Cos BV's Sunset EP boasts four tracks that seem to be culled from the soundtrack to a long lost 80s movie. Opener "Rock To The Rhythm" is a pumped up sun-kissed synth disco argument between an over distorted kick drum and super cheery keyboard riffs, "Palms Sway In The Evening Breeze" is indeed a breezy mellow jam with shimmering Fender Rhodes ripples, swimming pool synths and atmospherics galore. "Sundown" is an edgier cut full of 808s and an air of mistrust (the drug deal scene basically) and "Speed Dial" is a menagerie of twisted and broken old soul loops. Badass!
Car Crash Set welcome Cos BV back to their catalogue this week, although the producer is only back on executive terms, while the spotlight is taken by an interesting set of remixers. His "Knife" tune is remixed and rewired by all sorts of capable bass junkies, including his and 214's excellent dub version, a bundle of bass and irate vibrations, Ezekiel's killer broken beat cut, and the warm house waves provided by the Love Bites reinterpretation. Not one to miss from both label and artist!
