We’re a bit late on this one, as the promo came through a while back, but to our ears that seems appropriate as this is something of a slow burner; an EP which really opens up the more you listen. It comes courtesy of Geeeman, one of the many aliases of Dutch acid veteran Gerd and is released on Aus Music. It follows their massive Bicep release, but is an entirely different proposition, replacing acid-soaked melodies with tough, funky Chicago licks on one hand and Berlin warehouse vibes on the flip. On first listen it’s a certified head-nodder but its intricate layers only really reveal themselves on closer inspection. The title tracks gives us a funky syncopated shuffle over a bang-on techno kick and a pitched down vocal line that oozes US ghetto vibes. The instrumental is a glorious low-key burner with crushed snares and flying hats peppered over rumbling sub bass. Clone veteran Aldon Tyrrell steps in on the dark side for two remixes and does what he does best – pounding 4am take-no-prisoners techno that wouldn’t be out of place at one of Super Hans’ parties “that go beyond fun and actually get really really nasty”.
