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.

Moony Me – Screwdriver

Moony Me - Screwdriver

Secret Crunch Records is a new imprint established last year by Vienna-based artists Roman Rauch and Moony Me.  Both producers have a similar musical ethos heavily influenced by hip-hop, soul, funk and disco and this is evident in the samples used throughout their productions.  Their first EP, “Bunch of Crunch” featured the pair’s collaboration on four tracks plus two additional remixes.  Their second, aptly titled “One Split Wonder” EP will feature three tracks from each producer divided onto the two sides of the record.  There is no A or B side but rather the RR (Roman Rauch) side and the MM (Moony Me) side.

The Bolting Bits premiere is focused on the first track on Moony Me’s side, “Screwdriver,”  A classic percussion loop and a straight house beat form the backbone of the groove as stabby sampled chords are introduced into the fray.  A no-frills, vintage sounding bass line comes in and works well in tandem with the other elements.  The real ear pleaser here is the early 1990’s sped up R&B vocal sample (we’ll let you dig it up yourself) which makes an early, teasing appearance before the song is stripped back.  As the track breaks down the chords and vocals are brought back in, with a build-up in the groove it creates a perfect hands in the air moment which should be able to pack any dancefloor.

As always, don’t forget to check out the other stellar cuts on the record. This one is expected to hit store shelves at the end of the month so get your pre-orders in now!
