The man responsible for Piccadilly Records' favourite edit banger of 2009 (the madcapped disco destroyer "Together") returns after a three year hiatus with a trio of Afro-inspired anthems on his own Stupid Human label. "Obey The Chief" starts our party with Kwaito style 808s, sunkissed FM synth riffs and a top toady bassline. Groove in place, Hugh Mane cracks open the window and lets the sunshine pour in, bathing us in fx soaked vocals and golden highlife guitars - it's perfect party music for the Indian summer. We stick to the sunny side of the street as we flip the disc, swaying to the syncopated drum patterns and swooning synth swells of "The Path", a tropical dream-dancer you'll wanna hear again and again. "Eko Funk" rounds off this most excellent set, dropping the tempo, maxing the bass and chugging through some primo analog afro-funk. Falling somewhere between a Prelude wrongspeeder and a lost Imagination dub, this is a left of centre bomb for the Balearic crowd. Ave it!
Currently enjoying heavy rotation for The Idjuts, Nick The Record and Rune Lindbaek, this
Obey The Chief - You can’t go wrong
The Path: Percussive syncopated beauty and wobbly synth fun
Wake Up: Liberian afro funk with analog delights
On heavy rotation with Nick the record, The Idjut’s, Rune Linbaek Dan Tyler says : 'Bend over and Obey the Chief !' He got the Beef !'
