2 Billion Beats – Musica Alfresco EP
1 The Moodymann
2 Secret Sub Disco
Here is the debut EP from Manchester producers Tom Lonsborough and Col Hamilton, known as 2 Billion Beats with the Musics Alfresco EP.
Things kick things off with the uptempo ‘The Moodymann’, a funk fuelled cut of bottom heavy laden disco house. Retro synth bass with an acidic twist, rolling house rhythms and keys create a melodic yet dancefloor orientated vibe and a slightly old school feel.
Next up, ‘Secret Sub Disco’ journeys into more laid back disco territory with layers of melody washing over bubbling bass and relaxed rhythms to create a decidedly chilled vibe with some added in some acidic arpeggiated lines.
Finally IS ‘Lunar’, a deep and delightful slice of balaeric tinged house built around bass stabs, breaks and a rolling Rhodes key loop.
