The Walls Of Love

Walls Of Love

Another new series from one of the most prolific of southern-based house camps, Banoffee Pies Records. The new imprint for miscellaneous sounds BPMISC01 airing the newly A&R'd band, The Walls Of Love with their self titled 10" EP. "Walls Of Love" channels that post-punk, disco-not-disco spirit beautifully, nodding to pioneers A Certain Ration & Gang Of Four as it swaggers through the nightclub. "Maxim's Choir" sees rampant saxophone joined by celestial keyboard work and syncopated jazz kit for a stylish direction with proggy notes that's reminiscent of jam bands from both late 70s New York and mid 90s Chicago. Excellent new direction from the Bristol firm.

After conquering the dance floor fringe via a whole load of offshoots, Banoffee Pies return to their original label for another varied EP of contemporary club music. Toma Kami opens the A1 with the titular "Rivershells", a slowly erupting swirl of percussion idents and progressive drums - if you're digging on the breaks revival, this K&D style killer will flip your lid. Pablo Marco comes correct on the A2 with his second Banoffee offering, following his breakbeat heater on the Black Label Series with a pulsating piece of electro. Blackened drum hits, murmuring vocals and sci-fi synth riffs rule the roost on “All About”, coming together to take the dancefloor to an alternate dimension. The B1 comes from Liem & Eddie Ness, whose split EP of analog acid with ac$ was enough to warrant a return appearance. This time round the duo head deep with “Fujiyama”, a leftfield cut somewhere between the hypnotic textures of STL, detailed house of Okain and unconventional approach of Herron. New signing K-Lone follws up some excellent work on Bristol imprint Wisdom Teeth, closing the set with the spherical downtempo of "Clouds". 


Sil says: Ravy old school vibes on Toma Kami's Rivershells. Obscure technoid sounds with cool radio sample courtesy of Pablo Marco; deep minimalistic synth laden number by Liem & Eddie Ness, and a gorgeous broken beat cum deep house exercise to end it all up. As always, a stunner from the always reliable Banoffee Pies. Guaranteed quality sounds. Grab it!

Banoffee Pies Records return to their original white label format for another limited EP: BP003. The Bristol label delivery the good once more with a solid selection of housey goodness. Adam Stromstedt & Art Alfie's "Drum Off" heavily samples a drum solo from the blockbuster film of 2015 Whiplash and is one of those typical Banoffee style basement bumpers, full of organic instrumentation tweaked just that little bit extra, and with a lush piano sequence to boot. Jaffa Surfas "Souled Out" provides a kinetic house effort, working the filters and kill switches with aplomb as a clickity MPC rhythm rides on top. Playful, infectious house music just the way we like it. To end, the recently unearthed "Ko Bad" undergoes a mild edit from Hansel! and is a tastefully chopped and arranged collage of jazz samples, brush drums and rolling breakbeat. As ever, super sexy, understated and highly grooving stuff here from the BP crew. Coming highly recommended from us folks at PR. TIP.
