The spirit of the album was born during their first trip to Tallahassee, Florida to meet George
Clinton, which resulted in a collaborative 2015 EP that also featured Sly Stone, as well as
production on Funkadelic’s 2015 critically acclaimed album. For their own album Soul Clap
returned to Tallahassee to record at Clinton’s What? Studios, collaborating with fresh local
talent, working day and night in P-Funk’s creative space. Between there, Miami, Red Bull
Studios Manhattan, Midnight Magic’s studio in Greenpoint and Charlie Levine’s Rad Pad in
Williamsburg, this body of music took shape.
In ‘Soul Clap’ we can hear four years of maturing technique since their first album, carefully
crafted and supported by a whole community of musical talent. In the words of Charles Levine,
one half of the duo, “it digs deep into our funky souls and turns our wildest dreams into sound.
If ‘EFUNK’ [their first album] was an attempt to create a blueprint using our past inspirations,
then “Soul Clap” is the beautiful skyscraper, standing tall as it looks to the future.”
This is music from an eclectic universe, where creativity and mystery are the guides. Lead
single ‘Shine’ is an anthemic wonder featuring the legendary Nona Hendryx, founding member
of the group Labelle, and collaborator with George Clinton & P-Funk, Talking Heads and Peter
Gabriel to name a few. ‘Elevation’ and ‘Numb’ feature Tallahassee locals Ebony Houston, Ricky
Tan, Dayonne Rollins and Freeky Neek, while original member of Funkadelic, Billy “Bass”
Nelson brings his low-slung flavor to ‘Funk Bomb’ and ‘Future4Love’. Members of Soul Clap’s
core Crew Love family, Wolf + Lamb, Nick Monaco and Greg Paulus of No Regular Play also
play integral roles on this eleven track album, a truly collaborative endeavor that echoes its
message through the soul.
Eli Goldstein and Charles Levine have a rare and insightful take on electronic music that
breaks through the limitations that often cages others and as DJs they have held residencies
everywhere from Circo Loco at DC10 Ibiza, to Output in New York. “Long ago our mentor Caril
Mitro from Vinyl Connection [a record store in their hometown of Boston] taught us that
“House wears many hats”. That means that the music that we love so much comes in many
shapes and sizes,’ explains Goldstein. ‘We are children of the 80’s and 90’s so funk and hip
hop were our early influences, but discovering the rave and being led into house and disco,
these genres feel very organic and homegrown to us. We carry these influences in our
attitudes and beings. Music has the incredible power to shape a personality and it has molded
us into the artists we have become.”
Starting out cutting their teeth in the 90’s Boston rave scene, they soon found fame through a
series of house edits and became household names through notable releases, including a DJ
Kicks alongside close allies Wolf + Lamb and their electric first album called EFUNK. The title,
which stands for Everybody’s Freaky Under Nature’s Kingdom, and sounds like modern
electronic funk, became their calling card, and led to their collaboration with George Clinton
and honorary entry into the P-Funk family. EFUNK is a bridge between the discerning futurism
of underground dance and the charisma and boldness of funk and pop culture. For Charlie funk
is his foundation, for Eli it’s jazz, and as their infamous Yoyoyo 90’s Jam parties testified
(playing only classics from the era), they have the ability to transform and lead in more than
one movement.
“Back in the day at the Warehouse in Chicago with Frankie Knuckles or The Paradise Garage
with Larry Levan there was no one sound that dominated musically. It was all about diversity
and eclecticism. This was the ethos then and it is a very large philosophy behind us
individually and as Soul Clap. In fact it is diversity in sound that initially brought us together
back in the 90’s and it is the yin-yang nature of us today that pushes us forward into the
FUTURE!” Available from 14.10.2016

Various – Soul Clap Presents: Tempo Dreams Vol.3
Friday, May 1st, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Soul Clap Presents: Tempo Dreams Vol.3

Image: 1595915 After two critically acclaimed volumes of the producer oriented compilations Tempo Dreams, Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings is back with Volume 3 of the beat-centric, forward looking series. For this album, the label has tapped Soul Clap, the Boston bred, international ambassadors of all things funky. Piloting their cosmic mothership all over the globe, Soul Clap have built a cult following worldwide both through their solo endevaors and through their Crew Love brand formed with Brooklyn’s Wolf+Lamb. Staying with the series theme of showcasing new styles, emerging artists and their own peers, Soul Clap has compiled a showcase of all unreleased modern funk, electro soul , and leftfield house music on this compilation sure to make their spiritual guide Dr. Funkenstein aka George Clinton proud.

