M-Capio – Dot Dash EP

October 13, 2013 in Singles

M-Capio Dot Dash EP Plain Sound RecordingsTime for a change of pace now, with an EP packed full of dusty, lo-fi beats from M-Capio, AKA Irish producer Jonny Mac.

“After several deep and tech EPs, this time I’m getting back to my roots with some trip-hop, dub and disco beats,” Jonny told me in his email, and yeah, that just about covers it. Neon Dub is a slo-mo skanker for which my notes read “laidback stoner beats”, Sandy Says puts extensive spoken Obama samples over what sound like distorted trombone samples and a wonky, scratchy backbeat your average Bay Area backpacker would be proud of , while finally Hills Of Funk is livelier, funkier number with an 80s disco sound palette that gets a bit Axel F in places.

Neon Dub is the standout for me but as changes of pace go this’ll do nicely all round.

Out: This week

About: This comes on Plain Sound Recordings, a Denver-based label who haven’t featured on TIWWD until tonight. They describe their remit as “house, techno and abstract composition” so I’m guessing this falls into the latter category! To find out more, hit ’em up on Facebook and/or Soundcloud.
