ABOUT THIS ITEM
After their stunning debut, 'Slum Room' by Rob Shields, was picked up by the likes of Maya Jane Coles for her Resident Advisor podcast, and Crosstown Rebel Jozif for his Balance compilation, boutique label Petit Records return with a tribute to Frank Ocean, the postmodern neo-soul don, and Prince heir apparent.
Newest signing and Brooklyn young gun, Fenbred (aka Benjamin Gardner), follows up his sizzling debut for the label (Get Enuff - an infectious edit of a 90s anthem) with his sophomore 12” release, 'Pyramids', a brilliant 2013 house interpretation of the electro-soul epic.
The searing vocal harmonies by Detroit songster Jay Alexzander, are weaved into a hypnotic slice of hot New York house, as Fenbred takes us straight to the terrace for five glorious minutes of swinging cosmic vibes, nu-wave bleeps, whiplash drums and heavenly vocal loops. Climaxing in a glorious drop, we have ourselves a punchy peak time gem, perfect for sunrise or sunset. Already charted by the likes of El_Txef_A, Jozif, Climbers and Cuplrit honcho Andrei Droog, this tune is well on its way to being a summer scorcher.
On the flip, 'Feel Something' is a homage to vintage piano house and late 90s UK garage, this euphoric workout of beefy, hybrid-house is strictly for the floor, as pitched up vocals pulse against a backdrop of heavyweight percussion and groovy vocal ticks.
