New from the prolific Slime imprint comes a fresh Parisian producer by the name of Voice Hands Machine with the ‘Cold Jam’ EP. This polished and swanky pop track is subject to bass heavy juke and deep house reworks from Jack The Hustler & mad:AM respectively. We fully expect all three tracks to become regular players so take our recommendation and cop it. You can grab this from Juno exclusively from the 21st.
The tone is ultra futuristic whilst conjuring up a palpable sense of nostalgia. Vausz depicts a future kindred to the gritty and dark Sci-Fi flicks of the 1970’s and 80’s.
Modulated lo-fi sampling and an array of classic synths and dub effects are put to extremely good use, the familiar palette subject to a whole heap of inspiration and innovation. We are teleported to a myriad of musical worlds; Club chords are spliced with Hip Hop breaks on the laid back ‘Nomurai’, whereas reggae dub vibes are subject to a sudden inexplicable metamorphosis in the schizophrenic ‘Thoughtforms’.
With influences ranging from dub, dubstep, acid, hip hop, reggae, deep house and techno, tracks also vary greatly in length – the briefest clocking one and a half minutes and the longest stretching out over ten. Just another example of how Vausz likes to do things differently. ‘Bosozoku’ is packed with musicality and innovation with many of the tracks have more than one song to sing.
This is an extremely well composed and balanced release that tells its story in vivid colour and detail. Well deserving the props, we are giving this one our solid RBP seal of approval. We think you should too. Available from 3rd December.
Featured on the show this week is a juicy dancefloor worthy slice of electro moombathon from Melton Mowbray’s Geek Boy – and we thought all they made was pork pies!!
