About this item
Your favourite percussion pals take aim at the peak time on Volume 5, offering some different disco with a Balearic bent.
Though the 45RPM button on the TDHQ turntable is finally fixed, these edit idiots managed to spill a spritz on the pitch control, so prepare to read this at -6.
A-side 'Slow Motion' sees the crew swing through some Canadian crates, transforming a high energy froth into sweet mid tempo syrup. Hydraulic sequences chug away to a cybernetic 4/4, lasers dance around the vocoder and a spacer woman sends us into ecstasy with an arms aloft chorus. The heads were spinning when this one teased in their radio mix, so don't miss it on wax.
There's a double feature on the flip, where TD tackle an overlooked slice of German glam, taming the tempo and turning out a totally cokey bit of disco rock. Repping expert bass grooves, euro boogie breakdowns, unexpected talk box, headband guitar riffs and a killer drum solo, this gives you that tops off at a family function feeling. The vocal version keeps it authentically off kilter, while the dub should appease peeps who think that Barrabas sounds like a deranged Rod Stewart.
Limited Press - Numbered Insert - Drum Fun Guaranteed.
Matt says: Another winner from the Talking Drums camp who dish out two courses of 5* fodder which takes on Canadian hi-nrg and Euro-rock-boogie. As always it's obscure as it is pleasing and guaranteed to light up your all nite discotheque.
