night deep house remix of "Twilight" by pal Eddie Niguel.

Review: Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart is a veteran producer who began in the 90s releasing cult deep house records. Since then he has explored all things groovy and now he's back under a new presidential moniker. He's recruited his old pal Sabba MG for these new jams too, with his sweet and soulful falsettos being the icing on the skippy garage cake of "Going To A Go Go". Meanwhile "Night Time" is a classy homage to the warm grooves of 80s funk. The former also appears as a sparse and heady "Deep Mix" and the latter gets a dubbed out treated too.

Review: It would be fair to say that In Flagranti's latest EP, a collaborative affair alongside New York based performance artist Ayamakay, is one of the best things they've put out in ages. This is due in no small part to their smart choice of remixers. Polish dub-head Das Komplex does a terrific job, stretching out a spacey, dubbed-out groove, before twisting "Tonight, Good Night" into a bustling, dub disco masterpiece. For those who dig the Idjuts style disco dub drums, he's also delivered a tasty Bonus Beat version. In Flagranti themselves deliver a smoker-friendly Dub of "Pokkit Pokkit", while Dutchman-in-London gives "You Only Live Once" the full glitch-clad punk-funk treatment.

Review: Long serving re-editor Sunner Soul is one of the disco scene's more reliable scalpel fiends, releasing regular doses of hazy, good-time grooves on the Vintage Music outlet he founded some years back. Further proof of his skills - and those of his label artists - can be found on this eighth expansive Vintage Music compilation. It gathers together a scintillating selection of reworks that veer from good-time disco smashers and groovy warm-up gems, to scorching disco-funk slammers and bouncy, sun-kissed shufflers. Happily, there's a mix of old-fashioned rearrangements and tooled-up reworks, with source material that's both well known and obscure.

Review: Since making his name with a string of fine EPs on Electrique Music earlier in the decade, Bufi returned to action last year with a fine album entitled Revelacion. Here, a quartet of likeminded producers takes it in turns to rework tracks from that set. Spanish producer AFFKT steps up first, sneakily turning EBM-influenced chugger "Apocalipstick" into a hard-wired chunk if throbbing, Italo-disco inspired sleaze. Eskimo Recordings regulars Zombies In Miami delivers a sparse, electro-influenced revision of "New Ground", before Max Jones tiptoes the fine line between acid-flecked deep house and psychedelic nu-disco on his re-make of "Interlude". Finally, Damon Jee gives "Peaks" a thorough going over, fixing Nitzer Ebb style electronics to a dark-wave disco groove.

Review: Nebraska has been a busy boy of late, delivering killer material on both Mister Saturday Night and Delusions of Grandeur. Here he dons his favourite balaclava and joins Detroit Swindle's Heist. He begins with the groovy, loose and low-slung disco-house bump of "Khan's Bargain", which is also brilliantly remixed by obscure boogie specialist Tom Noble. The tempo increases dramatically on the wide-eyed deep house sprint of "The Blues", before Nebraska enhances his Balearic house credentials thanks to the blissful synthesizer arpeggio lines and swirling chords of "It Won't Be Long". The spacey, string-drenched shuffle of "Varkala" draws a fine EP to a close.

He Is The Voice I Hear - (10:29) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: There's naturally been plenty of hype surrounding The Black Madonna's "He Is The Voice I Hear", which originally dropped on a single-sided 12" at the tail end of 2016. It's undoubtedly the fast-rising Chicagoan's best record to date, and feels like an unashamed tribute to Patrick Cowley's fine productions for disco icon Sylvester. While there are mournful notes - check the extended, beat-less piano intro -it doesn't take long to turn into a deliciously muscular, Italo-disco style chugger laden with razor-sharp strings, bubbling acid lines, and the kind of fluid piano solos that were once a hall mark of Frankie Knuckles' remixes. In other words, it's a fine contemporary disco record from one of dance music's most notable DJs of recent times.

Review: This two-track missive is a significant one for Harvey Sutherland. Not only does it mark the debut of his Clarity Recordings imprint, but also his first recorded outing with regular backing band Bermuda. Opener "Priestess" is something of an epic, with Sutherland working a tasty groove - think languid, live drums, thick synth-bass and spiraling electronics - for several minutes before unleashing some killer jazz-funk keys and Harbie Hancock style solos. In contrast, flipside "Bravado" is a much more spacey affair, with regular, sweaty drum fills and groovy live bass underpinning wild synthesizer motifs and twinkling electric piano. Both are dancefloor-ready, but warm and loose enough to please jazz dancers as much as disco heads.
