A new 7" double header from Balearic-boogie mainstay, A Vision Of Panorama. A truly diverse artist, whose work graces a number of different labels; his work for Star Creature has always been the perfect marriage of mellow, summery synth work and rugged boogie beats.
"Piano Sunset" epitomizes this ethos beautifully, with vintage drum boxes firing off some familiar rhythms whilst an array of wooden electric bass, sparkly keys and meandering piano notes create a dazzling vista of late afternoon enjoyment. A clean, digital signal path with nods to FM synthesis give this track high definition contours and a bright shine.
"Lost In Palms" sees the producer deliver a nicely swung, late night house jam. Build around a splendid house beat comprised of galloping congas, twatting hi-hats and classic 909 snares with plenty of shuffle; organ stabs and sparkling keyboard licks accompany a wobbly synthline and deep bass notes. Imagine if Kerri Chandler had grown up on the Italian Riviera and you're halfway there...
Top stuff as always from Star Creature and AVOP.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says:
Star Creature heat from AVOP. "Piano Sunset" rocks that Zanzibar proto-house vibe brilliantly and is a must for fans of Mark Seven's Parkway series. On the flip, a swung late night house jam that has Kerri Chandler's DNA coursing through its veins.
