It always picks my mood up to hear a bit of a Chicago-style house type platter in my pile on a Friday morning. This came from the pen (okay they probably don’t use pens to make this kind of music anymore) of Mark Fell (SND) much of whose output makes Autechre sound like The Goombay Dance Band.
Although jerky in the extreme, its upbeat clean house/techno style is made for days much more sunny than the monochrome piece of crap I can see through the slits of the curtains. There are lots of strange production touches including what sounds like a sheep on the A side and the use of the ubiquitous ‘oh yeah’ (also used by Timmy Mallett on his ‘Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini’ opus).Thankfully there are enough great production touches to transcend the eccentricity, the A side floats along lovely but somehow (and I can’t explain how it does it) launches into a superb second section fired on by staccato vocal snippets, squelchy synth and a stunner of an electronic bassline. Really great intellig-house (I made that up) to file alongside the other 12”’s in this series and his Arthur Scargill sampling collaboration with DJ Sprinkles.