As in with previous volumes, the artists included come from different places, spaces and times but are tied together by the musical connection running concurrent on the record. Soul Clap’s is certainly represented through their own original track “So Sedated”, a chugging synth heavy ode to the transformational powers of the dancefloor featuring understated vocals by Dayonne Rollins. Crew Love & Dirtybird artist Tanner Ross teams up with Jules Born for “No 1 Else But You”, a late night off-kilter piece of nasty funk, while fellow teammate Navid Izadhi brings a Cali swagger with the smoothed out G-Funk vibes of “Cadillack”. The left coast is further represented with Pasadena’s XL Middleton whose “AntiSlumper” kicks off the album with a throwback boogie vibe, while the mothership-approved production team FSQ delivers the irresistible down & dirty “Break The Funk”. Amsterdam artist Tom Trago comes in tough with the electro porn of “Hard Cash” while NYC is represented fully with disco hero Tom Noble’s “Tanked”, Analog Player’s Society’s wavey “Enter City”, and Greg Paulus’s late night soul vibes on “Everything (Love Down)”.

Tracklisting
1. XL Middleton – Antislumper
2. Tom Trago – Hard Cash (feat. M. Cruzer)
3. J. Loverman feat. Robert O’Dell – Life Unlimited (Ajukaja & Andrevski Rework)
4. Tom Noble – Tanked
5. Jules Born & Tanner Ross – No 1 Else but You
6. Soul Clap – So Sedated (feat. Dayonne Rollins)

Funkadelic & Soul Clap – 3 Track EP
Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Funkadelic & Soul Clap – 3 Track EP

Image: 1596227 Soul Clap teams up with the legendary Dr. Funkenstein himself, George Clinton for this 3 track EP, including one track featuring Sly Stone on keys! Full pic sleeve.

May 2nd 2013 will forever go down in Soul Clap history as an outstanding day to be alive. About a year of groundwork was finally paying off and the Clap had just flown Dr. Funkenstein himself, George Clinton from his home in Tallahassee, FL to Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles for a three day recording session. Onsite alongside Clinton were P-Funk family Sa’D “The Hourchild Ali”, G-Koop, Tonysha Nelson, Will “Digeridoo” Thoren as well as Crew Love members Nick Monaco and Navid Izadi.

Soul Clap’s collaboration with George Clinton has been nothing short of incredible. The team efforts of two generations of funk have created true musical dope-ness, which Clinton has proudly included on his new Funkadelic album (30 years since the last album!) including the title track “First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate” and the monster “In Da Karâ€, which features Sly Stone. Our simultaneous release on Soul Clap Records includes special EFUNK remixes by Soul Clap of “First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate” (aka Samplecopydupeitandloopittostupid) and “In Da Karâ€. Plus a west-coast, neck-snap, bonus-cut produced with Nick Monaco and with Clinton on vocals, P-Funk engineer G Koop on bass and Crew Love family member Greg Paulus on trumpet, titled ‘Peep This’.

Tracklisting:

Funkadelic, Soulclap & Brian Ellis Reflection – New Directions in Funk: Peep This / Slow Motion
Thursday, December 17th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Funkadelic, Soulclap & Brian Ellis Reflection – New Directions in Funk: Peep This / Slow Motion

Image: 1601343 You know Soul Clap likes it funky, so of course we’ve been digging all the new funk music coming out recently. This interest motivated us in compiling “Tempo Dreams Volume 3” for Bastard Jazz Records. In doing so we were able to gather so many amazing songs that they didn’t all fit on the compilation. Now using this inspiration as an invitation to start a new series on Soul Clap Records we’re excited to introduce NEW DIRECTIONS IN FUNK.

NEW DIRECTIONS IN FUNK is a colored 7″ vinyl only series that features future funk from Soul Clap and our freaky friends from around the world. Inspired by labels we love like Cherries, Voltaire, PPU, Hot Shot & Omega Supreme, NEW DIRECTIONS IN FUNK pushes the boundaries of what funk music can be, while always paying homage to the roots.

