Uri Allgood announces his four-track EP ‘Gone Fishin’
Uri Allgood’s four-track EP ‘Gone Fishin’ comes out on Late Night Munchies May 27th.
Coming off a dreamy release on Desert Heart Records, Uri Allgood has set his sights on the dance floor with the first single, ‘Slapping Da Bass’. The tongue-in-cheek tune is meant to have people laughing as much as dancing, with a familiar phrase about slapping the bass, twisted and remixed into a floor weapon that’s proven to work time and time again.
Upon arriving at Heathrow airport in 2005 a SoCali swagged out Uri Allgood hopped in a minicab headed for the city. The pirate radio sounds blaring from the cabbie’s speakers were foreign to Allgood’s ears, and at the same time intoxicating. And from that point forward, nothing would ever be the same.
Allgood is forever chasing that first contact high. What started with underground grooves dusted with familiar R&B vocals has become an endless pursuit for crafting and playing the perfect tune.
Allgood’s productions and DJ sets strive to recreate that moment of awe amongst new house fans and underground aficionados alike. Allgood teases with familiar sounds that hook the audience while taking them beyond anywhere they knew they could go. He fuses his love of 80’s new wave, Motown, Disco, Hip Hop, Deep Booty House, and intergalactic laser beams to be a beacon of vibes. He shares his love for leftfield sounds and unpredictable moments leaving clubgoers dancing all night and on a good night fully out of the body.
Slappin Da Bass reminded me why I got into producing and DJing in the first place… to have a good time! I remember laughing to myself cutting up the sample and that element of fun is what I hope comes through with each listen.
We premiere ‘Slapping Da Bass’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.
