Super smart four track EP on The Trilogy Tapes from NYC’s Willie Burns, real name William Thomas Burnett who also records under the pseudonyms, Grackle and Speculator and has released stuff on Strangelife, Creme Organization and L.I.E.S.
It kicks off with the title track ‘The Overlord’ which is bursting with oldskool hardcore style pads, pitched down darkside vocal and what sounds like distorted gunshots. It sounds like Danny Wolfers doing an ode to early 90’s rave.
‘Duh Duh Dunk’ is a really sweet number; a mid tempo infectious soulful / melancholy house excursion complete with 909 claps and breezy piano motif.
‘African Love Story’ is a quirky melodic tune with funky bassline and shimmering hi-hats. It all sounds pretty dry but I could be wrong. When it gets going it really hits the sweet spot.
‘A Summer In Grass’ closes the EP sounding not unlike Kevin Saunderson on sleepers. This of course is a good thing. It’s injected with some playful yet soulful keys which work a treat. Not an easy one to pigeon hole but put in a corner I’d maybe call it experimental house. Fuck knows, who cares?
It’s a fine EP well worth picking up. Recommended.