First in the series is a double A sider (aka music so hot we can’t choose!). On the A side is “Peep This”, a track we did with George Clinton/Funkadelic which features Crew Love members Nick Monaco and Greg Paulus along with G Koop!And do you remember “So Fine”, the Paradise Garage classic by Howard Johnson? Well he’s featured on the B side’s “Slow Motion”, a collaboration with Bay Area innovator Brian Ellis’ Reflection project!

Image: 1611977 Brooklyn’s own PHENOMENAL HANDCLAP BAND are fresh from the studio with two new tracks for their new imprint, Magnifreeq. Producer and founding member Daniel Collás has teamed up with singer and multi-instrumentalist Juliet Swango for this release, an exciting, beat-heavy blend of psych, northern soul, and krautrock, recalling a time when such disparate sounds were mixed together by pioneering DJs at the dawn of New York’s nascent hip hop and underground disco movements.

TRAVELER’S PRAYER is an understated psychedelic soul tour-de-force, rich with vocal harmonies and prog rock flourishes.

On the flip side is STEPPED INTO THE LIGHT, a gospel tale of redemption set to a driving, krautrock-inflected backdrop, finding the sweet spot between northern soul and proto disco.

De La Soul – The Grind Date (10th Anniversary)
Thursday, November 20th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on De La Soul – The Grind Date (10th Anniversary)

Image: 1593976 10th Anniversay reissue of The Grind Date. 2LP colored vinyl (one LP orange / other LP is blue), Gatefold Sleeve. Guest appearances from Common, Ghostface, MF Doom, Flava Flav, Sean Paul, & more

De La Soul were interrupted just before they could deliver the third volume in their AOI series — projected to be a DJ album — to Tommy Boy. (The label perhaps bailed out from a 15-year relationship precisely because the group was going to release such a commercially bankrupt title, one that was planned instead to appear on an independent label run by Maseo.) De La Soul quickly realized they couldn’t go ahead with the plan after signing their AOI label to Sanctuary, so they wrote a new record, The Grind Date. Although it may see them settling into a holding pattern, at least the pattern of 2001’s AOI: Bionix is one that any hip-hop fan won’t mind hearing repeated. Better yet, it boasts productions from an excellent cast of figures — partner in crime Supa Dave West, author of the best tracks on their AOI series, J-Dilla, who’s stretching out his patented (read: overdone) sound to embrace classic hip-hop, an only slightly commercialized Madlib, and young phenom 9th Wonder. Madlib gets what must be the first lead single of his career, a bright, antimaterialist tale called ”Shopping Bags (She Got From You)” that thumps like a club tune, but lurches as only the Beat Conductor could do it. ”Verbal Clap” finds J-Dilla allowing some grit into his productions, and Supa Dave only continues floating the most fluidly catchy productions of any rap producer in action. Meanwhile, De La Soul voices Posdnuos and Dave balance their time breezing easy on bumping message tracks with a few old-school shots that show
them a bit defensive about the passing of time. (Check out ”Come On Down,” a Madlib-produced shot with Flava Flav, or ”Days of Our Lives” featuring Common.) Without a concept to tout, The Grind Date doesn’t gel like AOI: Bionix, but it does show De La Soul keeping everything together more than 15 years after their debut. After all, you certainly wouldn’t see MF Doom guesting on a Tone-Loc record. – Review By John Bush

Various – BamaLoveSoul Pres. On Deck Vol.2
Thursday, February 27th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – BamaLoveSoul Pres. On Deck Vol.2

Image: 1586819 Around the locals “sweet home” of Birmingham/Alabama, if they weren’t belting out

Lynyrd Skynyrd, the mainstream radio stations would repeat the latest HOT 100 zingers off the

R&B conveyer-belt, much like the rest of the US. That is until visionary tastemaker Roderick

Moody – aka DJ Rahdu – brought his hit Diamond Soul Xxxperience Show to the ‘Bama

airwaves. For 2 hours out of 24, 1 day out of 7, they’d play nothing but soulful music. Soul was

the link, even if it had a hip hop, house, Caribbean or jazzy vibe to it, it had to be soulful. “The

only no-show was R&B … you could hear that after we were done.” Explains Rahdu – who was

able to bottle his on-air success, taking it first to the streets via open mic events, before

launching his BamaLoveSoul.com website to over a million black alternative music fans across

the free world. Then in 2012, the commercially released and critically acclaimed

“BamaLoveSoul Presents On Deck”, would go on to fly off the shelves of record store Dusty

Groove – as they say in Birmingham – faster than a hound sucks an egg.

