About this item

It’s been exactly a year since the 6th Borough boys emerged from their hiatus to bring us the "Rhythm & Truth EP". This killer three tracker picked up where they left off and showed us that fans of deep, dusty, dubbed-out disco were as hungry as ever for new 6BP material and went on to garner praise from the likes of Jamie 3:26, Luke Solomun, Dam Swindle, Young Pulse and the Faith crew to name a few. Here on their follow up we’re treated to more of the good stuff and sees Craig Smith and Graeme ‘Revenge’ Clark whipping up four new cuts spanning speaker-wobbling sub-aquatic grooves and stripped back deep house.

"One Way" sets the tone with a subtle yet infectious percussive workout which is one of those mood setting tools which looks set to become a lot of DJ’s secret weapons this summer. Filtering strings and tweaked synths add that classic Chicago energy which won’t fail to get you locked into it’s groove. "Spare Change" treads a similar path but goes heavier on the echoing synth stabs and deep string pads proving that when the rhythm is rolling this nicely just let it roll.

Flip over for "Backlash" which takes us deeper still with lush chords and driving square wave bassline taking center stage supported by an unrelenting kick drum which helps to keep an intensity throughout the arrangement. Closing out the EP we have "The Other", which sees 6BP dropping the BPM’s to create a low-slung slice of deep, underground house perfection.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Loopy, concentric house goodness from one of the best to do it! Since 2008, Edinburgh's Craig Smith & The Revenge have carved out their own unique blend of disco and funk-influenced house music. Not always rushing the tempos, offering up subtle but addictive grooves which are specifically of the duo's own hand. Just short of it's landmark 100th release, and also occupying a similar fifteen year tenure, Jimpster's Delusions Of Grandeur release the latest clutch of jams from this prominent pair.
