Claus Casper, Matchy & Bott – Source Of Funk EP


3516-232998_600.jpgLabel: HIVE AudioRelease: 15/12/14 

For their latest, HIVE Audio turns its attention to the work of Claus Casper, who locks horns with Matchy & Bott on the effervescent EP that is the sounds of the Source of Funk EP. With so much going on here, it’s the sort of effort that’ll appeal to fans of various persuasions, and in spite of this, it retains a vague crossover essence in spite of its discerning and underground edge.

Of the two tracks on show, it’s ‘The Source’ that really sticks out from the pack. Pounding and utterly relentless, it only calms down briefly for breath, before its pronounced drumwork and a mound of percussion come up trumps ahead of another onslaught of unsubtle basslines. A wonderful example of how to merge all three production techniques, this one will take some beating on peak-time floors, that’s for sure.

‘Down Da Funk’ makes use of a frankly insane sounding vocal showing, and once more the producer’s studio nous comes into play with some esteem. If you like your classic sounding Strictly Rhythm, then chances are this one is for you, as it cleverly toes the line between garage and Latin-inspired house. As funky as they come! 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
