Sir Lord Commix
RETROACTIVE PART 3
12" Vinyl UK
Matt Edwards’ R-Time Records reissue label drops four more Sir Lord Commix tracks in the third ‘Retroactive’ release.
Real name Amoon Andrews, the British house producer’s early discography continues to fetch high prices on the vinyl market. Dropping earlier this year, the first two instalments featured some of Commix’s finest cuts and now the Rekids offshoot presents the third chapter, following re-releases of Mark The 909 King,
FBK and Sanasol (Thor & Yagya).
The origins of the opening and closing tracks from this record both go back to ‘Evidence’, an exquisite release that dropped on Future Monument in 1997. Space fused melodies set the tone for the otherworldly ‘Evidence’ – a deep house cut that oozes with soul – whilst the euphoric ‘Flash ‘N’ Folks’ layers uplifting cosmic synths over a polished bassline.
Appearing on Brighton’s Ugly Music in ’98, high-spirited arpeggio keys are balanced over funk-infused drums in ‘Soul House’. Tying it all together, the pitched up ‘B Boy Disco’ - appearing on Hard Up during the ‘90s - features ghetto house textures and lo-fi aesthetics those float throughout. [info from ab]
