Image: 1601828 CB Records and Mophono’s Halftone Society is proud to announce
the first single from their new offshoot. Dubbed (the) “Halftone
Society Rhythm Section”, it features some of the Bay Area’s most
talented live instrumentalists. The project is a refreshing vocalbased
departure from Mophono’s usual curiously obscure offerings,
as it reimagines two eighties dance floor DJ classics “Don’t Look Any
Further” by Dennis Edwards and “Caribbean Queen” by Billy Ocean.
The demand for this music became very apparent when Mophono’s
“Cut Form Creator Dub” of “Caribbean Queen” was recently featured
on the popular bay area compilation “off the beaten tracks”. On
this new single,“The Halftone Society Rhythm Section” aims to pair
the infectious sheen of eighties boogie with an inviting minimalism
reminiscent of seventies funk standards. Young Aundee’s vocals
channel a pop landscape full of rebellious souls, bankrupt lives and
crumbling nations.
The HSRS’s unpredictable approach to the A-Side, “Don’t Look Any
Further”, finds the listener in a gritty drum heavy distortion bath of
lush Rhodes and melodica choruses. On the B-side, with “Caribbean
Queen”, The HSRS adds a layer of vulnerable grit to the silky original
and expounds upon the island sound with Patrick Korte aka P Dub’s
phenomenal drum work, warm dubs and a massive break down that
calls for a rewind.
