- The Pennines EP by Vellico
1 review. Write a review for us »
I hadn’t read the press release properly and had assumed something entitled ‘The Pennines’ would be some rustic folk type affair. However, its always nice to have surprises in life and the lead track is a fantastic blast of rugged left field house.
Beginning with a minute or so of a clattering beat, some chunky wobbly synths power into the mix to create a nice rhythmic vibe with just snatches of vocal samples coming in and out of the mix. Some nice gloopy synths create a melodic diversion and the whole thing is put together really well. What I like best is the track is not too slick, there’s some big chunky neanderthal beats in there and the climax to the track is really intense. Its like a gritty northern pennine take on the kind of shimmering retro house featured on the 100% Silk label.
133G is simpler, more laid back springing to life when the Burial-like vocal samples and synth emerge over the crisp beats. Really loving the snippet of warm sounds that is pieced into ‘Becks Brew;’ just hinting at something that is about to appear. Closer ‘The Peace Signal’ has twinkling bell-like synth and a more 4/4 orientated standard beat.
This is the new project from Ross Tones (aka Throwing Snow) alongside brother Alistair and its energetic instinctive dancefloor is well worth investigating.
