About this item
Following their massively well-received debut release with Moroccan musician Majid Bekkas, MCR's Banana Hill return with music from slightly closer to home. Drummer, DJ & producer, not to mention early Rhythm Section signing Tom Contours joins multi-instrumentalist XOA for a collaborative 12" of deep, percussive afrocentric house grooves. With a, dare-I-say-it, sophisticated range of releases that belie his youthful good looks, Contors in one of our city's celebrated new exports. "Too Much Talking" is a cosmic dancefloor heater, with dubbed-out synths, vintage guitars, fat live bass and, as the name suggests, a talking drum that underpins the whole track. Things head a little deeper on "Express" with rolling percussion, heavy sub and subtle influences of afrobeat & jazz.
