Quiet Force

Listen To The Music

About this item

More stuff from Ben & Dean's exquisite Rogue Cat squadron. Now delving into reissues and excavations via their ReSounds branch, this is the second record to receive attention and treatment from these new disco mavericks.

Quiet Force's "Listen To The Music" is a mid-pyramid Balearic nugget. Owned by most of the third tier, but still fetching upwards of a ton via trading markets, it's the domain of Balearic scribes and soldiers out of reach of the meagre peasantry and unwashed.

Coming here, backed with two remixes, the original is a superbly evocative slice of Italian balearia - slow in pace but with a maxed out, post-coital glow that lends itself to white loungers draped across sandy beaches awash with cocktail-wielding patrons.

Straus & Pask flip the mood to an electro-disco fuelled drug chugger laced with 303s, vintage synths and primitive sampling that's defo gonna work early doors in the club.

Apiento & Tepper drop the second remix: slightly shuddering with some well deployed noise gates while a vintage, late 80s electro-soul beat fuels the motion as a whole manner of expansive melodies, vox and pad sweeps elevate our soul.

Dean and Ben are also responsible for the Rotation Soundsystem - a Klipschorn-powered, mobile party that counts stately homes, country gardens and subterranean basements amongst its choice spots of revelry. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Rogue Cat here with some well-dug Balearic gold, galvanized with some modern alchemistry to great affect. I'm sold.
