About this item

Lo-fi jungle (!!!), party ready house and distorted club jams on this killer 12" from Online Conversations, highly highly anticipated from our inhouse party freak Kickin' Pigeon! Yes, you heard right - lo-fi jungle, with SZCH adding to D. Futures' "I Care" blueprint set out on Natural Sciences, ramping up the chipmunk vox, adding a saturated VHS hue and layering up the breaks as "Ana's Theme" gives us all a taste of that saccharine-flooded mayhem we first tasted back in 2016. Vancouver's taste making MPC songstress, D. Tiffany demonstrates just why she's regarded as one of the most important producers of the new school as "Hoppin' In" flies out the stacks in 5th gear - intent on wrecking havoc across any fun loving dancefloor it's given airtime on. A joyful amalgamation of booty / ghetto, Dance Mania and lo-fi attributes, its undeniably 2k18 whilst possessing a fuzzy sense of dance music nostalgia, which should ensure its enjoyment by the under 25s as much as the over 40s. SAKI's "U Make My Head Spin" keeps us locked in a lo-fi glaze as he fires up the compressors for a pumpin', scuzzed-out deep house ride. Finally, Tlim Shug's "Dream Control" sees us end the EP in a moment of synthesized serenity, somewhere between DJ Boring, Legowelt and Subjoi - again with a mid-shelf frequency load and rib-tickling 150hz kicks. A breathtakingly good EP this, featuring the celebrated sounds of RIGHT NOW. You need.
