Crooked Man returns to Bitter End with an "Emotional Copy Only" - a double header of powerful nightclub movements. "Echo Loves Narcissus - Part 1" is the opening salvo in a sonic saga across four parts, marrying, as it does irresistibly uplifting chords and vocal ad-libs to a bassline so thick it'll rattle the windows right out of your ride and knock the tiles straight off the walls of your cerebral restroom. Once you've adequately composed yourselves, we invite you to the 11 minute monster which is "Get The Love" on the flip. This recalls the brief but genre defying 90s jams from Mundo Muzique's Revelation project: synth assisted house-nosis, buoyed by the mantric voice imploration to accept higher states of carnality atop an immersive blanket of propulsive rhythms. "Get The Love" throbs and crackles with the immense electricity contained within, a juddering outboard barrage of well sequenced synths accompanying a truly tasty electro-house beat and smooth vocal parts. A truly breathtaking and destined to be massive double tracker from Bitter End. Most recommended!
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Storming stuff here from the Crooked Man alter-ego. Two different animals, from the throbbing low-end hypnosis of the A-side, to the electronic, robo-funk of side B. Ace.
