It seems odd that we have to introduce the London mainstay and Lion & Lamb resident Mr. Bobby Pleasure to the fold, but it is indeed his first solo outing and what an incredible record it is! Three originals that blur the boundaries between house and techno whilst maintaining a heavy dance-floor orientation, backed up with none other than a (very) special Craig Richards remix.
Mahe instantly reminded us of getting loose at 6/7am in Fabric Room 1, it is a huge, growling techno masterpiece, definitely one for those mind-bending moments! Let Me Clear My Throat – no rascal trumpets to be found here! Instead, Bobby serves us up something that wouldn’t look out of place on an early 2000s Perlon B-Side. Arpeggiated synths and rumbling subs are the flavors of the day, again topped by a twisted, weird & original vocal by the man himself. On the flip, we are really happy to welcome Fabric legend & Houghton curator, Craig Richards to Trouble Maker. His interpretation of >Elton & David< hits home with what you d expect from the master of ceremonies. Stripped back, groove-ridden glitchy goodness. The follow up from >My Friend is Losing his Mind< a rare Craig Richards remix is always welcome! The original, written just days after last years Houghton Festival is just as tasty. Rattling groove-led drums & warping basslines round off this very unique and dance-floor ready debut EP from Bobby Pleasure.
