ARKIST – SUMMER SHIMMER/WHIPPER SNAPPER
Serious bringing of the funk from Arkist here, coming soon on Appleblim’s label, Apple Pips. ‘Summer Shimmer’ works a full-on boogie flex with fresh wah wah guitars, a fat old stomp of a beat and those sweet dashes of vocal. ‘Whipper Snapper’ is all off key jazz piano, strings and trumpet until the breakdown where it all gets bit-crushed to buggery to reveal a looping, disco vibe which charges off on it’s own. Like two tracks for the price of one. Great stuff from this most versatile of producers.
Released Nov 4.
