I’ve been keeping my eye on The Living Graham Bond ever since he won AC Slater’s Hello remix competition back towards the start of the year. His unique, fresh, bassliney jackin’ house style has caught my attention and I’m getting quite addicted his tunes.
Firstly, I’ve had his B Rich remix on repeat on the myspace player for the last couple of months – it slipped under my radar that Palmsout had announced the winners of the competition. This came a very graceful second and I’m very happy to be able to share it with you lot. That hook in there, well… it just makes me want to dance. Get it on repeat (and loud) and you’ll see what I mean. I need an extended version!
Make Me Dance (TLGB Remix) – B.Rich [RUDEEE]
After a busy few months not just with his production but some big bookings too, he is properly set to break into the big game with his debut EP on Venga Digital. “Incredibly Soft” is the title track and my favourite on the release. Clever vocals, chopped to perfection with innovative drum patterns, progression and breaks. The bouncy basslines make a perfect accompaniment to give a fresh blend of Fake Blood crossed with Mowgli - each tune has a well thought-out structure and rhythmic feel.
"Great songs. Excellent productions and nice and quirky. Love all the little vocal samples. Gets my support." - Lee Mortimer