For On Deck 2, wading through a wealth of new material submitted specifically for his new

project, Rahdu selected twelve brand new tracks, created by tomorrow’s found generation.

Beginning with the jazzy keys of Rippy Austin’s ‘Fallen’, Rahdu describes the intro “As a walk

through the pearly gates of heaven” before Joomanji follows up with ‘Intoxicated’ which “slaps

you right in the face”. Every lick sounding fresh, as the selection expertly ebbs & flows.

Stephanie Nicole’s spaced out funk ‘Diligence’ paves the way for the ethereal beauty of

James Tillman’s voice on ‘Shangri La’. The artists, were handpicked, given 6 months to

prepare their submissions and were all keen to put their best foot forward. Jevon Reynolds

had the damnedest time coming up with his track before emailing Rahdu with the words “I had

a breakthrough” – the Midnight Mix of ‘Silence’ left Rahdu, when asked to comment, ironically

speechless. Humus, a bunch of Finns, get in on the action too, replacing GDNA’s soulful

house ‘Calm’ (which is anything but) with the horn driven, gorgeously sung serenade ‘I Do (I

Do)’.

“As a DJ coming up, I’d sometimes only demand that the groove was hot,” Says Rahdu, “but

with this music, you really have to listen to the words.” Alabama home-grown talent Fayth

Hope and her neo soul ‘Warrior’ sounds perfectly in tune with the blaxploitation glide of J

Finesse’s ‘Drums, Claps & Snaps … Ya Dig’ before the nuvo-electronic instrumental of

Buscrates 16 Bit Ensemble’s ‘In The Distance’ comes to the forefront. Aisha Mars illuminates

the finale with ‘Ultraviolet’, “leaving you in a dream,” says Rahdu before adding “and fulfilled …

hopefully.”

KEY SELLING POINTS:

• Future Soul Classics for the New B-Boy’s

• Twelve previously unreleased tracks.

• The first volume flew off the racks of Dusty Groove (voted by the readers of Rolling

Stone Magazine as one of the best record stores in America), selling out within

days.

• BamaLoveSoul.com, owned by DJ Rahdu, is a tastemaker music website which has

received over a million unique visitors.

• Leading US brands Hennessey & Banana Republic sought out and partnered with

the BamaLoveSoul.com platform to promote their products.

• DJ Rahdu’s ‘Bama-based open mic event included performances by Saul Williams,

Eric Roberson, Anthony David & Goapele to mention a few.

Zara McFarlane – Angie La La (Yoruba Soul Mixes)
Friday, January 3rd, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Zara McFarlane – Angie La La (Yoruba Soul Mixes)

Image: 1586236 The first music to be lifted from her forthcoming sophomore album, Zara McFarlane drops ‘Angie La La’ in December 2013. In many ways an underground cult classic, Zara’s reworking of this Jamaican psych gem by Nora Dean features former Brownswood Bubblers alumnus and New Yorker Leron Thomas on trumpet and vocals. Recorded at Matthew Halsall’s 80 Hertz studio in Manchester, it’s firmly rooted in swing territory, driven by the killer rhythm section of Luke Flowers (drums) and Gavin Barras (double bass). Zara herself reclines into the groove with consummate grace, her vocals blessed at once with crystalline clarity and warmth.

Consistently one of our favourite producers from the house realm, the truly legendary Osunlade aka Yoruba Soul applies his golden touch to ‘Angie La La’, crafting an exquisitely sensitive and soulful groove founded on booming kicks and handclaps.

