BUSY TONE EP
Release date: 20.06.2012
Music Style: Disco / Cosmic
Article No.: 1785329 / HOD004
With the third release still occupying both the charts and dance floors, as universal plaudits ripple through the great disco ensemble, HOD’s fourth release Busy Tone will no doubt be greeted with the warm embrace and support it so richly deserves.
To kick-start proceedings, OOFT! - the productive mask of Glasgow-based Ali Herron - presents ‘Mazin’. In recent years OOFT! has furnished us with a number of memorable deep, pitched-down gems, and in this slow burner he delivers yet again. Imagine waking up in the morning and realising that summer was a permanent season and you didn’t have to work ever again: this would compliment that feeling perfectly.
In ‘Seventh’, the two halves of Dikso Records certainly make this a wholesome treat, as you would always expect from the collective craft of Daniel Solar and Andi de Luxe, masterfully blending a techno backbone with a stunning disco complexion. Quite simply, two of Germany’s finest at their best.
The label welcomes back the well-groomed Debonair for his second outing, following on from the furore of ‘Why?’ and Conor Bevan, who dresses as sharply as he produces, proves that he’s here for the long-haul with ‘Your Love’. In true Debonair style, he injects a vibrant club tempo into a classic disco sound, without removing any of the original charm. You could say his feet are now firmly under the HOD table.
Australia’s dance music progeny have been setting the pace in recent times, and one of these family members is Late Nite Tuff Guy. The versatile producer consistently makes jam after jam, including his superior Tuff Edits volumes, and his signature is evident in the gorgeous ‘I’m Going Outta My Head’ – a fine display of meticulous loops and soulful vocals that would easily resuscitate a lagging party.
