This is out on vinyl, superb release!
Friends come first, so to speak. We hold the words of those we hold dearly as gospel, and this EP mirrors that feeling.
After his last release “One” on Room With A View (w/ Detroit Swindle remix) and several contributions to labels like MCDE, Endless Flight or together as Creative Swing Alliance on Wolf Music, Tsuba & City Fly - FACES Records & MCDE labels head honcho Pablo Valentino decide to release what he describes as his first full EP on his own imprint FACES.
"Friends Say So" is a nicely stripped down filter-jam; you don’t need much when all the elements are good like this: a haunting female vocal sample, gritty lo-fi beats, a disco loop. Reminiscent of early Shake or the very first Sneak records, this beauty will definatly set the floor on fire.
"What Does It Take" sounds like a straight up Shelter anthem from ‘92 that just got unearthed. Heavy on the 909 and Juno keys, its the kind of late night jam that leaves everybody with a smile on their face.
On the B-side, “Nuff Thangs” opens up things nicely; lush keys on top of a disco sample set the mood for things to come with “Can’t You See”, a female diva singing her ass off over dirty-as-hell MPC beats and rhodes stabs. You cant go wrong with this package!
