PEACH DISCS

Peach Discs hits 20 releases, they celebrate with an EP from Saoirse, who delivers five techy rollers in her signature tough but sensual style.

In her own words: 'Vampire Heart and Catfished were written in the midst of lockdown - I was spending so much time in the studio (even sleeping there some nights) and was really able to explore different sounds and vibes. Vampire Heart still gives me a strange feeling as it was written the day the government announced that we had passed the peak of Covid and might be able to go outside again, something I tried to convey with the pads and break - that positive feeling of opening up. Conversely, Catfished was written during Covid’s peak - it felt like we were on this haunting loop that just kept going round and round, not knowing when it would end.

Mangomouse and Heated Cloud were written more recently and tie into what I’m calling “my tribal era.” I was a drummer for years but put the sticks and djembe down once I found electronic music… this is a path I think I’ll keep following as the rhythm comes naturally to me.'

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Came for the loud and wobbly "Mangomouse" terrace trembler, bound to make even the stiffest torsos quiver. Stayed for the minimalist fist-pumper "Driver" and cried with delight at the bassline groover, "Catfished". Saoirse giving the Circoloco massive plenty to devour this summer.

The first Peach Discs release of 2024 comes from the Cloudsteppers dream team of Dan Only and returning label favourite Ciel. The increasingly prolific Toronto-based duo have blessed us with four tracks of floor-focused, 4x4 garage tunes drenched in their singular melodic sensibilities.

In their own words: 'For our second record as Cloudsteppers, we went back into the studio with the intent of making functional garage tunes aimed at the dancefloor. Leaning into what created the distinct sound of our first record, we relied on Ciel’s Korg ESX-1 and Dan Only’s MPC 2000XL to lay down the foundations of each of these tunes. Skippy and bass-heavy, these 4 tracks are the result of our UK-leaning sonic experiments. Whether it’s the bubbling bass of Aqua Hotel, the tech-leaning grooves of Control ft. Eden Samara, the M1 organ in Duckstep, or the skippy drums of TDG, this is Cloudsteppers' twist on UKG.'

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves – hope you like the record.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Squelchy in parts, pumping in others; mutant house and techy garage tackle here from Cloudsteppers. Certainly has that bright n breezy Toronto sound wrapped up nicely.
