::T.U.R.F. – Good Times Roll::
Dutch duo T.U.R.F. bring the heat to Exploited again after contributing the super-hot ‘Sneaky Ways’ last year. Their knack for a tasty groove is very much intact, with two surefire disco house slammers on this release.
‘Good Times Roll’ builds a foundation of chunky beats around some sweet jazz-funk vibes, with dashes of sax and clavinet interpersing the piledriver bassline. Jaunty pianos loop tensely and quickfire white noise builds and cymbal echoes keep things energetic. When it comes to high energy, organically-textured house music, these guys really know what they’re doing.
‘Street Talkin’ is a deep and jacking groove built around small disco loops that filter in and out of the foreground, with super-skippy beats cutting against the deep textures of the melodic elements. Looped vocals and infectious fills and to the groove’s bumping feel, and a soulful breakdown blasts into an extra-funked-up section full of incessant horn and electric piano flavour.
With other contributions on Tensnake’s True Romance label and Till Von Sein’s Tilly Jam, T.U.R.F. are rapidly carving out a name for themselves as ones to watch. Don’t sleep on these bombs…
