Exotic Shapes

Monologues Records
Kristy Harper's debut EP on Monologues (and anywhere, in fact) could indeed encourage exotic shapes, if handled correctly. A tale of two styles, there's both wild disco abandon and deep, girthy house here. 'Uncle Jungle' is a rolling disco extravaganza, whipping a hook from Gladys Knight, while '1955' has the distant echoes of Roulé's classic filter fury. Title track 'Exotic Shapes' goes deep with surging pads and some mild acid, where 'Sterk's low-slung loop and sub-aqua chords demand a low ceiling and a red light.
