biblical heat from the one and only floorplan as the father-daughter duo of robert and lyric hood return with two new tracks for roberts m-plant label. so glad conveys the classic floorplan sound, blending gospel vocals with a disco house groove that s ripe and ready for the summer. meanwhile, flipside i feel him moving is harder edged and tracky with a tough chicago house twist under its preacher sampling.
sophie lloyd produced calling out in a dreary january as an antidote to the pervading doom and gloom of the news, summoning the power of the most joy-filled sound of all, gospel. the track radiates all the live atmosphere of gospel worship in mid flow, with soul trio dames brown bringing the authenticity. following the 7” release, which sold out due to huge demand, comes the 12” complete with the original version plus two brand new mixes from floorplan. the duo of detroit techno pioneer robert hood and his daughter lyric hood are well known for their gospel-infused sound with hood’s hometown influences always apparent. their club mix opens with a heavily swinging groove which breaks down into pure 4/4 indulgence, while the revival mix singles out the looped piano and organ riffs. putting their assertive spin on this new classic anthem, floorplan turn up the levels on calling out, bathing it in further glory.
will saul and tee mango continue the primitive trust ep series with their third release. little love ep is a blissful 3 track package featuring a floorplan remix. little love builds warm harmonies driven by syncopated bass grooves whilst tee mangos dub of tejon heads for the sun with radiant, shuffling chords. for the remix, floorplan delivers unrestrained rapture on a peak time roller full of cathartic vocal bursts.
floorplan delivers two excellent reinterpretations of radio slave ‘feel the same’, the title track from the rekids founder’s forthcoming album. made up of former underground resistance member robert hood and his daughter lyric, the detroit duo needs little introduction and last year saw the release of their illustrious album ‘victorious’ on hood’s m-plant. the first remix of ‘feel the same’ extends to eight minutes long and is a journey, incorporating echoing chords, intricate percussion and a medley of esoteric effects whilst cackling laughter ebbs in and out of the mix. meanwhile, the flip sees a more up front interpretation with its heady hook, rolling drums and energetic claps.
(3lp + cd. triple pack with full colour outer & inner sleeves) floorplan is already well known as robert hoods house outlet, which this year evolves into a family affair with co-production alongside his daughter, lyric.
