- Heyvalva Heyvalva Hey by Dance
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 02 May 2014
I'm not sure who Dance is and the press release is giving nothing away apart from the track titles but I'm quite enjoying this new 12" on Blank Mind. 'Heyvalva Heyvalva Hey' is based around a chopped up sample of a guy singing the title that loops and stutters infectiously alog to a heavy techno bass beat, then there's some intricate clicks and electric hand drum type sounds that come and go under the surface and some cool rhythmic progressions, then the sample drops out and you get a chance to properly hear those dinky little beats, then there's a rewind sound and the sample starts again. I can see this one totally slaying dancefloors, it's quite rhythmically sophisticated but really infectiously kinetic, it's hard to sit still while listening to it.
'Bottomless Pit' is on the other side and this one's fairly different, with chopped up synth samples as its melodic base instead of that hypnotic vocal loop. The way they're cut together is weirdly disorientating and then there's a blurry echoed vocal grunt and they ease you into the beat with some nifty hat and tambourine work which goes on for a minute or two before the kick hits. This one's not as energetic as the track on the other side and it has a seagull-esque klaxon that turns up about halfway through which is a bit jarring as well as some harshly buzzing synth drones. Towards the end there is a vocal sample saying, that's right, "Bottomless Pit". Quite a dark and confrontational listen compared to the more fun A side.
