"My recent sets have become something of a Tici Taci megamix"... Andrew Weatherall
As recommended by the Chairman...
A brand new label with some old hands on deck, tici taci is bringing the funk back with this first release - Electric Plum. Producer Duncan Gray (ex Sons of Slough, veteran of many vinyl labels) has gone back to basics, slowed things down to 110bpm and plugged in the real instruments.
The A side - Electric Plum - pays tribute to the might of P-Funk, Bootsy 'n' Bernie's unison bass stylings coupled with a big unreliable analog synth calling the crowd to party. On the B side Purple Ash evokes the days when synth pioneers just wanted to make funk tracks. Look out for the big mood swing - the only thing missing is Chaka herself.
The good news is that these tracks have been given a thorough road testing by the Chairman himself - Andrew Weatherall has been playing these (and a big bunch of other tici taci pre-releases) over the last few months - check tici taci's soundcloud page for links to AW mixes. Duncan is also Andrew's favoured bolt-on guitarist for remix work having played guitar on some recent remixes including Craig Bratley's Obsession.
There is plenty more to come from this new label so now is the time to go out and get the perfect grey leather jacket so you can roll the sleeves up and look totally cool while you groove to the tici taci sound.
