About this item

The mighty voodoo masters Black Bones put the third line in their disco pentagram this week, as another back-breaking digging session has unearthed some sacred remains, primed for modern dancefloor re-animation! The set opens with the psychedelic squelch and symphonic strings of "Love Sick", a pounding peak time disco bomb topped with wild moog lines (a la Debbie Jacob's "High On Your Love"), sultry female vox and a rhythm section that just rolls on and on. Next up, "Desert Flower" takes a subby, dubby approach to the polyrhythmic fourth world house sound, providing plenty of esoteric instrumentation and echoes of Funny Bones. Flip it for the big and beefy 80's maxi-mix stylings of "She Should Know (Dub 3)" a properly Balearic dancefloor bomb, that sounds like a vintage FK mix of Willie Colon or something off a Hysteric 12". Lastly the dubwise depth charge "Lion Of Judah" connects with the land of Jah to give Matt Ward a reason to shout 'CHALICE'! This is limited hand stamped 12" tackle that is certain to fly.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Black Bones return with a little rattle and clatter for the voodoo people out there, summoning up their best 12" yet (I reckon). "Love Sick" is the kind of A-grade edit action Dr Dunks used to hand to Harvey for peak time dancefloor demolition, "Desert Flower" is entheogenic house exotica of the highest order and the dubby diversions on the B-side offer proto house and break-ish brilliance. Buy on sight!
