Round Table Knights – Midnight Spark

If you’ve paid attention to the work of Round Table Knights over the past year or two, then you’ll already be acutely aware that their raison d’etre is house music for the floor. The Swiss boys have built up a more than credible career out of the fact, while their appeal never really fades thanks to a way of working which sees them drop bomb after bomb on our most receptive ears. On their most recent outing – a fantastic two-tracker for Exploited – we’re reminded of their vast and unquestionable talents thanks to two more delicately produced numbers which wonderfully play to the boys’ strengths.

On that note, ‘Midnight Delight’ is as excellent an RTK release as I’ve encountered in some time. Full of cascading piano lines, bulging synths and well-primed, twinkle-toed melodies, it’s the sound of a duo whose sound has almost grown up in recent times. Truly excellent stuff from the guys here.

‘Midnight Spark’, the title track, is a more novelty based track (listen to it and you’ll see why), and while it doesn’t boast any sort of great staying power, it will at least cause a few bemused looks on the dancefloor. Again, it’s RTK at their positive and most potent; and all in all it wraps up what is an altogether electrifying EP with some aplomb.

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.
