NORMALS WELCOME

Montreal-based outdoor enthusiast Unknown Mobile offers up his debut on Normals Welcome with this 12" full of gentle hand drums and wavy melodies. Percussion guides the way through levels of airy pads and catchy synth lines on three solo cuts. His dancefloor sensibilities then interlock with Vancouver's amiable Big Zen for a spaced-out but dancefloor focused, collaborative track on the B side. If you've a penchant for the sublime and cerebral side of house music then this release is for you! Recommended.




STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Really strong collection of new house grooves. Rich with esoteric leanings and a rainforest friendly palette; for the dancers and dreamers alike!

Tuff Sherm (also known for his work as Dro Carey) is one of the mainstays of the techno section here at Piccadilly, with releases on The Trilogy Tapes, Berceuse Heroique and Opal Tapes. Hiss style, often arresting, challenges what's usually expected from the techno genre; coating his tough, jarring rhythms with sugary sweet pads or infectious vocal hooks. This EP for Normals Welcome handily showcases the various faces of Tuff Sherm; starting with the relaxed, string-led "Fondren & Denison" - wrapping his textured rhythms around a string stab pattern which UR would be proud of, thickening out the mix with rich piano chords and rib-tickling kick drums. "Method Man" rolls out gated slab bass across a sloppy house groove; making for a functional body mover that should keep the daytime buzz going steady. Flip and Sherm's twangy, discordant acid converges on the disc, sharp melodic shards cutting through the fug on "Squire's Skull". Finally, "Waldron Mug" deploys some fresh sounding tribal techno, complete with growling leads, mangled robo-vox and metallic, industrious washes. All in all a futureproof and highly enjoyable trip from our man Tuff Sherm.
