About this item

Banoffee Pies continue their totally unrelenting attack on our record shelves and boxes as they roll out another weekly steamer! How Du creates 'deep garage with a minimal spin and a broken beat format' and across nine (yes 9!) tracks we're treated to a full showcase of his skills.

What immediately jumps out at you, listening to the LP, is How Du's beat programming skills - up there with the crème of hip-hop as he tends to his MPC with meticulous efficiency. Next you'll probably clock his expert sound design - tearing atmospheres out of white noise and creating moods and colour through reversed samples and mangled patches. "Testing" finds the producer perfectly in tune with the dancefloor as beautifully compressed kicks n snares permeate through a truly dreamy garage hue; tailor made for loosing yourself in Summer heat and day-long dances. There's something special afoot here folks - subtle, textured, highly detailed sonic pictures from a visionary artist working with just the right tools. Nothing superfluous, every sound sympathetic, balanced and composed. Another release in this week that demonstrates that holiday season has truly landed across the dance music multiverse. Yippeee! 

STAFF COMMENTS
