BASSO Drum Chums Vol 1 TD-CHUMS
New mutant offshoot from the Talking Drums crew…
You know how it goes at the after party, over indulge and you end up hogging the conversation. So, in the interest of better dancefloor discourse allow us to present Drum Chums, a new series of edits by percussion pals from across the globe.
This inaugural edition comes from our good buddy Basso, a Hamburg homie whose digging expertise is rivalled only by his scalpel skills and superb silliness.
Dipping into the darkest corners of his ever-Growing Bins, Basso shines up a quartet of rediscovered delights for an edit EP which oozes grooves and off balance moves.
On an uptempo A-side, the German luxuriates in the spectral arps, glistening licks and uplifting chords of fusion boogie winner ‘Do Stay For Breakfast’, before serving the steamy, sultry and seductive vampire disco jam ‘Soft Choppers’
Things take a turn for the Balearic on the B-side thanks to the Afro-tropical pop of ‘Simple Stroll’, all electroid bass, chugging percussion and playful guitar, and finally the cosmic cool of ‘Breaking Bread’, a spaced out bossa for heads and feet.
