With a little production help from neighbouring Italo-disco compadre Rodion, Bottin drops this sharp, two-track single for long-supporting UK nu-disco label, Bearfunk. Keeping a mood that’s positively upbeat, ‘Parody’ shuffles along to a particularly rippling, analogue disco groove with neatly cascading arpeggios and shimmering fx. On the flipside, ‘Progresso’ rolls out a tracky, proto-house tune with some biting, ‘punk-funk’ snares. Monster.
Beautiful music from Phil Tangent and Steo, rolling liquid with soft and mesmerising vocals. Fast paced drums, with soft pads and a gloriously radiant bassline. This is music to feed the soul.
Weatherall flips brother Noel’s latest single with the High Flying Birds into a tense, building and hypnotix fix for the death disco.
You can precisely hear his old school influences pouring out into this EP, this is jungle with a real classy vibe. The bass is slow, intensely deep and beautifully mellowing, while the drums are crisp and stunningly vibrant against the rest of the track. Understated layers of echoing percussion and floating chords give this track an ethereal elegance which balances out a piece which would otherwise be on the heavy and dark side.
