Double release day! Get ready for a classy package of cosmic disco and 8-bit indiedance! Out now are two essential EPs: Rubberlips – The Traveller Remixes and Sonus – Refrigerator.
Rubberlips is a tightly-knit collective of musicians from West Yorkshire in the north of England. At the helm is Robert Burbidge, a session trumpeter of many years whose musical talents and unique network of local artists, musicians and producers has over-seen the Rubberlips collective emerge as one of the brightest talents on the UK’s electronic music scene.
Rubberlips “The Traveller” in the “Twisted Tongue Remix” is a laid-back and funky sunset disco groove with uplifting strings, the kind of music you want to listen to to let your mind drift away for a few minutes. Ilya Santana delivers a cosmic beach club and mind travel anthem, Plastique de Rêve adds the “let’s get the party started” feel with some more driving synths, and then, Jonty Rose turns “The Traveller” into a hypnotic cosmic disco masterpiece, the right soundtrack for travelling into space. What a ride! Cosmic Disco at its best. And a beautiful hand-made cover sleeve artwork by German artist Fehmi Baumbach.
Kyle is quite a usual guy. Or so it seems. He loves skateboarding and playing guitar. In Melbourne, Australia. So, besides an unusually great place to live, is there any need to envy this bloke? Unfortunately, there is. Cause Kyle is not only Kyle, for when criss-crossing his computer, he turns into Sonus. And this superhero of an electronic music producer just gave us this tune. „Refrigerator“! Good thing is, the title is as easy to remember than the hookline, a transparent, well-and-open-minded 8-bit sunrise feel good tune in the vein of MGMT. Superhit! With this white dancing rabbit of a tune as well as the deeper minimal house track “Late Night” (Ibiza!), Sonus sheds more than enough of light into these dark, dark days of european winter. So do the remixes, manufactured by Felipe Sa (cosmic!), Lazy Kiss (Funkytown!), Airsouth (Cote D’Azur meets Paris!) and Yoshiyuki Ota (old skool mind machine!).
