San Francisco's Safeword (Marc Smith and Clint Stewart) have been on a tear since forming last year in San Francisco. Right off the bat they've hit a stride with releases on fine labels such as Dessous, Paso Music and are currently remixing for the mighty Mobilee. This, their debut EP on Bad Animal titled "West Portal," weaves down more soulful yet dark avenues. Deep vibes, smooth synths and silky vocals are perfectly accompanied by heavy, churning rhythms and reflections of acid house.
The legendary Smash TV lend their expertise to round off the EP with an acid house monster of a party jam. While still retaining the dusty soul of the original material, the duo has brought their Midas touch to Bad Animal with this golden rework. Massive stuff!
This fine EP will be released on vinyl late March, with the digital to follow shortly thereafter. For press inquiries or licensing contact email@example.com.
