The next instalment of Rogue Cat Sounds' 'Mind Fair presents%u2026' series has been unfurled and takes a step in a different direction from their first offering, the well received disco fur ball 'Reach the Stars', most notably with the addition of a vocal and in style it has weaved out of the psyche-disco realms and fallen more so into a sparse slo-mo new-beat sound laden with lo-fi synth drum machines,a pestering moog bass line and wah guitar licks with not much more else but a sprinkle of percussion and some synth strings.
So you're sold already? Ok, so that doesn't sound so hot on paper but the simple infectious groove and killer vocal hook just add together to make this insanely and relentlessly catchy. What's more, it all came together purely by chance in a recording session not initially intended to yield anything remotely on the electronic tip but as an opportunity to get a collection a personal songs recorded by a talented singer and songstress Lauren Faulkner whose originally works are earthy, dark and haunting (and beautiful I must add) but not anything like this However, a simple intrigue into the Moog synthesizer that was sat in the corner of the room, followed by a little bit of messing with some of the flashy knobs and within an hour Lauren had not only concocted her first synth-line, she'd also plucked out of nowhere a sublime vocal hook.
A little delayed guitar hook was added, a few noises here and there but the result was instant and had everyone involved dancing for what seemed like minutes but was actually as it turned out closer to hours and in some very unusual ways!
Nothing much to add other than, oh yes nearly forgot, an absolute killer remix courtesy of The Rhythm Odyssey. He ups the tempo and moulds one of his filthy house creations nice!,add this then to the original instrumental version and the short but sweet Rhythm Odyssey dub reprise and you've something a little special to get you're claws into, puurrrrrr-fect.
Some Rogue feedback..
The Rhythm Odyssey mix is very sexy like Shalor or Jomanda
