About this item

Benjamin Smith and Paul 'Mudd' Murphy are back with a Balearic-pop gem - "The Distance". Featuring a vocal and instrumental on the A-side, and a remix on the flip by Crazy P production ace - Ron Basejam. Lyrics and vocals are by Quinn Lamont, who's captivating earthy tones playfully tease us with emotional yearning, and it's Quinn who provides a stunning jazzy guitar performance that will have you air guitaring all over the dancefloor, and which sits splendidly alongside the beautiful layers of rich electric piano and Balearic disco grooves. The remix by Ron Basejam recasts the track as an instantly affable yacht-rock-esque anthem, that will fill your hearts and have you reaching for the Campari.

Surely one of those record's that's fallen victim to unpredictable manufacturing times and therefore release schedules, this is a sumptuous summer groover, with layer upon layer of blissed out, crystalline, oceanic disco warmth and goodness. As such it's gonna have to stay in the 'cooler' for another couple of months, but wait patiently for those first glimmers of Spring and the record'll really come into its own. 


Matt says: Get this one super chilled and ready for cracking out the cooler once the temperature warms up and party season kicks off again...
