Fresh from the success of the Guilty Pleasures EP by Satin Jackets & Ejeca, next up from the ever growing House of Disco Records is Finnebassen’s – ’Baby’ EP. Boasting make overs from Monitor 66, Ron Basejam and Debonair along with the original track itself, this is a vinyl with credentials that speak for themselves.
The EP opens with the original track ‘Baby’ from the Norwegian born producer Finnebassen. With previous releases titled ’Babies’ ’Footsteps’ and ’Bleedin out’ I’m starting to wonder if there’s some sort of subliminal message at work. However with the rate at which he’s been outputting releases lately there are no signs that he has anything other than more music on the way. ’Baby’ is not what we have become accustomed to expecting from Finnebassen, it strays away from his usual deep poignant echoing house tracks. Instead it’s a rich funk filled gem of a track that he’s shown he is capable of through his ’silly pilly edit’ of It’s gonna take a long time. With bluesy lead guitar riffs and his trademark bass line it’s the perfect soundtrack for a blossoming summer season.
The first remix of the EP comes from Swedish trio Monitor 66 who produce under the ethos of creating ’’music for sunsets.’ The track certainly embodies that motif as gorgeous saxophone licks and chiming synths over a shifting bassline give it a deep tropical feel.
No this isn’t some Darude remix for all you children of the 90′s. This is a blissful masterpiece from Compuphonic, Kolombo, and Monitor 66. Monitor 66 remixes it of course, but just seeing these three names together makes me excited.
All three separately are amazing and I follow each one of them closely so when this came my way today I knew we had something special. This one is on repeat.
Monitor 66 just released a preview of their newest remix. Out November 19th exclusively on Beatport. December 3rd all stores.
I love that they’re inspired by “funky bass lines and sunsets.” They’re already responsible for one of top tracks of 2012… “Triscuits.’ I can’t wait to hear this whole release. The future is bright for this Sweedish group.
Eh fuck it I’ll just make up something so here it is: The Friday Five. Five songs I’ve been listening to this week that I’ve yet to post or write about. I hope everyone has a great weekend whether that involves music or not. I’m checking out Com Truise tonight and The String Cheese Incident on Saturday.
