9/10 Phil Staff review, 06 September 2012
We had a 12” by Teams and Star Slinger a while back which folks were going nuts for. I’m pretty sure I heard it but my memory isn’t what it used to be. Whatever, I’m coming into this with fresh unexpecting ears which are often the best ears to use when reviewing.
Essentially this is sample based electronic music with its roots in hip-hop, R’n’B, funk and smooth ‘80s vibes. It fits reasonably into the chillwave genre as it ticks all the boxes but it’s much more kick-ass. The beats are loud and in your face, the melodies are loud in the music and there’s samples everywhere. ‘Stunts’ is an ace tune with its dirty phasing jittery beat and jerky funk bass.
In fact a lot of the music here is slightly awkward and jerky but the melodies are so strong that you largely ignore that. That coupled with the ace lo-fi production which sounds fuzzy and dirty is making it a total winner for me. In fact the press release said it all for this one - “A complete melting pot of lush beats, ambient melodies and vast soundscapes that drag you into the shadows then put you into a trance” - which I really can‘t argue with!
