About this item

Sweden's Mr. Tophat has this unique and faultless grasp of house music that means within the first few bars you're fully aware it's him behind the beats. "Ketamine Boogie" is no exception; creeping in with that subtle, low-volume master which makes you reach for the gains just before it drops into a full-frequency, speaker-tweaking cut. Utilizing a rollin' b-line, squelchy stabs and great spoken word interplay, he's crafted a quintessentially Tophat groove that simmers and broils the dancefloor into a thick aural soup. Mycket br!

On the flip the formular is extended to included some exotic sample sources, twisted and filtered into the concentric madness we associate with this Scando-superstar. Another cleverly placed spoken vox, mangled string swirls and expert EQ'ing complete the package. Absolutely fucking storming! You need this now! 


Patrick says: Matt, Sil and I fell in love with Mr. Tophat thanks to the entirely essential Karlovak releases, and when I slapped this on the Piccadilly player yesterday we all lost our minds. Filtered disco, nudged towards DC-10 tech house, but with a knowing manipulation of vocals and a pretty amazing approximation of what music sounds like when you're slipping into a k-hole.
