After the release of their acclaimed 1st anniversary compilation, ClekClekBoom Recordings already have another EP ready to go, coming in the shape of a vinyl-only white label from CCB’s co-founder and figurehead French Fries.
Having supplied the imprint's inaugural "What to Do / One ting Dub" white label in July 2012, the second installment finds the producer going back to an prior analogue jam session, where producer used only his beloved Minimoog Voyager, an old Sequential Circuits drumtraks and the classic TR 909.
Inspired by Chicago's producers from the Dance Mania era, French Fries also lays down his own vocal freestyle of "Drums-Traxx" across the EP.
The first part, ‘Drums’ uses an infectious acid bassline to cut through an overdriven Detroit inspired groove.
The flipside, "Traxx" is the result of a lengthy jam session with Chaos in the Cbd in French Fries' studio and uses the same sounds for a different purpose. For this Chicago flavoured version, a 4x4 kick propels the groove accompanied by loose, pitched toms and distorted hats
“Drums / Traxx” undoubtedly drips with old-school Detroit & Chicago House influence but as the impassioned vocal chant of the EP title sprinkled across both tracks reinforces, it is not purporting to be anything but a sincere, superbly executed homage to a classic era.
