AYHP / CFOE (MORRIS COWAN REMIX)
12" Vinyl UK
Nixwax are thrilled to welcome Jackson Blumenthal into the fold as the second in the new Black and White Label series.
AYHP is a track of two halves, making it perfect to be cut (exclusively) to vinyl; a quick glance at the surface will tell you how you want to play it. The first part lays down a solid groove leading to a hypnotising breakdown which, played at the right moment, will make for the most memorable tune of the night. Jackson then takes you back into the mesmerising rhythm, saturated with cheeky delays and intricate ear candy for the more discerning listeners.
Working on the philosophy that one chord works, two chords is pushing it and three chords is basically jazz, the B side, "CFOE" is a roller that has been getting the support of the Fuse London gang, Archie Hamilton, Claus Voigtmann and Moxie to name but a few. With an infectious bassline and an airy sense of space, this one has been doing the business whenever it's been played out and about.
The AYHP remix is something different to round off the record, to which Morris Cowan brings the same magic that made his Wigflex album, Six Degrees, one of our favourites of 2013. Taking the vocal elements from the breakdown as his starting point, Morris expertly reinvents the A-side with his own style and sound in full effect. [info from label]
