DESCRIPTION

In almost ten years of existence, Throne of Blood has cultivated a diverse family of musical talent spread across the Americas and Europe, refusing to settle into any particular sound or scene. Foremost among this crew of almost-impossible-to-pigeonhole producers is Dissident veteran Hardway Bros aka Sean Johnston, known to many as Andrew Weatherall’s partner in A Love From Outer Space.
His third EP for the label, “Pleasure Cry,” is characteristic of Sean’s style : a modern sound with sly winks to his rich history in electronic music.
The proceedings kick off with “Pleasure Cry”, an ode to submission featuring the exotic talents of vocalist Sarah Rebecca (formerly known as SR Krebs) anchored by a classic “Reece” bassline. Possibly not suitable for work but we suggest you blast it at the office to see what happens. The tune gets the remix treatment by Gerd Janson and Philip Lauer aka Tuff City Kids, piling on the pianos and cutting up the vocals in a very Saundersonian fashion.
“Argonaut” was originally written for an ALFOS gig on the Adriatic sea, and pays homage to the sounds of early 90’s Balearic house. It’s perfect for sunsets AND sunrises, we’ll let you pick which works best for you. The self explanatory titled “My PNO” is Sean’s take on piano house, steering clear of throwback clichés. Its hook, however, should have a similar arm raising effect on dancefloor revelers.
