Carlo Gambino – Midnight Social EP

March 3, 2013 in Singles

Carlo Gambino Midnight Social EP 3am RecordingsA three-track EP here from Carlo Gambino, coming – confusingly – not on his own Midnight Social Recordings, but on the label where he first made his name, Al Bradley’s 3am Recordings. And with – even more confusingly – not a saxophone in earshot, despite the cover artwork!

Game Face is up first, a bassy, wonky, midtempo kinda affair with a very familiar female vocal sample and some pleasingly tinkling Rhodes alongside an infectious, squelchy synth riff. Next, It’s Alright is another midtempo chugger with a nagging high-end synth riff and a counterpointing low-end organ drone, all topped off with one of those house-eulogising vocals… but, unusually, from a woman’s voice. And then finally, Deepa is a drummy, throbbing workout that goes, well… deeper.

Three solid cuts for contemporary floors.

Out: This week on Beatport, everywhere else from 1 April.

About: You can find 3am Recordings on Facebook and Soundcloud.
