AB & Party Supplies' 'Blue Chips' was one of last year's finest, the sequel soon-come ('Blue Chips 2'), and this is a brilliant track from it, laced with some truly splendid shimmering harp loops as spooked and funky as Lalo Schifrin at his grittiest and AB's customarily great skills on the mic. Let 'Blue Chips 2' soundtrack your winter, I know I'm gonna.
Bouncy, squidgy dancefloor Jump Up, a la Heist is the order of the day as the first of the contributions on Co-Lab various artist compilation. SFX fit for a hyped console game are placed next to a heavy and solum church bell, along with other necessary jump up vox featuring 'the robotic male' and 'the orgasmic female groan'. This track has an element of Hazardness about it which of corse can only be a good thing.
Really like Quelle Chris, and when joined by MarvWon, FuzzScoota, HouseShoes and the inestimable production smarts of Oh No, the results are never less than fun, intriguing, smart. This is from his 'Ghost At the Finish Line' opus that I, and you, really must get round to hearing and is a frabjous funky mess of textures and thoughts delivered in true splat-of-consciousness style.
Switching between euphoric gentle pads into a gritty juxtaposition of drumstep noisiness seems and impossible feat, but it's task the duo set within their horizon. This is track seemingly made by those who measure each note with a sense of scientific precision. The cinematic intros nods to tracks grand scale which could easily see it placed in the 'stadium' bracket. The aptly named 'Aracnophilia EP' sees them work with the legendary Spyda MC for its entirety.
