About this item

Edit upstarts and dancefloor destroyers Black Bones employ their finely tuned metal detector and set out on another excavation here with the sixth edition of their must have series. There's not a mm of precious vinyl wasted here as we get another indispensible 4-tracker boasting a sleazed-out 80's throbber, a percussive Disco lost classic & some primo, smeared mascara stompers evoking Boccaccio & Blitz excess."Yearning To Fly" opens the set with pulsating bass, acid squelch and echo-laced vocals tailor made to trip you out. Chuck in a bit of accordion and this is about as New Beat as it gets. Next up, "Eejit Safari" gets stuck into some Latino-disco breaks with echo and reverse, finally flexing our feet with a suitably limber bassline. Turned up to 11 with carnival noises and dub fx, this sounds like a vintage Idjuts outing, which is always a good thing in my book. Flip the disc and feel the synth funk power of "Painting By Rumours", an impossibly chugging 80s OG with popcorn motifs, sleazy female vocals and a killer Arabesque synthline. Finally "For Pete's Sake" sallies forth with wild slap bass, galloping percussion and loads of angular new wave energy, powering the party late into the next day.


Patrick says: The Black Bones team are back, digging up another quartet of idiosyncratic OGs to transform into edit monsters. Aside from the whacked out disco dub of "Eejit Safarai" (think Noid), the flavour to savour is supercharged synth. New Beat meets New Wave on the contemporary dancefloor - highly recommended.
