2 Billion Beats – Meanders EP
As Phil Lynott once sang, ‘The Boys Are Back In Town’ and indeed they are, as 2 Billion Beats jump back in the Paper saddle.
Three brand new cuts of analogue electronic brilliance make up the Meanders EP and its a true return to form.
Beats of No Nation puts Fela through the disco machine for a lazy chug number. It has a tribal build that gives way to an acid B-line alongside a distorted vocal and big chord stabs to make this a solid ALFOS box ticker.
Empty Boulevard has plenty of cosmic arp action and synth stabs to lift it into peak E time tackle before lush piano chords mellow things out. And don’t forget the disco strings.
Down The Docks is the dance floor weapon on this package. Heavy bass jumps around with raspy lead lines and clattering percussion to give it a proper low slung flavour…and the drop detonates!
Pete Herbert: “Excellent as usual!”
Daco: “Loving the disco theme running throughout this release. ‘Beats of No Nation’ is the stand-out track with ‘Empty Boulevard’s euphoric vibes coming in a close 2nd. Superb!”
Robot 84: “Great release , all three tracks really strong, Beats Of No Nation is killer love it…”
Pathaan: “Loving all 3 tracks ! Empty Boulevard hits the spot today, no doubt the other will another day”
