Normally try and leave you with something a bit more uptempo and party-hearty on a Friday night but, as I seem to have ballsed that right up this week, let’s take a look instead at this three-track V/A from Middlesbrough-based Luna Records.
House vibes at their deepest and most stripped-back are of course the order of the day here… the clue’s kind of in the title! French veteran Alexkid gives us Syndicate Dub, which is essentially 5:49 of a simple, lolloping beat that to these ears vaguely recalls the intro to Flash And The Pan’s Waiting For A Train, but slower and without the funny breathing noises. James Hutchison’s Soiree has a little more texture in the form of sub voce vocal fragments and dub techno-style FX, while Rogello’s Motumbo completes the EP, a strangely muted midpaced roller topped with warping sci-fi synths, albeit in the most understated way possible.
Uncompromising, heads-only tackle, this – the dancefloor at your local Ritzys/Oceania most certainly does NOT beckon! But that’s a good thing…
Out: This week
About: Luna have been on a bit of a break so it’s good to see them back in the game! Keep up with all their goings-on on Soundcloud and Facebook; there is an official website as well but it’s currently having a bit of a makeover.
