Lost Records’ bosses Leftwing & Kody debut on Matthias Tanzmann’s Moon Harbour this September with a punchy three-track EP entitled ‘Gully’.
Since their beginnings in 2012, Leftwing & Kody aka Chris Aidy and Jon Kong have pretty much conquered the electronic music scene with massive releases on labels like OFF Recordings, Suara, VIVa Music, Relief Records and of course their own Lost Records label.
This debut EP on Moon Harbour entitled ‘Gully’ see’s the lads team up with talented Nigerian vocalist Isis Salam. The now Berlin-based artist has collaborated recently with the likes of Adam Shelton and Lars Moston too much appraisal and she sounds savage in this new venture.
The EP opens with ‘With My Body’ a slick, weighty tech-house roller with plenty of infectious percussion hits and pounding kick drums entwined with icy hat shuffles. As the track unfolds the vibe takes on a more seductive, crazed vibe when Salam’s teasing vocal enters the fray and signals the start of cool latin drum riffs.
‘Slay‘ is next with its solid 4/4 drum lines that’s underpinned with heaving, pulsating bass lines and subdued synth loops. Plenty of cool filter breaks and rises in this one that lead to real dance floor aimed moments. The spoken vocal from Salam is commanding and compliments the calculated track perfectly.
Closing the EP is title-track ‘Gully‘ a rubbery drum-led sound that carries plenty of energy with its layered synth shots and shuffling top percussion lines. This one takes the EP on a more glitchy, intergalactic type of vibe with its sci-fi fx shots, detuned robot-type vocal all underpinned by quality rhythmic percussion sequences that really bring the funk.
A very decent debut from the lads on Moon Harbour, a label that always commands something special.
The ‘Gully’ EP will land on September 29th, 2017 via Moon Harbour.
