DUBBED OUT PRESENTS - HATCHA & FRIENDS 23/08/14

We review Dubbed Out's 5th birthday party!
Want My Love - Metrik feat Elizabeth Troy - Hospital Records

The intro is somewhat predictable: soaring vocals, building pads, starting to feel a little too euphoric… then the drop, more of a gentle tumble into the obis of unexpected, fidgety, footwork-esque beats. Coated in the usual glorious Hospital vibe but with an equally glorious underpinning of subtle melancholy, brought by the reworked male vocal and the low end, after this little gem, thoroughly looking forward to the album. Original mix is miles better than the club version. 

Push - My Panda Shall Fly & Mau’lin - Project Mooncircle

Lovely EP of explorations in sound and ambience, starting with viscous melodic soup and building to a crescendo of introverted house music. More please.

With All Your Eyes Look - Larry Gus - DFA

One of the stand-out cuts from his ‘Years Not Living’ LP, ‘With All Your Eyes Look’ is a mesmerising piece (much like the rest of the album) that draws from a smorgasbord of influences both past and present to create a rich tapestry of driven psychedelia. Fits rather nicely around the section containing Beck, Tortoise, Can, Caribou and Dan Deacon. There are rich pickings with some diverse mixes too.

Tugboat Edits 5 - Chrissy/TZ - Tugboat Edits

Amiable character from the Chicago scene, Chrissy Murderbot (AKA Chrissy) swaps some of his notorious disco knowledge with production partner TZ for this EP of immediate, party-ready disco edits. Chopped-up, refixed and filtered, these four cuts span reproduced classics and some lesser-known gems. My personal highlights are a clever, rearranged version of the B52s’ ‘Good Stuff’, here disguised as ‘Lovely Stuff’ and a killer, killer wigged-out dub mix of Mike Mareen’s heartbreaking, Euro-disco essential ‘Dancing in the Dark’, here as the cryptic, “Dubbing in the Dark’.
