About this item
After the uneventful resolution of a labour dispute at Assistance HQ, the resident pencil-pushers turn their tempo dial to a leisurely 105bpm, at long last serving up lukewarm plates of BEAM-03 to the more sluggish peak-time massive. In 'Mambala', the now-obligatory bongo jostles with squelchy synths, whilst echoed claps and ominous bells should see even the most hesitant rabbit dragged down the hole. 'Bebny' experiments with low pH levels, metallic clutter, and some surprise horn cameos.
Sil says: According to me this monster 12" is the best that has happened to the dance section of Piccadilly Records this week. It was played on the shop stereo and I jumped off the stool about 30 seconds into the A side to enquire about it. What a beast. This is timeless. Not too slow or fast, just at the right speed of chuggy, ravey and with a healthy dose of bass and oddness. This label does not give up. Quality all around. Beam me up all the way!
