Carlo Gambino – Game Changer EP

February 22, 2014 in Singles

Carlo Gambino Game Changer EP Something ElseEarlier in the week we were talking about the latest release on Carlo Gambino’s Midnight Social Recordings… now here comes the man himself, moonlighting with this three-tracker for Something Different sister label Something Else.

Game Changer itself is up first, a bleepy, twitchy shuffler with a fat walking bassline, vaguely unsettling synths, plenty of cowbell and a cheeky little bite of (or maybe nod to?) a certain very famous old Liberty City vocal. That’s followed by No Fool, a more chuggy cut that uses the vocal from Risse’s Chain Of Fools (also used by Murk on Mission Control’s Outta Limits, funnily enough). And then last but by no means least we have This Ain’t Jazz, which is a slightly livelier cut in a drifty, 4am kinda way and sports a male voice telling us that “what you are about to hear is not jazz”.

He’s right, it’s not jazz. It is rather good, though – as is the whole EP, to be fair.

Out: This week

About: You can find Something Else on Soundcloud and Facebook. And seeing as I was just at the latter you might as well hear This Ain’t Jazz while you’re here!
