CP Connection is the new moniker of Peter May and dance music veteran Chris Scott who's early success as part of 90's UK top 10 band Happy Clappers has led to him having years of experience touring the globe and producing as both Happy Clappers, Lexicon Avenue and Echomen. Here they've joined forces with Mark Nigrelli on vocals and turned out 'Manipulate' a track bound to cause a stir among the underground heads and hit the Deep House scene like a hammer! They get to work with electro synth lines riding over the huge rolling bassine backed up with sharp percussion elements. Oozing with groovy melodies and funk this heads up the release with full force.
On remix duties we've drafted in Bournemouth based DJ/Producer Charlie Banks, the 19 year old has already made an auspicious entry into the house scene with a chart topping EP on Berlin's Dirt Crew Recording's, an EP for ever on-point house label Hypercolour, as well as various remixes including one for Irish housemasters Jet Project, all the time aiming to hone his own individual and recognisable production voice amongst a sea of sound-alikes. His passions lay with bumpy house of the sort Julio Bashmore and Huxley have perfected recently, with more garage and bass influences. Here he has followed suit and complimented the original well but with added elements of Acid house thrown into the mix for good measure.
Rounding off the release is CP Connections 'Deadhead' mix, a deep, dubby late-night affair with a real outro feel to it, the perfect contrast to finish the EP on.
