DESCRIPTION

San Francisco’s Honey Soundsystem Records returns with a new single inaugurating a new collaborative guise from Juan Maclean and Kevin McHugh (aka La-4a / Ambivalent).
It is rare that simplicity and recognizability happen in dance music, but ‘Take 8’ is just that. A song so heartfelt and recognizable it demanded its own slab of wax. This expertly mixed and crafted house cut romances listeners into a catchy live piano ditty that could go on for days.
The label decided the piano ​should​ go on and set up NYC classical Pianist and friend of Honey Soundsystem crew Kevin Devine on a blind date with the producers for the A2. Kevin whipped up a compositional response to the original and it was recorded live on a Grand in LA-4A’s studio. Finally, to make it a family affair, Taraval, known for his work of Four Tet’s TEXT, teams up with label co-founder Jackie House for a kraut-no take on the original, fusing vacillating resonant bleeps and robust drums with glimpses of the original’s ethereal sounds.
