The second ep for 'Balaphonic', a cross over project produced by Danny Ward (Dubble D/Moodymanc) which fuses live instrumentation with DJ driven sensibilities to create dark and earthy grooves for the dance floor arrives on Well Cut Records and further galvanises it's sound and direction.
Its predecessor got significant chart and mix support from the likes of Jimpster, Osunlade, Detroit Swindle, Moxie, Che, Doc Martin, Charles Webster and more.
Balinese Saints is a driving, percussive heavy groove which lays the foundation for some blistering drum soloing, propelled by a hypnotic bass guitar line and piano montuno figure, the dynamic arrangement punctuated by stabs and trippy vocal hooks. A high energy jazzy dance floor burner for sure.
Mondays sets off with an earthy, dusty afro beat inspired groove. Claps and chants set the scene before trippy arpeggios are juxtaposed with ethnic, gritty intertwining guitar figures and a throbbing sub which give way to an uplifting live double bass line. The energy grows relentlessly with syntom solo figures giving a flavour of early Nigerian Disco and a nagging cowbell adds to the frenzy. An uplifting, feel good afro party track with an edge!
Rounding off the EP is Sunflowers in Dub, a deep, lush and slow building organic groove that revolves around a hypnotic loop which serves as a backdrop for the harmonica soloing of the infamous and virtuoistic Mr. Robin Sunflower, and is underpinned by some very understated and trippy Fender Rhodes. Think of sunshine, warmth, forests and beaches. One for the Balearic and Croation heads perhaps?
