About this item

Bahnsteig 23 offshoot Duca Bianco deliver not one but two 7" smashers this week, as Berlin digger Tom Bolas follows hot on Cherrystones' heels. As with Bahnsteig 23, the vibe is obscure, unconventional and impossible to resist. Tom's outing begins with Kangham funk, a slow and syrupy bit of Korean synth pop, uncovered from the 80s and reworked with the thick and slick bass groove at the forefront. Optimistic pop vocals and a slightly weird chord progression? Sounds undeniably Balearic to me. On the flipside Tom treats us to Senopati Punk, a bright and sparkling foreign language (I'm guessing South East Asia, but could be waaaaay off) version of Mick n Keef's "Under My Thumb" in a similar vein to Devo's "Satisfaction".
