About this item
Globetrotting producer Guiddo debuts on Beats In Space Records with the Gin ‘n’ Tears EP, three tracks of Balearic bliss featuring the soulful psalm of Greek-French vocalist Georges Perin.
The record’s title track lilts like a disco 45 at 33 rpm, Perin’s croon rising higher and higher above Guiddo’s baseline funk and expert riffage channeling Nile Rodgers’ sultry stabs. “I Miss You Now” glides on the seductive sunset vibe of “Gin ‘n’ Tears,” while Perin pleads to “lose that feeling tonight” in his characteristic falsetto.
The EP’s finale, “One Last Bite,” captures the A-side’s allegiance to the Balearic beat while riding into a pop-oriented realm that fits in with the best dancefloor ballads of the past thirty years. Guiddo elevates “One Last Bite” with melodies made to soundtrack two lovers’ farewell after a summer fling on the Mediterranean coast.
Each 12” on Beats in Space Records features original artwork in considerate and serial form. Nicole Ginelli abstracts the tone palette of Gin ‘n’ Tears into a canvas of party survival tools, fittingly bright and ecstatic. The 12” packaging constructed by Will Work For Good features a removable vinyl BIS logo cling.
