Review: Scuba – Three Sided Shape / Latch Rmx (TRI002)

Scuba expounds on this years ‘Triangulation’ release with a forthcoming 12″ on his own HotFlush label.

Side A of the release is ‘Three Sided Shape,’ originally released as the third track of ‘Triangulation.’ A deeply melodic tune featuring a slowly sweeping atmosphere over filtered drums before dropping into hefty and ringed-out kick that marks what is easily one of my favorite drops of the year. Marked with dense vocal layers and panning rhythmic effects. As to be expected by anything coming from Scuba’s studio, ‘Three Sided Shape’ pays strict attention to detail creating a tune that is deep both for the soundsystem and the psyché alike.

The flip side of the release sees a remix of ‘Latch’, the preceding tune to ‘Three Sided Shape’ on the ‘Triangulation’ release. Scuba has tapped the efforts of Aus Music label head Will Saul, and house/techno producer Mike Monday who describes his sound as ‘a bit like Prince getting drunk with Mr Scruff in Royksopps house.’ While devoid of Prince’s trademark blistering guitar speed, Saul and Monday combine to give ‘Latch’ a fresh rework, preserving the smooth pads that marked the selection’s ambience while reworking the percussion and arrangement to give the tune an upbeat house vibe one expects from the Aus Music family of releases. A completely new aesthetic is given to the track, while still feeling distant at times like the original, the strong emphasis on booming house percussion here keep the track high-energy throughout the entire track.

Markedly less minimal than what most critics give credit for, this release re-emphasizes the producer’s current explorations of melody in modern bass music under his the ‘Scuba’ moniker. This release is slated for release both vinyl and digital on Sept 27.

Review: Dubbel Dutch – Throwback EP (POS016)

Palms Out Sound presents their sixteenth release coming from Dubbel Dutch (Austin TX, Myspace, Soundcloud) titled the Throwback EP.  Futuristic house music as demonstrated by the surreal cover art with three tracks that are all A-sides. I thought I published this but just found it in my drafts so better late than never, gonna be a double Dubbel Dutch day..

The title track “Throwback” is some finely crafted US funky with cut up vocals riding over trademark funky snares.  Look out for the cowbells.  Upon first hearing the second cut “Deep Underground” I was instantly mesmerized and probably rewound it about ten times in the mix I was listening to.  I’ve long thought that breakdowns are a way to measure the production level of a track and the build in Deep Underground is one of the best I’ve heard in 2010.  Personal favorite on the release easily.  Last up is “Fool In You,” an 8-bit mutant house tune that sounds like a remix of a long lost NES soundtrack.  All three have infectious grooves that I’ve witnessed send dances into a frenzy multiple times – get this in your life, and then on your dancefloor.
