Our first offering of 2015 is our second EP by Tippy Toes, the Brooklyn-based duo comprised of engineer/producer Abe Seiferth and multi-instrumentalist Morgan Wiley of Midnight Magic and Hercules & Love Affair fame.
Unlike the debut 12”, which was equal parts stoned, dubby disco and a sort of heady reimagining of progressive house, Love Reminder is a ready-for-the-radio package containing two vocal house tracks and two remixes that hearken back to the classic tropes and styles of the Chicago, Detroit, and Jersey days. The singer, Vasillus, has a gentle voice that lands softly, but firmly; it's husky and round, making it a perfect complement to the instrumentals, which are buttery smooth, filtered out for days, and hooky. When we say “hooky,” we mean it —“Love Reminder” and “Heaven” are bubblegummy pop tracks of the highest caliber and will remain lodged in your head for a long while.
The B-side features two remixes by LPH friend, party guest, and all-around awesome fella, Shit Robot, who recently released his second LP on DFA, the label he's been exclusively putting material out with since 2006. Both versions were mixed by Manuel Tur.
We hope you fall in love all over these gorgeous pieces and you enjoy them as much as we do.
