About this item

It's fair to say their debut caused a right stir in these parts, and now the Delicate Wash massive are back with a second instalment of soothing and grooving cuts. "#2" will take you on a 80's electronic funk adventure filled with analog drum machines and sharp synth leads, filling your ears with four tracks that are fresh, perky, futuristic, and thrilling. "Exotica" opens proceedings with dexterous coastside guitar licks, aquatic marimba patterns and lush DX7 riffs, coming across like an Amiga-era floppy disc flip on seminal 80s cut "Don't Look Any Further". After a slightly abrasive industrial intro, A2 offering "Syndrome 28" soon transforms into a technotronic take on tribal electro complete with mellow jazz funk keys and warm bass riffs - essential for Hardcastle fans everywhere. Over on the B1, "The Undertaker" romps through fist pumping 80s percussion, squelching synth riffs and 8bit sequences before arriving at the discotheque in a blaze of brass and thunder. Finally, "Stand By Me" serves up sax licks, laser fire and so much pitch bend, flipping the floor out in full synth fusion fashion. Another hit!
