After seducing the likes of Optimo, Horse Meat Disco, Rub N Tug and Bicep with their floor-friendly reworks of classic disco, funk and electro, the lads over at Fatty Fatty Phonographics are expanding their repertoire with their first 12 inch of original material.
The man they've chosen for this mission, Tim Blake, is a Dublin born music maker with a bank of vintage keyboards and drum machines in his spare room and a full blooded romantic's heart beating in his chest.
Now based in Berlin, his debut 'Heat Crime' EP came out on Kleine Reise Records, a label run by a set of Irish messers who throw some of the city's very best parties, and a track on the recent Dirt Crew Recordings 10th anniversary compilation has helped spread the word about this special talent further.
'United States of Hinterland' in its demo form was described as 'The Shit' by none other than Mad Mike Banks of Underground Resistance and you can see why - banks of emotive, UR drenched synths and pads married to overpowering piano chords, wild psychedelic guitar, crazed drum patterns and an unmistakeable 21st Century P-Funk squelch.
Pablo and Shoey have their fun with the track on the flip, upping the ante with a big fat 303 assault while retaining the elements that make the original such a trip.
The package is rounded off nicely with a hypnotic dub for the Dj's, not to mention 'Haunting Passion', a churning,yearning deep house roller that pushes all the right buttons for the modern dancefloor.
You can imagine this one cooling the dancers off at 6am, or providing just the right soundtrack for a blissed out summer sunset moment... [txt from ]
