A double EP release from the Classic Music Company, mixing together friends old and new from the label. Recent signings to Classic, No Dial Tone deliver their second original production to the imprint ‘Standing Still’ – a deep slow burning almost Bjork-esq vocal record kicks off the A side. Long time label cohort from the early Bar Rumba days; Mathew Herbert twists and turns the record into something completely ‘Herbert’ and ultimately ‘classic’ in its make up.
On the flip...long-time Greenskeepers man James Curd returns to Classic with nothing short of a BUMP! ‘Gentle Help’ is typical Curd Funk and now with added Black Madonna flavours. Road tested relentlessly at the Smart Bar, the Chicago native channels the essence of old Dance Mania records and funnels it into something typically a little left of centre.
Each track is uniquely different and recognisably Classic.
