Ben ‘Flash Atkins’ Davis and Tom ‘2 Billion Beats’ Lonsborough have teamed up for a project that goes deep down to the depths of tripped out house music.
The Day has a rolling acid sub bass and haunting vocal sample that brings the soul. Horns spar with percussion, bongoes, synths and Rhodes as the broken beats thump on the one.
Big Chief keeps the vibe techy and slo-mo as a 303 riff tweeks over the sub. A vocal chant and synth drive things along as the beat gets baggier and the build is on. Big Chief of the title brings his Mardi Gras chant to the break, then the Happy Mondays are channeled by way of Fabric as strings bring all the elements back together.
Moon of Endor is based around a chunky film sample, which the nerds among us should be able to work out from the title. Its a return of slo-mo tribal acid business by way of the jungle with synth chords saving it from the dark side and its a skywalk to the stars.
