DELICATE WASH

Delicate Wash spurn the spin cycle once again, returning for Round 4 of their edits series, delivering a fresh load of spaced-out street synths and exquisite disco toe-tappers. Four cuts of a familiar 1980's metropolitan milieu, WASH#4 provides the b-movie soundtrack to a cinematic underworld of swanky penthouse soirees and back alley brawls.

Opener "San Francisco" pairs impossibly reverbed conga with squelching bass and stretched synth leads, sounding like a lo-fi Pet Shop Boys soundtracking a 80s bluey. It follows then that "Girls!" is a wild ride through amateur boogie, vocals veering super high in the mix, synths crackling in electroid perfection and nipple height bass virtuosity keeping the pulse racing. Skip to the flip for the squirming disco-funk of "Jungle Robots", a moogy slice of swamp boogie with cinematic fx, ribbiting vocoder and Idjuts-style delay and the frazzled jazz-rock of "Brown Bunny", which comes complete with elbow patches, high waisters and weed smoke.

Whether in a mix or live set, this evocative quartet is an eloquent addition to any audiophile's storytelling toolkit.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Delicate Wash turn the Hotpoint dial to 4, hitting us with a quartet of 80s dancers, all reworked to perfection for modern floors. Sleazy disco, backstreet funk and stoned jazz-rock should provide plenty of options for turning heads and moving feet.

Delicate Wash #2

    It's fair to say their debut caused a right stir in these parts, and now the Delicate Wash massive are back with a second instalment of soothing and grooving cuts. "#2" will take you on a 80's electronic funk adventure filled with analog drum machines and sharp synth leads, filling your ears with four tracks that are fresh, perky, futuristic, and thrilling. "Exotica" opens proceedings with dexterous coastside guitar licks, aquatic marimba patterns and lush DX7 riffs, coming across like an Amiga-era floppy disc flip on seminal 80s cut "Don't Look Any Further". After a slightly abrasive industrial intro, A2 offering "Syndrome 28" soon transforms into a technotronic take on tribal electro complete with mellow jazz funk keys and warm bass riffs - essential for Hardcastle fans everywhere. Over on the B1, "The Undertaker" romps through fist pumping 80s percussion, squelching synth riffs and 8bit sequences before arriving at the discotheque in a blaze of brass and thunder. Finally, "Stand By Me" serves up sax licks, laser fire and so much pitch bend, flipping the floor out in full synth fusion fashion. Another hit!

    Patrick says: Electro-funk manoeuvres on the second load of laundry from Delicate Wash. The first release brought grown men to tears, and this follow up comes Kleenex approved. Grab it before it goes...
