Join The Dots // DOT010
Duffstep ‘Together EP’
Release Date December 12 2011
Distributed by ST Holdings
In the last year Duffstep has released his debut album to shed loads of critical acclaim, released multiple singles and knocked out remixes for the high and mighty , played every festival and clubs across the world and has probably even got off with your mum. Lucky her.
So It’s 10 out of 10 for Join The Dots and as something of a celebration for this release we are returning to one of the mainstays of label Duffstep. Together is a brand new composition mixing the laconic sun-drenched leanings of his album yet with a greater emphasis on the upbeat danceable side of the coin. We celebrate then by combining him with some of the artists that have just released their debut on this very label and one of the brightest young talents to emerge from these shores in quite some time.
New York’s Background Sound fresh from their first release and our last release plumb the depths of underground New York city to the extent that one might think that the Paradise Garage was a club playing the British centric music of the same name. Their version of Duff’s ‘Together’ is epic without being overblown and dark but intelligent enough that the lights are still firmly switched on, a two step ridden steed wrapped in a soft blanket if you like.
Youandewan is a young lad (some might call mad professor) that could easily be forgiven for getting high on the hype such is the buzz around this guy at the moment. Having just released a remix for Maya Jane Cole’s and getting props from XXX he has turned his hand to crafting ‘Close’ into a melodic, dubbed and warped out piece of cinematic soundtrack music. It sits somewhere between classical ambient leanings but combined with lo-fi aesthetic and comprehension of mood that is fast becoming his trademark
Resisting genre classification and giving us all a double hi five Duff drops another dance floor detonation device able assisted by two of the games brightest stars, for once it’s duff and Join The Dots that feel like the old boys in town.
