Kooky & Damoon – EP2

After providing big hitters on Trash The Wax 2 & 3 as well as a damn fine debut EP, Kooky & Damoon return to the Paper fold with Niki Kand on vocals to deliver three disco licked nuggets.

There She Flies is all about the low end baby; it’s got warm & wobbly bass with a few peaks & squeaks teamed up with some Nile style guitar and classic piano stabs. Use this one to set your stall out.

We Go Dancing channels some inner Shaft riffs & Stevie style chords with a bassline that hooks you in straight away. Adding the fantastic vocal makes the whole thing destined to be played on a yacht party under the Croatian moon.

Closing things off Take Me High still has bags of groove but takes the party late night. Laser toms, strings, badass bass plus a few surprises make this one sound like the cousin of a Paradise Garage escapee.

Kooky & Damoon Free DL

The debut EP from Kooky & Damoon dropped in July and soon found its way into sets at places like this years Electric Elephant Festival in Croatia as well as the basements of Manchester & beyond!

Here Kooky has tackled Loving Me Now and drops a dark n moody bassline to sit alongside the guitar twanging from the original…some pretty haunting chords land in the breakdown but still keep things on the right side of disco sounding (just a tad darker!).

Free DL!

Kooky & Damoon – The Kooky & Damoon EP

After appearing on Trash The Wax 2, Kooky & Damoon drop their debut EP for Paper Disco and what a big badass booty shaker it is!

Loving Me Now starts things off across a section of horns, guitars & rumbling bass that will make you slug back the last of your pina colada, jump in the Quattro and head on down to the Pink Flamingo club to command a spot on the dance floor. Sleaze disco from a forgotten cop show never sounded so ace!

Good For You takes things to stage 2 of the night and right from the off its a handful of veras and a serious wiggle to the full bodied twanging bassline, hooky vox and guitar that sounds like Nile Rogers in the zone.

Remix action comes from Paper’s long lost brother Neil Diablo who goes for a classic dub on Loving Me Now. It uses less of the vocal and giving the instrumental arrangement room to shine, makes this perfect for the jocks that prefer their disco spaced out.

Loving Me Now also gets a workout from new kid on the block Dan Wainwright who covers it in microdots & stewed mushrooms for a full on psych wig out complete with acid squelch, reverb & delay drenched whooshes & swooshes. There’s enough weirdness to make you ring deed poll and change your name to Rainbow.

Hot Toddy:
“Good For You is fav of the 2. Nice mid tempo warmer upper!”