Zara McFarlane inhabits a less trodden musical landscape. Her performance brings to mind a vocal world more akin to early Nina Simone and Roberta Flack’s ‘First Take’, than to Ella and the great American songbook. Many of her tunes possess power and an underlying spirituality reminiscent of the “spiritual jazz” movement of 70’s black America. Indeed, the fact that McFarlane was selected to perform alongside jazz star Gregory Porter at last year’s breathtaking Nina Simone tribute concerts (in the Netherlands) makes total sense. Like Porter, Zara is a thoughtful, uniquely engaging artist who combines the intricacies of jazz with a deep soulfulness that seamlessly blends multiple black influences.

Myron & E With The Soul Investigators – Cold Game
Wednesday, January 1st, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Myron & E With The Soul Investigators – Cold Game

Image: 1586580 “It’s time to take another look at Myron & E, the duo of soul brothers from California, whose debut album “Broadway” was released by Stones Throw Records during the summer of 2013. “Cold Game” is the first in a series of two Myron & E albums, which will be released by Timmion Records. It features tracks from the first album, an early single cut with The Soul Investigators, and a fresh new instrumental to groove on.

The album sleeve has a photo of Myron Glasper and Eric Boss sitting on an iceberg, in Helsinki in the Spring of 2009. This iceberg was a monument to the heavy snowfalls Finland received during the winter, still standing months later, and providing an ideal stage to shoot some cold game. This is the true tone Timmion wants to paint with its private alternate pressings of the music The Soul Investigators recorded with Myron & E from the year 2007 to 2012.

Some of the music The Soul Investigators play might sound cheery at first, but deep inside beats a heart full of authentic Finnish melancholy, reflecting the finest escapist moods of classic American soul. Myron & E reach the music potently, complementing this brand of unpolished soul to the fullest.

“Cold Game” also features the thick tip-on cardboard sleeves Timmion is known for, guaranteeing that this album will stand proudly between your favorite soul LP’s.”

“Cold Game” by Myron & E with The Soul Investigators is now being released in Finland! The album is Timmion Records pressing, cut in our own Cutting Laboratory, and will be available on Timmion Webshop, shops in Finland, and during Live shows. Get you own copy of this collectors item before it’s too late!

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Lefties Soul Connection

Amsterdam may not be known for gritty funk and soul, but the diversity, drive and spirit of this great city is in many ways reflected in the music of Lefties Soul Connection. Even though the Lefties’ sound is rooted in the classic funk of bands like the Meters, they are by no way trapped in the past. Lefties Soul Connection are a band of today creating songs for the year 2007 and beyond.

Their second album is titled “Skimming The Skum“. In many ways, that’s what they have done since day one. The Lefties’ DIY approach is taking the funk back to basics. Organ, guitar, bass and drums – recorded on 8 tracks at an old factory hall in the outskirts of Amsterdam. One-takes only with no additives or overdubs added …

Bosq – Can’t Seem To Hide
Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Bosq – Can’t Seem To Hide

Image: 1609834 “‘Can’t Seem To Hide’ will be a bona fide classic of 2017 thanks to its combination of a party-time keyboard line over a relentless groove and Megan Doherty’s hypnotic vocal. Nicole Willis can do no wrong, either, as she steps up to deliver further damage on the flip.” -Mixmag 10/10 March 2017 Tune Of The Month

Bosq’s new single sees him diving deeper into funky disco, creating songs that are more musical but maintain the rawness that translates to a feeling on the dancefloor.

The A-side features a collaboration between Bosq and vocalist Megan Doherty from Social Lovers which has already garnered a “tune of the month” feature and a 10/10 rating from Mixmag. Mark Usher’s funk-laden rhythm guitar attack punctuates the song while Megan’s silky smooth vocal delivery glide on top of the Bosq-crafted groove with an understated cool and sexiness that permeate the entire track.

The featured vocalist on the flip of this double A-side disco burner is none other than soul-highness herself Nicole Willis, who was featured on Bosq’s previous single “Bad For Me”. Her powerful vocal style reminiscent of disco divas past along with Mark channeling his inner “Nile Rodgers” delivers yet another future dancefloor classic.

Calling Medellin, Colombia home for the time being, these 2 tracks were the last songs Bosq made in his US studio. Seeking inspiration and surrounded by a new landscape literally and musically while finding new partners to collaborate with on projects such as Body Music with The Rapture’s drummer Vito Roccoforte he continues to hone his craft. Along with dropping the Tumbala EP on Soul Clap, the full-length album San Jose 51 recorded in Puerto Rico with the Candela All-Stars and his various remix work for Fania, and Cultures Of Soul to name a few, Bosq’s relentless work ethic, output and openness to further develop his sound can only mean good things for Latin, Afro, Disco, Funk, and Soul aficionados alike.

