CLONE ROYAL OAK

Clone's Royal Oak comes correct here with Piccadilly Records favourite Tee Mango. A versatile EP that continues the theme of the Royal Oak series. Tee Mango leaves the traditional path of 90's house music and delivers four intense tracks which skirt irresistibly between deep house sensibility and a quirky, afterparty aesthetic. Looping vocals, woozy chords, grooving basslines, jazzy keys - proper house music! Personal favourite, "Losing Control" sees a falsetto male diva vox mixed effortlessly with technoid bleeps, powerful low end and a heady, post-peak mood that'll suit the hours from 3AM - 6AA perfectly. "Via Carlos" sees an early Floating Points vibe (crica "Vacuum" EP 2009) honed to perfection while "Confused" and "Going Wrong" should have you wiggling that ass till the sun comes up - pure afterparty grooves for the up-all-nite-cru. Mega.

Clone Royal Oak hit us with a timely repress of one 2011's hottest records from Norse duo Genius Of Time. The original pressing disappeared in a flash and has hovered around the £30 mark on discogs ever since so a nice fresh repress seems heaven sent. The fact this record has aged perfectly probably comes down to the fact the duo nailed a timeless house vibe across these three tracks, keeping things deep, jazzy and laid back. Opening cut "Drifting Back" begins life as a conga led disco loop and gradually opens out into a sublime groove textured with warm pads and ornate rhodes. It could have come direct from the Move D playbook, and by the time the vocal sample comes into play, you'll be moved to tears. Flip the disc for the track that everyone wanted in their sets, Genius Of Time's magnificent, "Million Dollar Bill" tampering "Houston We Have A Problem". This house head nodder makes great use of Whitney's acapella over a rolling drum loop, giving you plenty of time to tease the crowd before you unleash THAT bassline. Looking back, it seems like such a simple idea, taking the most groovy pop record in years and wrapping lush deep house pads around it, but it still sounds totally flawless to this day. Huge! To close proceedings in timely fashion, our genii deliver the celestial bliss of the broken beat flecked "Juxtapose", which snakes its way to the floor to the heavenly sounds of harp and strings.
