Mr Assister

Masonic Forest / Jordan

The enigmatic Mr Assister returns to his lab for BEAM's second release (over a year since the first one, which is still quite hot in my box....-Matt). Equally as shamanic, and resonating with our primal instincts, "Masonic Forest" sees a rabble of delirious bongos get blown off course then held back together by a humming, elastic band mid-bass. Intoxicating and reeking of outdoor dance parties, this is the perfect soundtrack to tribal, 'feathers'n'facepaint' (remember?!) terraces and dancefloors alike and pretty much epitomizes the term 'rainforest house' probably a year or two after I initially coined it! "Jordan" keeps us equatorial, another sweltering hot summer house jam to get truly lost in, with a similar sound palette to "Masonic Forest". Immediately giving you that injection of sweaty. balmy nights dancing under the stars; don't sleep on this fiery double-header of hot house action. Highly recommended!

Matt says: Mr Assister lays down a new standard for the 'rainforest house' blueprint. Instantly taking us back to that feathers n facepaint vibe!

Mr Assister

Izma / Arland Rain

Older and wiser almost two years on from his tabloid-smash debut on 1-800-Dinosaur, Mr Assister winds down the tempo somewhat as the inaugural release on BEAM begins its reluctant dribble out of Assistance HQ. On the A-side, 'Izma' sits firmly within the parameters of the now infamous bongo-tsunami sound, while retaining sufficiently luscious strings to tickle any remaining hearts-on-sleeves. Meanwhile, on the bleepier 'Arland Rain', things are dragged into even chuggier territories, and should 808 hi-hats seem uncharacteristically rigid, the arrival of better-late-than-never xylophone fodder ought to assist with the appeasement of the ever-ravenous tropical crowd. One of our favourite records right now!

Mastered by the eminent Matt Colton.
