STIMULATOR JONES

Stimulator Jones is a new addition to the Star Creature roster, and from the looks of this debut EP; seeks to inject a touch of classic deep house flavours into the mainly boogie-leaning label. "Night Walk" has all the hallmarks of a vintage Mr. Fingers number - walking wooden bass, gentle congas, enveloping strings and moody feels propelled by a mid tempo 4/4 drum pattern. "Precious" ups the swing and shuffle and feels like a lost Frankie Knuckles / Joe Smooth anthem - with a bassline that's gonna tickle the arse of any club goer and a gloriously emotive chorus - this is the one my people!!!

Flip and the NY / Chicago vibe continues with the acid box jam "Strive To Survive" - a bold statement but easily comparable to some of the best bits from Phuture, Marshall Jefferson, Larry Heard et all. Dazzling keys, heavenly strings, well molested 303, infectious jack beats - this baby's got it all. "Moon" concludes this essential 12" riding the NJ / NYC flavours - swung woodblocks and bumpety bass recalling the genius of Kerry Chandler or Todd Terry with a moody Rhodes giving it a suitably deep, beatdown fragrance.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Super chill syncopated beats and lo-fi instrumental hip-hop business here from Stimulator Jones, swinging between glitchy cut-up scratches and scattered MPC swing. It's a brilliantly psychedelic and brilliantly constructed set of gems.

    Stimulator Jones’ music never draws on just one place or time, instead dipping in and out of classic R&B / Soul styles from the 1970s and 1980s to the present day. On his debut album, ‘Exotic Worlds And Masterful Treasures’, Stimulator Jones’ elastic voice and instrumental grooves evoke the heady feel of R&B favourites like Rick James, K-Ci & JoJo and The Gap Band. For fans of Jamie Lidell, Mndsgn, Dam-Funk, Mayer Hawthorne. Artwork by Dewey Saunders (Anderson .Paak, OWSLA).
