Session Victim love what they do. The pure joy they get from writing, producing and performing their unique blend of underground dance music oozes from their very pores, translating into pure good vibes for anyone witnessing the duo in action. As a label, we couldn’t be more proud to see their growth and development from a couple of self confessed semi-reclusive studio geeks into the globe-trotting DJ’s and headlining live-act they’ve now become. With their second LP for Delusions Of Grandeur about to drop it’s easy to hear their constant drive to push themselves emanating from their new material. Never ones to stand still, the victims choose to draw influence and inspiration from their travels and the new surroundings they constantly find themselves in which, in the case of See You When You Get There, happens to be the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Here we present the second part in a trilogy of LP samplers kicking things off with Do It Now, a rolling fusion of disco beats, synth bleeps, rhodes licks and guitar hits all whacked in the Session Victim blender. Next up is Hey Stranger, where a more melancholic vibe prevails, the crisp beats punctuated now and then with the brilliant vocal hook. Make People Dance is up next, starting off as a mellow, jazz jam before things take a left turn and go heads down into a percussion-fueled rhythm section with the looped up ‘make people dance’ vocal getting under your skin. Finally we have title track See You When You Get There in all its Balearic glory, glowing warmly with arpeggiating synths, lilting guitar tune and gentle groove.
Part 3 coming soon!
