Viers // 0002 / Your Body

9 Jul

viers church

Following on from Rumah’s largely acclaimed Stutter/Murmur EP, which received support from the likes of Skream, Dusky, Sei A & More. South London Party starters Church are back with another offering from new blood Viers. The A Side reflects Viers deep and atmospheric approach to his productions, with subtle elements and a weighty sub pulsating throughout the track, it’s the perfect tool to hype up an audience. The catchy hook and hefty 4/4 beat of the flip side Your Body is also sure to receive a lot of attention from all the right sources landing somewhere in between House & Techno territory. Apes & Seb Wildblood’s mix of 0002 offers a more nostalgic take on the track with a heavy focus towards the dance floor, yet managing to retain a strong sense of atmosphere throughout . Squarehead offers up a lighter hearted cut of Your Body, his House & Garage influence track is carried by a stomping baseline and ravey synth lines. The Release furthermore cements Church’s reputation as an imprint and goes some way into moulding something of a signature sound. (Church BP, 2013) Beatport here.

GoldFFinch // The Volume EP

8 Jul

goldffinch volume ep

GoldFFinch are back….back on Saigon Recordings…..back to the dancefloor. POW! 4 new tracks on an EP entitled ‘The Volume’, guess what the first track is called… yes, we don’t do clever EP names. The lead track is smashing up the airwaves/dancefloors, we do sincerely hope that no injuries have occurred due to any aggro-dance moves (we’re not liable). Support across the board from the likes of Paleman, Loefah, Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B – this supreme Belgian duo are going from strength to strength, fresh from their appearance on the US based Dirtybird label. GoldFFinch/Saigon fully endorse the use of Peacock related imagery. (Surus, 2013) Buy it here. Beatport here.

GoldFFinch // 11th Hour

1 Jul

goldffinch 11th hour

With a change in the season and the promise of balmy city sunsets on the horizon, it feels natural that dirtybird should drop a much welcomed curveball into their 2013 EP catalogue. Courtesy of Belgium born duo, GoldFFinch, the ‘11th Hour’ EP explores the label’s more implicit approach to bass, with all the richly textured, distinctively UK sounds we’ve come to expect from the pair. The EP also marks GoldFFinch’s first original dirtybird release proper, after proving their worth on the heavy hitting Players compilation and remixing French Fries’ ‘Space Alarm’ as an induction.  
   
‘11th Hour’ opens the EP with a beautifully carved intro of muted, sensual synths and a blunted percussion beat that immediately picks out a swinging, London-centric rhythm. As the distant yearn of afterhours city lights emerges, the intro melts into a fluid-yet-funky roller, a languid longing for the urban twilight hour. ‘Sultry Steel’ flirts with UK Garage foundations, as the drums skip along with knowing skill and a slinky vocal sample punctuates the fuzzy atmosphere. As the track name suggests, it’s the steel drum melody that gives the beat its memorable dance floor significance.  
   
Erring on the subtler side of late night bass, dirtybird has uncovered a veritable gem here. Enjoy!

Artifact Drafty

Here’s some fresh Artifact stuff, words from the dude himself: Drafty EP – It’s been a little while since I released any music, and whilst i’ve been busy working on my next few releases, I wanted to take this opportunity to release some music i’ve been making over the past year. This is an EP of several new tracks, as well as several that never really got placed anywhere. (Artifact SC, 2013)
