Review: A simple two-tracker here from Athens Of The North in-house band East Coast Love Affair, AKA Euan Fryer and Nick Moore. 'Get Down' finds the duo collaborating with the mysterious Quiet Storm on a languid, hazy number that channels the more soulful end of 80s boogie, and that centres around a dreamy "get down, get down, get down" male vocal and a jazzy guitar lick that loops endlessly throughout. The accompanying 'Do You Feel' is a more upbeat and jaunty affair but still fairly laidback, and if anything wears its 80s boogie influences even more proudly on its sleeve.
Review: If you're looking for authentically 70s-sounding disco vibes then you'll struggle to do better, this week, than this two-tracker from Athens Of The North "house band" East Coast Love Affair - so authentic-sounding are the two tracks featured, in fact, that on first hearing this writer assumed they had to be reissues! Replete with string sweeps and percussive breakdowns, 'Shake' is a near-instrumental workout that'll make a very solid set-builder and has hints of jazz-funk around the edges, but it's the title track that stands out with its Brass Construction-like fanfares and twin male/female soul vocals.
