VA – Tale of Tales: Chapter 02

VA - Tale of Tales: Chapter 02

Lagaffe Tales continue their impressive vinyl releases with an all-star European line up. The Icelandic label are again about to fill your eardrums with an array of house tracks. Out 5th of May on Lagaffe Tales.

Rolling out first and now playing ball on his home-court, Dirt Crew newcomer Felix Leifur introduces the sampler. “Eitt” comes soaked in soul and deadly stabs. His unique flavour is permeated all over this dancefloor filler. As weird and wonky as Felix gets, this one just about tops it. Twisting minds with his wizardry since his first release and by the sounds of this track, he has no plans to slow down.

The second track on the EP comes from German duo, Coeo. This track will evoke the familiar 6am sunrise in this carefree deep club cut. “Clouds” has hard hitting drums that are infused in the soft piano riff creeping in and out accompanied by other hypnotic sounds. Caution! A journey into a deep state of dreamland awaits…

The theme of European imports continues, this time Vienna based main man, Mooney Me lends his talents to the Icelandic label. His gift is “Soul”. With captivating percussion, a mean ass bassline all melded together with ethereal melodic chimes. A groove that will make any basement sweat out their worries.

Rounding off is Swedish newcomer, Sune. If you’re looking for a groove that will get your body bouncing and leave a wide smile on your face, you’ve found it! His input is “I’ll Be Right Back” .a serious peak time mover! This cut of the legendary “Roy Ayers – The Golden Rod” supplies the floor with a deep disco vibe. Horns are in full swing with this one and are welcomed with some infectious high piano. This will have your hands in the Ayer within seconds.

Felix Leifur – In General EP

Felix Leifur - In General EP

New kid Felix Leifur made quite a stir with his debut release on Dirt Crew last year. The Icelandic juggernaut comes from the striving Reykjavik music scene and is working closely with the “Lagaffe Tales” guys on building a new northern House empire. Since his debut he’s been working hard on creating a more varied vision of his unique lo slung hip hop approach to house music. With this EP he offers six new outings that have one thing in common, very warm and moody sounds ranging from Disco through jazz and hip hop. We’re certain that he will continue to further cement his name in the coming years and we’re looking forward to working with him on plenty of exciting projects.

Opening with “Eyelids”, Felix delivers a rough, deep and dark house cut with broken beats, warped piano loops and twisted sampling throughout. “Classy” has a smoky jazz feeling, kept tight with clever beat programming while evolving around a catchy sax motif. Our personal favorite is the title track, “In General”, a stunning broken beat house jam, smooth and loose, with swirling keys and a funk flavored bass.

The B-side begins with “Midwinter”, a dance floor gem on a straight up junket. It’s deep, forward moving and bass driven, much like his track “Feels Like” that featured on our Deep Love compilation in 2016. Yet another highlight for us is “Apollo”, there’s not many records out there that sound quite like this, thoroughly warped and contorted, depraved strings and a hypnotizing Rhodes arc and strain until the bass drops and it all falls in place…Psychedelic beauty! He closes with “Mine”, a dope lo-fi hip hop beat that casually wraps our ears, an ice cold soul infused piece.
