SIMONCINO – FOR MY FATHER EP
I featured Simoncino’s mix for LIES as a Mix of The Day a few days back and here’s a little taster of his new EP, his debut on Dutch label Creme Organization. That mix was indebted to the old school and this EP doesn’t stray to far either – each of Tapes I, II and II is ingrained in the sounds of Detroit and Chicago. Tape I goes for the jugular with a snarling bassline and hefty drums, Tape II shimmering with satellite sounds from another galaxy while Tape III is probably the most indebted to the warehouse days with that rubbery bassline, trill hats and a ghostly, almost flute-like line running throughout. The Intervals are impressively lush too.