Tanner Ross – Straight To The Moon EP
Monday, July 4th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tanner Ross – Straight To The Moon EP

Image: 1604971 Boston beat boi Tanner Ross is finally back, with another embodiment of his signature take on future EFUNK. Ranging from creamy nostalgic R&B featuring PillowTalk, Slow Hands and Jesse Rennix to tripped out weirdness in collaboration with Lonely C and 80s synthesis romance with Jules Born, the ‘Straight To The Moon EP’ on Double Standard will take you from palm-fringed Miami sands to deep outer space.

Across five originals (Side A and B on pure white 10″) and two instrumentals, Tanner Ross once again casts his sonic spell with a master class in originality with support from select members of the Wolf + Lamb collective, having already made his artistic footprint on labels W+L and No.19. First song on the EP ‘The Blame Game’ featuring Slow Hands, PillowTalk and Jesse Rennix, is smooth and warm as melted cocoa butter and rides on a sweet soulful melody reminiscent of 80s hip hop and Dam Funk, a blissful hazy groove and authentic vocals from San Fran’s finest PillowTalk and Jesse Rennix.

Second song is summer groover ‘Frequent Flyer’ featuring one half of rising duo Voices of Black, Jules Born. Heavy on 70s/80s analogue synths full of soul and charm, this is sun-soaked electro funk for top-down cruising.

Title track ‘Straight To The Moon’ leads the way into more spacey territory, relishing a menacing low-end as an indolent percussive roll carries rushing synths and cosmic FX. ‘Straight To Mexico’ treads more softly with hypnotic electronic pools and chugging beats as the quirky bassline drives the melody. ‘Chillin In Yo Bed’, featuring vocals from Soul Clap’s Lonely C, sticks with the metronomic pace and unfolds in a tale of trippy desire, shaped by a vintage synth fixation.

Various – Tempo Dreams Vol.4
Saturday, March 5th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Tempo Dreams Vol.4

Image: 1602788 The last couple of years have been huge for Pomo , going from a relatively obscure Canadian producer to releasing his debut EP on HW&W, remixing for the likes of Janet Jackson and Mark Ronson, producing “Am I Wrong?” on Anderson Paak’s debt album and touring the globe with Disclosure as their opening act.

Bastard Jazz has commissioned Pomo to be next in line for the fourth volume of their “Tempo Dreams” compilation series, following on the heels of the acclaimed Soul Clap compiled Vol. 3. As with other Tempo Dreams records, Pomo has curated a slick and well polished album full of exclusive tracks from friends and collaborators such as Lindsay Lowend, Aloka, Exmag, Syre, Daniel Crawford, FVLCRVM and more. Touching on the shimmering nudisco sound, plodding deep electronic vibes, funky instrumental hip-hop, and even a hint of drum ‘n’ bass, Tempo Dreams Vol. 4 takes it’s rightful place in the series as one of the most forward thinking compilations showcasing emerging young talent.

Pomo – Blue Soda (Parts 1 & 2)
Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Pomo – Blue Soda (Parts 1 & 2)

Image: 1601651 The last couple of years have been huge for Pomo, going from a relatively obscure Canadian producer to releasing his debut EP on HW&W, remixing for the likes of Janet Jackson and Mark Ronson, and touring the globe with Disclosure as their hand-picked opening act.

Bastard Jazz has commissioned Pomo to be next in line for the fourth volume of their “Tempo Dreams” compilation albums, following on the heels of the hotly contested Soul Clap compiled Vol. 3. As with other Tempo Dreams records, we tease it out with a limited 7″ release with tracks from the compiler made specifically for the Tempo Dreams album.

“Blue Soda” (Part 1) – Pomo’s first original release since his EP in November of 2014 is a typical, rollicking Pomo new disco joint with stabbing synths, chopped vocal samples and an irresistible bassline. Part 2 on the flip-side delivers more of the same, with a little more of an introspective twist. Part 2 is exclusive to the 7″ only and won’t be on the album. Available from 19.02.2016
