The next EP on Danse Club Records comes from the brotherly pair behind the label, Brodanse, and will land just ahead of them returning to Fabric for a second set in the New Year. This new EP features vocalist Elli, who has previously worked with artists such as Dub Taylor and Geddes. The release will be complimented by a remix competition, starting the day after release, with the winner’s mix getting an official release on the label later in the spring.
The original single kicks off with title track ‘Train Of Thought’, an uptempo house cut that is deep and driving. Train track like grooves and rattling little percussive sounds help propel you along with fat, wobbly chords, whilst the whole thing is underpinned by a relentless, rolling B-line that sits at the heart of the groove. The icing on the cake is the vocal delivery of Elli as she whispers and speaks in breathy tones, adding a layer of intrigue and late night mystery to proceedings.
Next up, ‘Secret Service’ is a deep down low dub house cut. Wooden hits glide above crisp hi hats, rumbling bass and kicks set a fine tone below and the whole supple groove seduces and soothes you. Spraying, smeared synths add more weight and space and ensure this is a decent back room slow burner.
The EP’s out 5 January 2015.
