Review: Chris Robinson AKA Ruff Diamond's Manchester-based SupaEarth label bring us new rubs of this EP from Cuz Electric, the UK-based duo of Rich Hall and Megan Jones. First up, Spanish disco don Rayko puts a typically Italo/cosmic-flavoured twist on 'Brenda', while 'Set Yourself Free', as remixed by Danny Kane, is a slow-building, warm-up friendly kinda cut that tops a hefty walking b-line with a sparse female vocal snip. You then get two takes on the title track courtesy of the label boss himself, the Ruff Diamond Remix being a fairly chunky, straight-up boogie affair while his Heatmaker Guitar Dub adds... well, take a wild guess!
Review: After releases on the likes of Paper Disco, Particle Zoo and Midnight Riot, Rich Hall and Megan Jones come to Manchester's Supaearth with three slices of sumptuous, slinky nu-disco. 'Set Yourself Free' has a full female vocal, African chants and a dreamy, Stonebridge-esque feel, 'What You Want' starts out sounding quite electronic but soon drops down into something more soothing and soulful, and then 'Brenda' closes out the EP on a chunkier, more stripped-back note but still finds room for some euphoric hands-in-the-air piano moments. A classy EP that wears its influences proudly on its sleeve.
