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 third and final part in a trilogy of LP samplers kicking off with one of the LP’s strongest dancefloor pleasers The Most Beautiful Divorce Ever. Built around a filtering Rhodes loop, this energetic roller twists n turns with dubby FX and a killer groove. Crystal Maze sees the duo drop it down for some low-end spaced out folk-tinged balearic business. Under Your Spell comes next with off- kilter beats and a loping groove that gets under your skin. And finally things wind down with Eo’s Place, a beautiful slice of head music calling to mind Smokers Delight-era Nightmares on Wax with it’s 808 beats, soaring melodies and lush chords.
